A full helping of senior star power helped the A-D-M boys’ soccer team to claim a 12-2 win Monday night over conference foe Carlisle on senior night in Adel.
All ten seniors played in the game and endured the majority of the 80 minutes played on A-D-M’s senior night, helping to ensure a first place finish within the Raccoon River Conference.
Like a broken record, the Tigers used dominant ball possession to win the game which manifested itself into a 7-0 lead merely 30 minutes into the game. A-D-M came out fast and furious when Davis Barton orchestrated a great pass to Dalton Hews who punched in his first varsity goal of the season just five minutes into the contest. At the ten minute mark, Davis Barton was again instrumental in a goal, assisting in Gage Fuller’s third goal of the season to make it an early 2-0 A-D-M lead.
Heriberto Ponce was the architect of goal number three with a pass to Davis Barton who connected on the goal. Eli Schwarzkopf, A-D-M’s leading scorer, arrived to the scoring party with the Tigers’ fourth goal of the evening. Gage Fuller struck again for the team’s fifth goal of the night shortly after goals two, three, and four. Goal number six came from a Davis Barton cut back pass to Dakota Kahler for the goal while goal number seven came from a Alec Goos pass to Eli Schwarzkopf for the header goal.
Carlisle did strike back to a small degree earning a goal just before the halftime break but still the Tigers led at the half 7-1.
Half number two started even quicker than the first after Alex Goos struck gold for his first varsity goal of the season just one minute into the second half. The senior wasn’t satisfied with one goal as he drove home his second of the season just 17 minutes later. Davis Barton set up the tenth goal of the night with a pass to Alec Goos who in turn set up a Dakota Kahler goal.
Kahler would tack on one more goal thanks to a Davis Barton assist for goal number eleven while goal number twelve came courtesy of a Dalton Hews pass to Eli Schwarzkopf for his 11th goal on the year.
The seventh ranked Tigers are now 12-3 on the season and will wrap up regular season play on Thursday, May 17 at home vs. Indianola.
