Cedarville’s men’s soccer team dominated Alderson Broaddus Oct. 10 at its home field. The Yellow Jackets scored early and put away Alderson Broaddus in the second half with two goals, posting a final score of 3-0.
Cedarville was in control the entire game and played stifling defense to keep their opponent off the scoreboard.
Even though they scored early, they overcame a rather sluggish first half. A goal by sophomore Connor Gilmour started the scoring early. Goals by sophomore Christian Alexander and senior Timmy Waller in the second half put the game away for good.
Coach Brett Faro said he was pleased with his team.
“Overall I thought we played fairly well,” Faro said. “I thought the first half was a little lethargic, but I thought the second half was sharp. I thought we moved the ball well, we were crisp and created a lot of chances.”
Although Cedarville soccer now has a 9-1-2 record, Faro said they always have room to improve.
“We always need to continue to get better as the season goes,” he said.
Cedarville is in good position to make a run for the NCAA Division II championship starting in November.
The Yellow Jackets next game is this Saturday, Oct. 12, at Cedarville against Davis & Elkins.
