PREP NOTEBOOK: Raiders have several prolific goal scorers

GOSHEN — Scoring four goals in one high school boys soccer match doesn’t happen that often.

Recording four assists in one high school boys soccer contest is also not a common occurrence.

The NorthWood Panthers had players accomplish each one of the feats in a recent 7-0 win over Lakeland Christian.

Senior Carter Beebe scored four goals while sophomore Brayton Taylor tallied four assists.

“Getting that kind of production from one player is unusual, but from two in the same game. That is really unusual,” NorthWood coach Brad Duerksen said. “Between the two the four assists is probably more unique. Once you pass the ball things are out of your control.”

Beebe netted the first three goals of the game. He scored unassisted in the third minute, assisted by Taylor in the 18th and again assisted by Taylor on the 18th.

According to Duerksen scoring three straight goals like that is referred to as a natural hat trick.

Beebe added his fourth goal in the 54th minute again assisted by Taylor.

“Carter has been our starting stopper on defense for the past two seasons,” Duerksen said. “This is his first year at forward. We moved him there this summer, because he is quick.”

Taylor’s other assist came in the 54th minute when sophomore Dennyz Barahona scored.

For good measure Taylor added a goal of his own in the 55th assisted by senior Bennett Parker.

“Brayton is doing a nice job running things for us at midfield,” Duerksen said. “He is good at distributing the ball and is very unselfish in that aspect of his game. There are times when I wish he would look more to shoot rather than to pass to a teammate.”

Parker had the other Panther goal in the 39th minute assisted by Beebe.

Double duty

Northridge junior Hunter Hardin is having a very busy and at the same time successful fall season in two sports.

Hardin had two goals and an assist for the Raiders soccer team in a 6-1 win over Bethany Christian and three goals in a 5-0 win over NorthWood last week. In his “downtime” on Friday night he kicked four PATs and a 37-yard field goal for the Raiders football team in a 31-13 win over South Bend Riley.

Triple threats

Concord junior Mackenzi Hesselbart recorded a hat trick for the girls soccer team in an 8-1 win over Elkhart Christian Academy. She scored in the 4th minute assisted by junior Tori Moore, in the 7th assisted by sophomore Casey Buchanan and unassisted in the 68th.

Julio Solano of the Minutemen’s boys team achieved the same feat in as Concord blanked Elkhart Christian Academy last Thursday, 8-0.

Falcons’ Raber dual medalist

Fairfield’s Regina Raber was medalist at not one but two meets last week, carding a 44 in the Falcons’ win over Concord and Prairie Heights at Timber Ridge last Monday; and shooting a 41 on Thursday as Fairfield edged West Nole, 198-199 at South Shore in Syracuse.

  • Pyrenees please Nibali, Rogers in Tour Stage 16 BAGNERES-DE-LUCHON, France — The Pyrenees on Tuesday lived up to their reputation for causing ups and downs at the Tour de France: A French rider climbed in the standings, an American went down, and an Australian rebounding from an ordeal of doping suspicions won Stage 16 in a downhill breakaway. Riding in his 10th Tour, three-time world champion Michael Rogers of Australia won his first Tour stage behind savvy racing, well-paced riding and the absence of his Tinkoff-Saxo Bank leader Alberto Contador. The Spaniard crashed out in Stage 10, inadvertently freeing up Rogers to go after the stage win.
