Warren runs record to 7-0
The numbers the Warren boys soccer team are putting up are, well, stunning.
In building a 7-0 record at the season’s halfway point, the Dragons have outscored their opponents 48-3 and posted five shutouts.
Tuesday afternoon it was more of the same.
Behind two goals from Wesley Kiehl, a pair of assists from JT Blum, and a nice effort between the pipes by Alex Ferry, Warren rolled to a 5-1 region win over Saegertown.
“We have a very good group of kids that are very coachable,” Dragons coach Denny Flatt said. “They really love what they’re doing and they make coaching a lot easier. They have had one goal in their minds since it started and they’re playing well together. We expect to play even better in the second half.
“We have great senior leadership and a defense that we trust. … We get a lot of headlines with our offense, but we’ve got a great defense.”
Mark Lynds opened the scoring and Kiehl added a pair of goals as the Dragons opened a 3-1 halftime lead. Assists were credited to Blum, Ian Darling and Corban Reinard. After intermission, John Page tallied an unassisted goal and Parks Ordiway found the back of the net, assisted by Blum.
Armed with yet another victory, the Dragons take to the road on Thursday for a 6 p.m. game against Franklin, but Flatt said they’re not resting on their laurels.
“The past is the past,” he said. ” … The first seven games are over. Now we’re getting ready for the second half of the season.”
