WILLMAR - Willmar goalie Zachary Courtney got his first varsity start for the Cardinals boys soccer team but it was a lonely experience.
The Cardinals peppered 20 shots at Courtney’s contemporary, Hutchinson keeper Cameron Barrall while Courtney didn’t face any in Willmar’s 10-0 victory Saturday at the Kennedy School pitch.
“After a disappointing loss on Thursday to former section rival Mankato West, our players regrouped and discussed where they want this season to go,” said Willmar head coach Jeff Winter. “They worked through a dedicated practice on Friday and took their frustrations out on Hutchinson.”
David Gomez and Jesus Nevarez both scored two goals and also had two assists.
Ben Gonzalez, Ricarod Contreras, Gerson Maldonado, Jesse Lopez, Blake Hisken and Sakawe Shadoor also scored goals.
Lopez and Hisken scored their first varsity goals and Contreras scored his first goal since returning from a back injury.
The Cardinals improved to 4-2-1 and play host to Rocori at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Kennedy.
