WILLMAR - Willmar soccer coach Jeff Winter notched his 100th win with the Cardinals' boys and girls programs in a 5-3 boys' team win over Brainerd on Thursday at the Kennedy pitch.

Sakawe Shadoor and Jesus Nevarez both scored twice and had two assists as the Cardinals improved to 8-0.

The Cardinals also are ranked second among Class A schools based on Minnesota.Scores' QRF rankings behind only former section rival Mankato West. St. Paul Prep, Blake and Rochester Lourdes round out Class A's top five.

"It's a big deal," Winter said, adding that it's the team's best start to a season. "I'm really excited about it."

Winter is in his 10th season at Willmar. He coached the girls team for three years and is in his seventh as boys coach.

On Thursday, Brainerd opened the scoring on Tanner Larson's goal in the seventh minute, but Shadoor tied the game two minutes later on as assist from Jesus Nevarez.

The Cardinal pair switched roles for a 2-1 lead in the 15th minute, and Nevarez converted a header for a goal on a corner kick from Francis Winter in the 22nd minute for a 3-1 lead at the half.

Brainerd again struck first to begin a half, with Aden Davis scoring on a penalty kick in the 52nd minute.

But Fernando Zavala scored on an assist from Shadoor just 29 seconds after Davis' score to put the Cardinals' lead back up to two goals.

Shadoor and Nevarez teamed up again in the 59th minute to essentially ice the game. Brainerd's Mason Malone capped the scoring with a goal in the 65th minute.

Willmar goes for a ninth-straight win at Hutchinson at 4:15 p.m. Saturday.
