The Westview boys soccer team got the defense of its 1A state championship off to a flying start earlier this week by crushing its first two foes in the Central Noble sectional.
Monday night in Albion, the Warriors got two goals each from Brady Yoder, Mohamed Aamer and Teague Misner in a 10-1 rout of the host Cougars. Aidan Kohlheim, Braden Kauffman, Bodie Martin and Braden Rogers each scored single tallies for Westview, which led 7-0 at halftime.
In addition to his two markers, Misner assisted on four of the other Warrior goals. Carson Brown collected two helpers, while Yoder, Brandt Norberg, Ahmed Alamari and Nico Cochs each had one.
Vito Cevese and Jack Massey split up the keeper duties for the Warriors with Massey picking up one save.
Westview returned to Albion Wednesday night to face Lakewood Park. Powered by Misner’s hattrick and two goals from Aamer, the Warriors rolled to an 8-0 triumph over the Panthers.
Misner netted the first of his three markers just four minutes into the match. Three minutes later, Aamer was fouled in the penalty area, setting up a penalty kick. But instead of taking the try himself, designated shooter Bodie Martin slipped a short pass to Aamer who drilled a shot past the Lakewood netminder.
Martin would notch his own goal in the 12th minute when his corner kick eluded Panther keeper Cameron Hindle. Brown would connect on a 20-yard shot soon after to up the difference to 4-0.
Misner tallied his other two goals following the intermission. Aamer and Cochs each found the net once in the second half.
Martin topped the assist chart with two. Garnering one assist apiece were Kauffman, Aamer, Alamari and Cochs.
Cevese was credited with two saves.
Westview, now 16-1-1, will meet 10-5-1 Blackhawk Christian in the sectional championship match this Saturday in Albion at 7 p.m. The Braves cruised past Prairie Heights, 9-0 in the first semifinal tilt Wednesday.
Noah Wike tallied four of the Blackhawk goals in the win over the Panthers. Max Rumple had two markers with J.D. Middlebusher, Kyle Robinson and Elliot Zimmerman all logging one. Zimmerman also had two assists.
Sam Zolman, Elijah Zolman and Conner Keeslar split up the Heights goaltending duties. Sam Zolman recorded five saves, Elijah Zolman seven and Keeslar three.
