In a busy week of action, Circleville’s boys grabbed their second win in three ties with an 8-0 win over Western Latham Thursday night.
It was a big night for the youngster Kaden Paxton.
“Freshman Kaden Paxton had another big night for us scoring three goals. He got us going offensively in the first half and his competitive spirit has been huge for us lately,” Circleville coach Evan Callihan said. “Seniors Luke Stout and Liam Goodhart alongside sophomore Anthony commanded the midfield for us and created a lot of scoring opportunities.
“Freshman Blain Fowler continues to take a lot of strides for us as a program scoring an early goal for us.”
Paydon Dillon had two goals for the Tigers with Hayden Liff, Stout and Fowler each scoring once.
Ashton Groff and Jackson Hatfield each had a pair of assists, while Donovan Dillon, Payden Dillon and Stout had one assist each.
Will Flory had three saves.
“I thought we got out to a good start tonight which was something we emphasized before the game,” Callihan said. “We were also able to get all of our players into the game tonight which was great for our program. Our younger guys on the team came in the second half and gave us some great minutes.
“Sophomore Bear Cuic played strong defensively for us alongside freshman Logan Huggins and freshman Austin Bartchy. Sophomore Lucas Cameron also brought us some energy in the midfield for us in the second half. Sophomore Ashton Groff was also able to gather two assists for us tonight from his defensive position and he played with a lot of fight tonight that helped us get the win.”
The Tigers improve to 8-3-2 and are set to play their fourth game in six days with a 10 a.m. matchup at Liberty Union Saturday.
