September 7, 2012St Clair Athletics
Playing its home soccer opener last Thursday, St. Clair exploded for six goals in the second half in an 8-1 victory over Montgomery County.
The Bulldogs (2-1) led 2-1 at halftime and outscored their opponent 6-0 in the second half.
“It was a warm night and I thought we wore them down in the second half,” said St. Clair Head Coach Ted Koenigsfeld. “We wanted to maintain the pace of the game and we were able to do that.”
Spencer Crumbaugh had a hat trick for St. Clair, finishing with three goals. Jacob Meisel added two goals.
“Spencer had a great game. He was all over the field making plays,” Koenigsfeld said. “It was one of the best games of soccer I’ve seen him play.”
Reno Jones was in goal for the Bulldogs.
“Our defense is progressing. Their one goal came on a penalty kick,” Koenigsfeld said. “Chris Kahlenbeck is doing an outstanding job at sweeper. He’s a senior leader who communicates well and has really stepped up.”
Crumbaugh scored both of the Bulldogs’ goals in the first half on assists by Zach Zollinger and Miguel Aguirre.
St. Clair made the score 3-1 when freshman Braydon Roberts scored his first career goal on an assist from Meisel.
Crumbaugh then completed his hat trick with his third goal, assisted by Tanner Wideman, to make the score 4-1.
Meisel scored two of the final four goals. Wideman and Dylan Eggerding also scored. It was the first career goal for Eggerding, a freshman.
Adding assists were Wideman, Kahlenbeck and Roberts.
“We did a great job controlling the ball and maintaining the pace of the game. Everything seemed to work well for us,” Koenigsfeld said.
“Our boys are learning more about the game of soccer. They have reached a level of maturity that’s helped them become better athletes.”
