After a brutally tough schedule to open the season with two games against top-10 ranked Whitfield County teams, Cass High boys soccer finally got some relief Tuesday.
Facing Cedartown at home, the Colonels took a 6-1 victory.
With that score, one would expect Cass led the whole way, but Cedartown actually got on the board first less than six minutes into the game, and the Colonels didn’t pull away until a four-goal stretch in the final eight minutes.
With 22:09 left in the first half, Julio Medina scored the equalizer for the Colonels on an assist from Anthony Robledo.
Robledo then assisted the next goal as well, this time to Carlos Perez seven minutes into the second half to give Cass the lead for good.
Robledo then got a goal of his own with 7:46 left in the game off an assist from Jonathan Tong, part of a string of four goals in a six-and-a-half minute stretch. The goals came from Medina on a penalty kick, Robledo’s second goal of the game with 1:49 left and a Kevin Polo goal 33 seconds later.
At keeper, Isai Romero had 12 saves to help the cause.
Cass is now 1-2 on the year and next faces Sprayberry on the road Friday.
Cass girls 10, Cedartown 1
After starting the season 0-2, the Cass High girls soccer team took out its frustration on a helpless Cedartown squad Tuesday night.
Logan Vermaas scored three goals and Mattie Shook had two to lead the rout.
Brittney Ochoa, Leidi Torres, Macy Wright, Jocelyn Pineda and Lupita Pineda all had one apiece.
Lupita Pineda and Kinzie Tompkins each added two assists, and Olivia Flynn and Hannah Johnson each had one.
The Lady Colonels will return to action at Sprayberry on Friday.
