Nash Mahler scored 1:30 into the first half Tuesday, then added two more goals, as Olean dropped Dunkirk (1-9-2), 5-2, during CCAA Division 1 boys' soccer action at Karl Hoeppner Field.
"I really thought we played one of the best games we played in a while," Dunkirk head coach Brian Crawford said. "They just have too many weapons."
Mahler added his second goal in the sixth minute, before Dunkirk's Zack Meadows beat Huskies' keeper Alex Austin, on a feed from Drew Messina, in the 17th minute to cut the lead in half.

"I thought we had a very good game in moving the ball and staying in our shape and getting chances" Crawford said. "Size wise, they are a much bigger team than we are."
Liam McNamee scored five minutes later to give Olean its two-goal lead back, before Mahler netted his third and final goal of the game for a 4-1 lead.
"He's part of the Olympic Development Program of the Eastern United States," Crawford said. "And they capitalized on some of our mistakes."
Jesus Rojas cut the Olean lead in half on an assist from Nelmy Robles in the 10th minute of the second half, but that would be as close as the Marauders would get as Tommy Kirk finished the scoring to give the Huskies the 5-2 win.
"I Can't ask any more from my kids," Crawford said. "They played a good game against a very good team. They really competed (Tuesday) and I'm happy with the effort."
Nick Kobel stopped 11 shots for the Marauders while Austin stopped six shots for the Huskies.
