Select topples Ajax

by Jessica Lipsky

BUSC under-19 Select shut out visitors Ajax 7-0 on Oct. 26.

The Select started strong in the first half, scoring the only goal in the 19th minute. Collin Laporte, who played solidly throughout and had two assists, played a through ball to Drake Foote, who chipped the goal keeper for the only first half tally. However, the game was without flow and the lead was tenuous.

It all came together in the second half. Sebby Perry, back from an injury, was inserted at striker. High pressure on the Ajax defense led to a turnouver in the 48th minute and Perry took it himself to goal for the 2-0 lead. Zac Pinard, from the right back, made a run and Laporte played him into space perfectly; Pinard went to goal and finished and it was 3-0. Pinard returned favor, making a stead and run to the corner when he crossed to the back post. Perry was waiting for it and headed it home for the 4-0 lead. He finished his hat trick in the 65th minute from a chip lead over the defense by Jack Simmons and it was 5-0.

Foote again scored, and led Garrett Leone on a perfect diagonal run as Leone scored to make it the 7-0 final. Joey Repac led the strong back line, along with Pinard and Alex Williams, denying all runs, and helping goalie Sam Hanson to the clean sheet.

The Select next hit the road to take on Juventus in Redwood City.
