There will be parity in Southwest Wake Athletic Conference boys soccer after all. No team is left without a conference loss after Green Hope defeated visiting Middle Creek 6-2 on Wednesday.
By virtue of Panther Creek’s loss to 2-1 Fuquay-Varina, the Falcons moved into first place heading into the weekend.
“We’re a good team, and when we play our game and when we play the game strategy we come up with, we’re a tough team to beat. No doubt about it,” Green Hope coach David Corsbie said.
Never miss a local story.
The Falcons (12-1, 6-1 Southwest Wake 4A) blew open a 3-2 halftime lead with two goals in the 52nd minute. The first when Connor Brookshire had a go at the top of the 18-yard-box and the second when Connor Munz tapped in an assist from Camden Holbrook.
THREE TO KNOW
Camden Holbrook, Green Hope: The conference’s leader in goals and points had two goals and an assist and gave the Mustangs fits down the left flank including a goal in the first minute. He credited everyone else for helping him rack up lots of assists.
“My teammates try to finish all the chances I give them,” Holbrook said.
Connor Munz, Green Hope: Had a hat trick including two goals just four minutes apart.
“It was all my teammates honestly. I didn’t do much but finish,” Munz said. “In this game we really timed our runs better. We really waited for (Holbrook) to make a final cut because sometimes he’ll cut back in and whip it in, so we just stayed with it.”
Anthony Boswell, Green Hope: Linked up well will teammates in the attacking third and ended with two assists.
BY THE NUMBERS
1: Goals apiece from Middle Creek’s Eleo Domingos (unassisted) and Peter Moreno (assist Chris Wallace throw-in).
1: Assist by Green Hope’s Davis Linscott.
THEY SAID IT
“I really hope we get a good fan base there, not just Green Hope but general soccer fans. I hope there’s a good crowd there to watch the spectacle,” said Corsbie about Saturday’s Wake County Cup championship between Broughton and Green Hope. The game is 7 p.m. at Cardinal Gibbons.
