Big 1st half sends Barons past Knights


By Ben Stroup - bstroup@aimmediamidwest.com



Charlie Daily and Eli Aquino took turns scoring off each others’ assists to stake the Buckeye Valley boys soccer team to an early 2-0 lead it parlayed into a 5-0 win over visiting Bishop Ready Thursday in Delaware.

Daily broke the scoring seal off a feed from Aquino in the third minute and, 10 minutes later, Aquino made it 2-0 off a pass from Daily.

Ben Daily, Aspen Schneller and Aquino scored the next three, all in the first half, to smooth out the scoring summary.

“Obviously, it was a great first half,” BV coach Eric Staley said. “Charlie and Eli teamed up very well early on and Aspen has had his share of chances on corner kicks, so it was great to see him get one.”

Ready started to find its form in the second half, but Baron keeper Jack Scheeler, who finished with five saves, preserved the shutout.

“We sure looked complacent after halftime,” Staley said. “Ready worked very hard the entire match and really controlled the second half.”
