The Delaware Hayes boys soccer team scored twice in the first 10 minutes on the way to a 3-0 rain-shortened victory at Buckeye Valley in non-league action Monday night in Delaware.
Kyle Klumpp, who led the Pacers with two goals, scored his first on a free kick at the 33:13 mark of the first half.
Then, on Hayes’ next possession, Brian Frisch centered to Briggy Kannally from the right side. Kannally freed himself with one dribble and beat the goalie low on the right to give the Pacers a quick 2-0 lead with 31:54 left.
Klumpp lobbed a ball from about 30 yards off the goalkeeper’s fingertips with 9:19 left in the half to cap the scoring.
“I think Kyle is one of the most technically sound players that I’ve seen at both Hayes and as we play other teams,” Hayes coach Robb Morgan said. “His technical ability to do things on the ball is impressive and it doesn’t surprise me that he put two strikes on net today.”
Jack Scheeler had two saves in goal for the Barons (0-1-1) in the first half before giving way to Cole Davis, who played the full 7 minutes, 7 seconds of the second half before action was stopped.
“Everybody is technically sound on (Hayes’) roster,” BV coach Eric Staley said. “We still have a lot of young, developing guys. I’m starting seven freshmen or sophomores … if they continue to want to get better we’ll have a team that’s built for the future.”
Davidka McCammon stopped two balls in goal for the Pacers (2-0).
Hayes is right back at it today when it travels to Beechcroft in non-league action. Play is set for 5:30 p.m. BV looks to bounce back against Liberty Union in non-league action at home Thursday at 6 p.m.
