FILLMORE — The Fillmore boys soccer team, admittedly, was seeking a bit of revenge.
Who could blame it?
After all, C.G. Finney had handed the Eagles two of their three losses last year, including a 2-0 blanking that ended their season in the Section 5 Class D1 semifinals. And although it took a half to ensure, Fillmore got its retribution.
Mitch Ward notched a hat trick and the Eagles exploded for six second-half goals in running past Finney 7-2 in a non-league matchup on Tuesday. Amid another strong season for the Allegany County power, the Eagles went to 10-1.
“It was 1-1 at halftime,” Fillmore coach Jamie Mullen said. “We came out and pounded it out them really hard. We were just electrified in the second half — we scored three goals in six minutes. That just got us electrified.
“(Finney) is a great team. Obviously, it feels good to come back and get a little bit of come-uppance.”
Tobias Webb collected two goals and an assist while Mason Cool and Trevor Clark also had tallies for the Eagles. Ethan Peet handed out four helpers and Dylan Valentine made two saves in the win.
Matt Torrell had both goals while Tyler Brown made 10 saves for Finney.
ALLEGANY CO. DIV. I Cuba-Rushford 1, Bolivar-Richburg 0, OTBOLIVAR — Caden Larabee broke a scoreless tie in the overtime session to lift Cuba-Rushford (4-8).
