Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Olmsted Field, Westbrook

Westbrook (2-0) defeated Biddeford (0-2) in its home opener yesterday at Olmsted Field, 5-2.

Varney Kai ('16) opened up the scoring for the Blue Blazes just one minute into the game, when he slotted home a flicked header from Kaleb Kent ('14). A short time later Kent added the Blue Blazes' second goal when he buried a through ball provided by central defender Mohammed Al Kinani ('15). Biddeford answered with a stunning 30-yard strike from Matt Nunez ('14) that found the upper 90.

The game was played at 2-1 about 20 minutes into the second half until Westbrook's Owen Gillis ('14) drilled a short-distance shot from an acute angle into the roof of the goal. After Biddeford's Garret Dube ('14) pushed a shot past Westbrook goalkeeper Austin Blake ('14) with about ten minutes remaining, Westbrook added insurance goals from Luther Williams ('15) on an assist from Gillis with about seven minutes remaining and on a penalty kick taken by Gillis with about three minutes left.

Westbrook goalkeeper Austin Blake made nine saves in the win, and Biddeford's Joshua McCauley made 15 saves.

With the win, Westbrook improves its 25-year record against Biddeford to 23-1 and it widened its goal differential in those twenty-four games to 128-25. Westbrook will travel to Windham on Thursday, September 12, and Biddeford hosts Scarborough on Thursday, September 12.
