Cutthroats (2-0) bring out the defense

Start strong with 3-0, 6-1 wins

They did it with devastating offense the past two years, but the current Community School boys’ varsity soccer team may pin its hopes much more on defense if the first two games of the season are any indication.

Last week, the Cutthroats downed Magic Valley Christian 3-0 behind the goalkeeping of senior Luke Fostvedt and then posted their first league victory 6-1 over Buhl Saturday—both games played at Browning Field.

Coach Richard Whitelaw said he saw promising signs from his defense in front of Fostvedt—sweeper Ash Higgins, stopper Reed Boeger, left back and captain Taylor Rothgeb and right back Corey Warren. All are seniors, except Boeger is a junior.

Higgins was "Man of the Match" last Wednesday in the season-opening 3-0 victory over Magic Valley Christian. Rothgeb, Yancy Caldwell and Higgins (penalty) scored the goals.

The beginning of Saturday’s home league battle against Buhl was delayed 45 minutes because of a hailstorm and rainstorm. And it was tied 1-1 at half, with Buhl doing a good job of hustling to the ball. Bobby Flanigan tallied the only Cutthroat goal of the first half.

Twelfth-year coach Whitelaw earned his 130th victory at the Sun Valley helm as the Cutthroats did a much better job of finishing after intermission. Senior forward John Hayes punched home three straight goals, the natural hat trick coming on a free kick, then Flanigan completed his hat trick to make the final 6-1.

Hayes and Flanigan were named "Men of the Match," by Whitelaw.

Today’s important home match against arch-rival Wood River is one of several big games this week.

Friday at 4 p.m., The Community School (2-0, 1-0 league) entertains a tough Bliss squad (2-0) that opened its soccer campaign with 4-0 victories over Buhl and Filer. On Saturday, Minico of Rupert arrives at Browning Field with the boys’ varsity and junior varsity taking the fields for 1 p.m. games.
