LEROY\u00a0\u2014 Crossroads Charter Academy found the scoring touch in a hurry Thursday night and romped to an 8-1 Northern Michigan Soccer League (NMSL) victory over Pine River. Andy Duddles scored three of Crossroads\u2019 goals and was credited for a fourth that was actually booted in accidentally by a Pine River player. Josh Scott had two goals. The Cougars led 7-1 at halftime. \u201cIt was better than we\u2019ve seen based on communication and based on them working together as a team which makes sense,\u201d Crossroads coach Josh Yurick said. \u201cI was proud of my older guys getting an opportunity to mentor some of my younger players and the fact that they played with dignity and class.\u201d Brooks Angell and Joseph Balanda also scored for Crossroads. Balanda scored the only goal of the second half with 33:54 left in the game on a penalty kick. The winners had a 24-7 shots advantage. Duddles now has six goals this season. \u201cHe\u2019s a seasoned player, he gets his goals,\u201d Yurick said. \u201cI was proud of Josh Scott. We\u2019ve been working with him to find the back of the net. I\u2019m proud of those guys and also my senior goalkeeper Joseph Balanda, who was able to get one on the board.\u201d Pine River keepers, which included Douglas Connor and Colten Rawson in the half and Lucas Harris in the second, combined for eight saves. Crossroads led 4-0 in the first half when Cole Gingrich scored the Bucks\u2019 only goal of the game. Crossroads is 5-2 overall and 2-2 in the league. The Bucks are 0-5 overall and 0-3 in the league. \u201cI told the kids there\u2019s signs of greatness,\u201d Pine River coach Jenny Hoaglund said. \u201cThen there\u2019s signs they don\u2019t have a clue. We have to get it all to work together.\u201d Pine River is home with Houghton Lake Thursday.
