Boys soccer: Moore's five goals power Philo rally

By

DUNCAN FALLS — Slade Moore missed a field goal that would have given Philo the lead in first half against Crooksville on Friday night.

He took out his frustration on the Cambridge soccer team Saturday.

Moore, a senior, scored three of his five goals in the second half as the Electrics overcame a three-goal deficit in an 8-5 win at the Philo Athletic Complex.

“He’s pretty unstoppable,” Philo coach Matt Brown said. “They couldn’t stop him and had to foul him, and we got two (penalty kicks) because of it. I knew Slade was going to have a good year. He’s done a lot of work to have it culminate with his senior season. He’s seeing the fruit of his efforts.”

Cambridge led 5-2 at halftime.

Moore also scored twice in the first half, while Austin Roe scored twice in the second half and Max Harmon added another. Roe also had a pair of assists.

“I think we just wore them down,” Brown said. “We played so many through balls that we finally broke them down. We scored three goals in the span of four minutes.”

Jordan Swingle had 10 saves, and Philo outshot Cambridge 16-14.
