Drew Clement had a foot in four of Olentangy’s five goals, assisting on three and scoring another to lead the Olentangy boys soccer team to a 5-0 win over host Big Walnut Tuesday in Sunbury.

Mateo Montoya broke the scoring seal while Josh Gernert made it 2-0 shortly after. Both goals were assisted by Clement. Clement then scored off a feed from Marc Gil before Jackson Tomsic scored an unassisted tally to smooth out the first-half scoring.

Christian Bowens poured in the lone second-half goal to seal the deal.

The Braves have been good so far this season, but they might be close to getting even better.

“First, keep in mind that we have done all this (2-0-1 record) without our returning leading scoring Matt Celona, who has only played 45 minutes this season and is set to return Thursday against Worthington Kilbourne,” Olentangy coach Kyle Hamrick said. “We have a lot of depth and the boys play together.”

Grant Robinson and Max Fidler combined for nine saves in the shutout win while BW keeper Ryan Kline had 11.

Delaware Hayes 1, Hilliard Darby 0

Briggy Kannally continued his hot start to the season, finding the back of the net to provide the difference in the Pacers’ win over the Panthers Tuesday night.

With the game scoreless heading into the final minutes of action, Kannally finally broke through in the 72nd minute off a feed from Kyle Klumpp. He’s scored eight goals in four games so far this season.

Davidka McCamon and the defense handled the rest en route to collecting the shutout. McCamon finished with eight saves in the win.

Also: Dublin Coffman 4, Olentangy Orange 3; Dublin Scioto 2, Olentangy Berlin 1.

GIRLS SOCCER

Sydney and Taylor McMillin accounted for all three goals as the Delaware Hayes girls soccer team battled to a 3-3 draw against visiting Hilliard Darby Tuesday night.
