Wolverines win 4-1
OBSERVER Staff Report
NORTH COLLINS — After giving up a goal to Anthony Puntillo off a corner kick assist by Mitchell Warsaw less than two minutes into Wednesday’s boys soccer contest against North Collins, the Westfield/Brocton Wolverines trailed for the first time all season.
The Wolverines followed with four unanswered goals to coast to a 4-1 victory over North Collins in a CCAA Central boys soccer game at North Collins High School.
“That was the one question mark I had left, how we’d respond after trailing,” said Westfield/Brocton coach Jared Winder. “The guys did a really nice job responding. I was anxious to see how they would come back after not trailing until now, but I was really impressed. We didn’t press and we continued to play our game.”
Westfield/Brocton’s game is pretty good.
Cooper Harris started the comeback with a goal in the 17th minute, assisted by Josh Heim. Shortly after, Jordan Czak scored his first goal of the season, assisted by Darien Swanson, to give the Wolverines a 2-1 lead headed into the break.
Immediately out of halftime, Brocton’s Gabe Morello doubled the Westfield/Brocton lead, after an assist from Cole Holland. Jack Wolfe also scored his first goal of the year in the 68th minute, on Heim’s second assist of the game. Westfield/Brocton goalkeeper Mike Johnson had six saves in the win.
“It was definitely a good test,” said Winder. “North Collins played a really excellent game.”
Westfield/Brocton improves to 15-0-0 on the season and 9-0-0 in league play. The final test of the year is Wednesday at the NorthLake Soccer Complex in Westfield against defending league champion Maple Grove. Westfield/Brocton won the first matchup by a score of 1-0.
