Rolla Bulldogs 2-0 (0-0 OC)
The Rolla Bulldogs improved their undefeated record as they shut out Warrenton 8-0 in the first round of the Pacific Tournament over the weekend.
The Bulldogs had goals scored by Mohamad Alamaldien, Evan Colench, Noah Hatfield, Erique Cezar and Mostafah Elgawady. Evan Moore shot a hat trick with his three goals in the contest.
The Rolla scorers were assisted by Quincy Cummings, Lane Mabe, Moore, Cezar and Alamaldien with one each. Gabe Stanislawski had two assists in the win. Both Josiah Homan and Ben Fisher split time in goal during the shutout win.
“Probably wasn’t the best game we have ever played but gives us the opportunity to see where we stand against a great Eureka team,” Rolla coach Mike Howard said.
The next challenge will be against Eureka in the semifinal round on Wednesday at 5:45 p.m.
Waynesville Tigers (1-2) (1-1 OC)
The Tigers were 1-1 last week as they face two Ozark Conference teams at home. The first game on Tuesday was a 9-2 win over the Hillcrest Hornets. The Tigers then fell to a tough Springfield Central team 0-1.
“Central played a nice defensive game maintaining a clean sheet and scoring the only goal of the game in the first half. The varsity squad looked in control through much of the match, but struggled to find their scoring touch as several starters went down with injuries,” Waynesville coach Mike Armstrong said.
The Tigers had their opportunities.
“Quality opportunities were created from the outside midfielder Riley Clemons as he continues to have a strong start to the season. Defensively, goalie Isaac Swanson ensured Central only scored one goal despite several quality breakaways,” Armstrong noted. “Caleb Garcia had a solid second half after moving to the center back role.”
The Tigers will host the Willard Tiger this Thursday at Anderson Field by East Elementary around 7 p.m. after the junior varsity game.
