POTOMAC – The home team Churchill Bulldogs defeated the visiting Kennedy Cavaliers 4-1 in boys varsity soccer Friday evening.
The scoring began early in the first half as the Bulldogs, playing at home, found themselves with a 3-0 lead before halftime. The Cavaliers pushed forward early in the second but were able to find the net only once before a controversial penalty kick solidified the Bulldogs’ victory.
Churchill began by scoring after just 45 seconds. Junior winger Tamino Brown found himself unmarked to slot in a goal, leaving Kennedy goalkeeper Rexford Frimpong with no time to react.
Churchill's early momentum paid off as senior forward Darius Siahpoosh found the net twice in twelve minutes to triple the score.
"If you look at my goals, they're all from five yards away because my teammates are sending me up," Shiapush said. "I appreciate my teammates, always."
