Community School win streak hits lucky 13

Wood River first team to score on Sun Valley in eight games

Express Staff Writer

The Community School boysí soccer team continued its unbeaten streak with a 6-2 win at home over rival Wood River on Monday.

The win assured the Cutthroats the top seed in the upcoming District tournament and stretched their undefeated record to 13-0.

Cutthroat senior Sean Higgins scored three goals against Hailey and was named Man of the Match by coach Richard Whitelaw

On Monday, the Wolverines came out hoping to avenge the 2-1 loss to Community School earlier in the season. But the Cutthroats dashed those hopes early in the game with two goals from Sean Higgins in the first ten minutes.

Wood River responded with a goal from Jorge Giribet-Canto to bring the score to 2-1.

Back-to-back penalty kicks within minutes of each other made the score 3-2 in favor of the home team. Josh Sonneland scored for the Cutthroats and Tate Mills knocked one in for Wood River.

Millsí goal was the last rallying cry for the Wolverines. John Hayes and Higgins each tallied goals late in the half to give the Community a comfortable 5-2 lead going into half-time.

After an intense and high scoring first half, both teams came out with weary legs and the second half proved to be a nearly even battle.

Quick saves by Wood River defenders Matt Hansen and Cutthroat defenders Taylor Rothgeb stopped near goals for each team.

But Hayes notched his second goal of the game to give the Community School a commanding 6-2 lead, which held until the final whistle.

It was Wood Riverís fifth straight loss to the Community School in two years.

Cutthroat coach Richard Whitelaw was happy with his teamís performance but commended the effort of Wood River and Wolverine goalie Luke Speer.

"We gave up a couple of goals," Whitelaw said. "But anytime you can score six goals against a team like Wood River is a pretty good day."

In earlier games, the Community School beat Filer 6-0 with a hat trick from Sonneland and goals from Higgins (2) and Juan Munoz (1). They also defeated Bliss at home 6-0 with goals from Higgins (2), Austin McCann (1), Drew Stoecklein (1) and "Man of the Match" Munoz (2).

Wood River also had commanding wins earlier in the week, defeating Declo 7-0 and Buhl 8-1. They played District foe Filer on Tuesday.
