'Throats score 5-0 win over Filer

Big game at Bliss today

Starting a busy stretch of five games in 10 days, The Community School boys' varsity soccer team scored a 5-0 Fourth District 3A league victory over the Filer/Magic Valley Christian squad Monday at Browning Field, Elkhorn.

Junior forward Alden Remington earned "Man of the Match" distinction for scoring three goals in the Cutthroat victory. At half it was 4-0.

Assistant coach Jason Lynch said, "Alden is our pivot guy, a terrific passer who distributes the ball to our front line. A lot of the effective moves going to our forwards were because of Alden." He added it was good to see Remington score three goals.

Sophomore forward Travis Stone, who Lynch called "a pure scorer," pumped in two goals and reached his goal of exceeding Josh Stanek's sophomore goal-scoring school record set back in 1999 Stone now has a team-high 12 goals.

"We're showing good team spirit," said Lynch, as the Cutthroats head into a crucial series of soccer contests.

The Cutthroats (6-5, 5-2 league) will try to keep their hopes alive for the regular-season league championship when they travel to unbeaten Bliss (5-0-3) today, Wednesday. Bliss beat the Cutthroats 3-2 Sept. 16 and has run the table so far in the 3A league including 5-2 and 6-2 wins over Buhl and Filer last weekend.

Head coach Richard Whitelaw's squad will entertain 4A Minico (3-9-1) Thursday, Oct. 6 at Elkhorn and then attempt to sweep the season series with Wendell (4-2-3, 3-2-3) Monday at Browning Field.

Meanwhile, coach Kelly Feldman's Cutthroat girls have three games over the next four days in preparation for nailing down the top seed in the Fourth District 3A tournament. The Cutthroats (4-4, 4-0 league) need only to beat Wendell at home Monday and Buhl at home Oct. 13. They host Minico Thursday.
