COSHOCTON — The Coshocton boys soccer team had its offense firing on all cylinders against visiting West Holmes on Saturday morning at Kids America.
The Redskins peppered the West Holmes goal with 25 shots and used them to post a 7-1 victory over the visiting Knights.
“We are on a nice little roll right now,” CHS coach Brian Dunlap said. “Today we were able to get good ball movement on offense.”
The catalyst to the Redskins’ offensive onslaught was Colton Jordan who had three assists to go with a goal.
“Colton is so dynamic in space and today he was able to get the ball on the wings and beat his man,” Dunlap said. “He has such great feet, but he isn’t the biggest kid, But, when he gets in space, he can be a real handful for teams.”
Coshocton (5-4-3) got off to a quick start behind senior Kyle Corder who tallied two goals in the first half as the Redskins built a 2-0 halftime lead. Corder put in a rebound off the crossbar at the 17:05 mark of the opening half then scored with 12:07 left.
The second half was more of the same for the hosts as just 20 seconds into the half Colton Jordan found Ian Hartley for a goal, and the duo combined again at the 18:40 mark of the second half to make it 4-0.
West Holmes got on the board with 13:32 left in the game when Nick Vaccariello lofted a free kick above the outstretched hands of Coshocton keeper Marc Smith to make it 4-1.
However, the Redskins continued the barrage as freshman Connor Roahrig poked in a loose ball in the West Holmes box to make it 5-1.
Jordan’s third assist came with 1:54 left on a goal by Kyle Bergeron then Jordan finally scored with just 19 seconds left off of a direct kick to cap the scoring.
“The really nice thing about today is that we were able to get our bench guys some quality minutes,” Dunlap said. “We are going to need that depth with the tournament right around the corner.”
Logan Galion made 10 saves in goal for the Knights.
