Hatchets boys soccer cruises past Boonville

The Washington Hatchets beat the Boonville Pioneers 5-0 on Wednesday evening at the Sports Complex.

The Hatchets started off the game slowly, scoring only one goal against the Pioneers in the first 40 minutes.

“The boys came out flat in the first half,” said head coach Quintin Myers. “We just got comfortable. Instead of being aggressive we were sitting back.”

The Pioneers, who give up an average of five goals per game, were able to keep the game at 1-0 for close to 40 minutes.

“To keep it 1-0 [for the first half] that’s a positive for us,” said Boonville head coach Jared Crays. “It’s a quality team. It’s a great team that moves the ball well. It’s something that we don’t’ see a lot of.”

The Hatchets broke through in the second half scoring three goals in just under six minutes. With goals from Nicholas White, Andy Garland and Austin Ghirardelli. The Hatchets controlled the ball for the majority of the second half, getting 17 shots on the Boonville goal compared to the Pioneer’s seven.

“The second half it was a whole new team,” said Myers of Washington. “Winning balls in the air, owning the midfield and running the offense. Guys were just crashing [the goal] and getting bodies on the ball.”

Boonville played a game of survival for the majority of the second half. Often choosing to deliberately kick the ball out of bounds than attempt to block Washington shooters. As the game went on, Boonville players committed a total of 18 fouls compared to Washington’s nine.

“The biggest factor there towards the end was getting mentally tired,” said Crays. “Not a lot of subbing going on from our end and just the same players going hard. We made mental mistakes.”

With the win, the Hatchets improve to an 11-1-1 record heading into two away games against Northridge and Ft. Wayne Canterbury this weekend.

“The boys know the teams we’re about to run into this weekend,” said Myers. “Playing Ft. Wayne Canterbury is a treat. They’re a very skilled team, they’ve won multiple state championships, it’s an honor to get to play them. Now that we’re back in their bracket we just need to show and show them that we can compete with them.”
