Callaway Boys’ Soccer Team claim more wins than all of last season in just nine games – Reuters Sports News
The Mercy of the Callaway Boys’ Football Team reigned over Bowdon 12-2 on Thursday night. Callaway went 7-0-2 this season and they’ve now won more games than all of last season. It was a short game for the Cavaliers as they reached the 10-goal mercy rule in 68and minutes of play.
“We came out focused, controlled the ball and scored some quick goals,” said head coach Mike Petite.
Jostin Raymundo was the star for the Cavaliers with a hat trick in the first half, including a goal from the penalty spot. He also contributed with two assists.
Greyson Batchelor and Connor Davis each scored two goals apiece. Jurnee Jordan, Brett Belton, Eli Jones, Angel Velasquez and Nitler Recinos all got on the scoresheet with a goal. Recinos is the starting keeper, but had to play outside the box as the scoreline moved away from Bowdon.
Jones also had an assist with Nelson Herrera with two.
The Cavaliers conceded two goals in the game, both coming on field trades as head coach Mike Petite gave everyone time.
Bowdon’s keeper was out of control the whole game and could have been sent off – he conceded two penalties but only received one caution. The Cavaliers scored from the first penalty but were unable to complete the second.
Despite the score in favor of the Cavaliers, all was not rosy and sunny.
“Our team defends to be better,” Petite said. “We conceded two goals because we made mistakes not only at the back, but we made mistakes up front. Our defense starts with our forwards.
The Cavaliers left the field with a victory for the Callaway faithful but were playing for something much bigger than that tonight.
“This is our seventh annual cancer awareness game,” Petite said. “The guys all had pink ribbon on their wrists with someone’s name in it. Personally, my wife and my mother-in-law were affected by this at the same time, so there is obviously a personal connection for me and all the boys.
Both Callaway teams sported pink jerseys they can keep forever.
