Saturday’s boys soccer matchup between Mount St. Joseph and Proctor was a tale of two programs having starkly different seasons. MSJ came into the match with a 0-8-1 record while Proctor brought a record of 8-0-1. The first win of the season for MSJ is still eluding them.
Five times the Proctor boys found the back of the net after a strong corner kick from Joe Valerio found one of the boys near the box. The corner kick is a difficult play to score on because everyone ends up so close together, but Proctor made it look easy over and over on Saturday.
Conner McKearin scored two goals and also had an assist. Brennon Crossman, Jed Nop and Solomon Parker each added a goal apiece while MSJ’s Jacob Woods put one home for the Mounties. The Phantoms held a 5-1 lead at the half.
Bryson Bourne added the sixth and final goal, again off a corner kick, for the Phantoms who won the game 6-1. Camden Richardson played goalkeeper due to a hamstring injury to regular keeper Ian French. Proctor will play at home against Mid Vermont Christian on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 4 p.m.
