The Scottsbluff boys continue to roll with a 6-0 win over Buffalo, Wyoming, on Tuesday at Landers Soccer Complex.
The Bearcarts are off to a 3-0 start on the season.
Dakota Andrews fed Charly Gomez 4:20 into the match for the Bearcats’ first points of the game.
Francisco Morales connected with Kellon Harris at the 34:41 mark in the first to put Scottsbluff up 2-0 before halftime.
Scottsbluff boys coach Nate Rock said it took his team a little time to get going on offense.
“We played excellent,” he said. “We lulled a little bit until about the 10th minute.(Buffalo was) pretty aggressive and pretty physical with us, and we kind of lulled a little bit, but after that I thought we were pretty dominant the entire game.”
Rock said it was the first time during this young season that they were faced with aggressive, physical play.
“We just hadn’t seen it yet this year,” he said. “Some of the players just needed to be reminded that soccer is a physical game. Once they were reminded of that, they gave as good as they got. It was a good game.”:
The Bearcat offense kicked into high gear in the second. Octavious Gonzalez hit the back of the net on an assist by Aaron Schaff at 10:18 into the second to go up 3-0.
Porter Robbins made it 4-0 with a goal at 16:54 in the second.
At 24:22 in the second period, Karim Castillo-Leos provided Braden Anderson with the assist. Francisco Morales closed out the match with a goal at 37:02 on a feed by Andrews, his second assist of the game.
Rock said his team was able to pick it up on the offensive end in the second after keeping Buffalo on its heels.
“Our possession I think tired them out. We try to make teams make choices, kind of pick their poison. We were able to do that a little bit. I think they got tired as the game went on. We made some adjustments. We were able to score for in the second half.”
Scottsbluff has an early season test when they travel to North Platte on Monday, March 29.
“That will be a big test for us, We don’t have a traditionally great record against North Platte, so it’ll be a challenge for us,” Rock said. “It’s still pretty early season. It’s hard to tell exactly what we’re going to be dealing with. We’ve been focusing on ourselves, instead of worrying about what our opponents do which we can’t have any control over. We aare really focused on what we want to do. I think we have spent less time focusing and trying to scout other teams and more time working on ourselves this year.”
