ST. LOUIS, MO. – Six different players scored a goal in Grace’s men’s soccer team’s 6-0 win at Harris-Stowe on Sunday.
The Lancers (5-1-2) rebounded with a dominant performance after suffering their first loss of the year on Saturday.
Sunday’s game against Harris-Stowe was originally scheduled to be played on Friday night, but heavy rains made the surface unplayable.
Grace had a dream start to Sunday’s game as Dominic Harris scored from close range in the fourth minute. It was his third goal of the season and his second in two days.
Before halftime, the Lancers would add two more goals. Damon Binkley scored in the 28th minute off an assist by Jon Christensen, and Cody Boerema converted Grace’s third goal just five minutes later.
In the second half, Grace earned a penalty kick less than 15 minutes into the half. Hector Torres stepped up for the attempt and cooly converted from the spot for a 4-0 lead.
Less than 10 minutes later, Breno Oliveira unleashed a deep shot from well outside the penalty box which crashed off the crossbar. Colin Cape was there for the rebound and tucked in Grace’s fifth goal.
Just before the final whistle, Grace tacked on its sixth goal of the match. Mitchell Zeilenga helped spark the attack, and Henrique Cerruti finished with his left foot in the 87th minute.
Kurt Hamlin and Robbie Barnhill combined for the shutout in goal for Grace. Hamlin did the heavy lifting with seven saves in 83 minutes.
The Lancers kick off the Crossroads League season on Saturday, traveling to rival Bethel for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
