Rowan Kristan scored twice for Wiscasset/Boothbay but Hall-Dale was too much, winning 8-2 in Farmingdale Friday afternoon. The loss dropped the Wolverines’ class C soccer record to 5-8 in the Mountain Valley Conference. Hall-Dale is 11-0.

Alec Bryan, assisted by Matt Albert, put the Bulldogs on the scoreboard less than three minutes into the game. Bryan scored again, with Josh Nadeau on the assist at 29:54. Kristan’s goal with 21:54 remaining until halftime made it a 2-1 ballgame. Freshman Garrett Cossette picked up an assist on the score.

The Bulldogs netted two more goals, with Bryan and Nadeau combining again at 21:24 and Akita Warren scoring at 12:35 with Ian Stebbins credited with an assist. Two minutes later, Kristan with Bayly Gaughan-Carrasco on the assist made it 4-2. Hall-Dale scored twice more in the first half – Alec Bryan from Andrew Guiou with 4:12 left and Josh Nadeau from Ashton Abbot in the closing minute.

In the second half, Matt Albert booted in a direct kick at the 28:51 mark and Nadeau’s unassisted goal at 18:31 made it 8-2. “We had our opportunities, hitting the post several times in each half,” Coach Chris Cossette reported afterwards.

He started Caleb Gaberiele as goalie. He played the entire first half recording a dozen saves. Freshman L J Travis took over in the net and played the second half and finished with eight saves.

“Josh Gabriele and Bayly Carrasco-Carrasco played well in the backline and saw some playing time at outside midfield. They created some very good opportunities offensively for us,” the Wolverine coach added.  “Rowan (Kristan) found his stride scoring twice and worked well up front with Garrett (Cossette). Matt Chapman and Tim Chappelle held down the duties at the central midfield position.”

Wiscasset/Boothbay has a week off and then will close out the soccer season against Spruce Mountain. The game is at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15.
