REED CITY — Hart built a 3-0 lead and scored four more goals in the second half for a 7-0 non-league boys soccer victory Monday over host Reed City. Hart, 4-2, was led by Samuel Hernandez with two goals and three assists, Derrek Broaddus added two goals and one assist and Jacob Guevara, Boni Hernandez and Antonio Herrera had one goal apiece. Isiah Rodriguez added an assist. Goalkeepers were Alberto Moui and Brendon Reid.

Bionui Hernandez scored the seventh goal 17:36 into the second half for a 7-0 lead. But the Coyotes picked up the tempo and made shots on net in trying to avert the shutout. Their defense stopped several Hart chances to score the eighth goal in the game’s final 22:24.

“We had a tough game against Whitehall,” said Hart coach Frank Zarate. “I wanted them to have some nice passes with one or two-touches. That’s what we did today.”

Troy Giese was goalkeeper for Reed City, which fell to 1-8.

Saturday, Reed City lost at home 4-1 to Benzie Central. Jacob Swales scored for Reed City, assisted by Quinton Kichak

“Saturday was a very good game,” said Reed City coach Matt Webster. “We had a lot of positives. (Monday) we played well. They’re a better team. We have to keep working.”

The Coyotes play at Crossroads today.

“The last two games I’ve seen some positive things,” Webster said.

Tri County 6, Reed City 0

Tri-County scored one first-half goal and added five more in the second to post a 6-0 non-league soccer win over Reed City Wednesday night.

Tri-County is 6-0.

Jesse Haywood scored in the first half for the Vikings. Miguel Lagunas scored 15;13 minutes into the second half, while Dylan Matulis notched a goal at 22:11 and Bryce Ruppert made it 4-0 at 24:11. Matulis notched his second goal less than two minutes later. Brendan Armstrong put in the sixth goal on a penalty kick with five seconds left.

Goalkeeper Troy Giese had a strong game in net for Reed City.

Tri County beat Reed City the previous week 8-0.

“They played a lot better, Reed City played really well today,” said Tri County coach Vic Matulis. “We were a little soft in the beginning. When we played position ball, we scored a lot of goals.”

“We had a great first half,” said Reed City coach Matt Webster. “After last game when we got mercied, this was a huge thing for us. We were starting to string passes together and pass the ball a little better. We’re doing what we need to do. We keep working hard and keep getting better.”

Webster acknowledged that the Coyotes seem to play very strong for a majority of the game and then falter somewhat in the late moments.

“That’s something we’ll have to address in terms of keep working on our conditioning so we can do a full 80 minutes,” he said.
