Baltimore County, Md. – The more than 100 guests on hand Saturday at CCBC Essex for the CCBC Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony were treated to a festival of goals, as the Knights men and women soccer teams each blanked Hagerstown 13-0.
On the women's side, the Knights (8-1, 5-0 Maryland Juco) got off to a hot start in the third minute when Kara Dietrich (Perry Hall) found the back of the net. She would finish the game with six goals and now has 23 on the season.
It wouldn't take long for another Essex goal.
In the sixth minute, Ashlyn Hales (Eastern Tech) scored on a pass from Dietrich.
Dietrich would continue to let shots fly and in the 12th minute of play Emily Vetri (Sparrows Point) played a ball into Dietrich for the finish and a 3-0 lead.
Taylor West (North Point) picked up her second goal on the season two minutes later. West made a run down the sideline to a ball played by Mikayla Boyle (Eastern Tech).
Peyton Apruzzese (Severna Park) scored her first collegiate goal in the 26th minute. The sophomore has played more than 700 minutes in goal and this season has seen time in the field.
It would be more of the same in the second half. Dietrich would score twice more within two minutes with assists coming from West and Boyle.
Trinity Pfeifer (Sparrows Point) would replace Sam Tornatore (Eastern Tech) between the pipes in the 55th minute.
The Hawks did not register a shot in the contest, so neither goalie registered a save.
Mia Brookshire (Sparrows Point) would close out the scoring for Essex in the 81st minute with her first collegiate goal.
In the second minute of play, Essex's Isaiah Price (Bowie) went on a breakaway and tapped the ball around Hagerstown's goalie who took out Price just outside the box. The Hawks' keeper was given a red card and the Knights awarded a penalty kick.
The Knights (7-2, 5-1 Maryland Juco) did not convert the penalty kick, but tallied its first goal in the seventh minute after a Hagerstown foul.
Freshman Marvin Martinez (Parkdale) scored his first collegiate goal to give the Knights the early 1-0 lead.
In the 13th minute, another foul in the box by Hagerstown led to a Seth Onolaja (Loyola Blakefield) converting a penalty kick to make it 2-0 Essex.
Daigo Adachi (Miyagi, Japan) would score in the 17th minute on a ball from Price.
Price would then score a minute later for the 4-0 Essex lead.
In more double punch action, Rezon Ahmeti (London, England) tapped in a goal from a pass by Sam Adunah (Gar-Field) in the 28th minute. A couple seconds later, Wilfred Tinay (Owings Mills) scored a one on one with a dissecting ball through the defense by Javier Avetrani (Oakland Mills).
Adunah would find the net with another assist coming from Avetrani at 42:34 for a 7-0 lead at halftime.
It took only 10 minutes into the second half for Avetrani to get himself a goal, assisted by Rin Yasui (Miyagi, Japan).
Adachi would score his second goal in the 57th minute with the assist coming from Martinez for a nine-goal lead.
