Potters defeat Edison
EAST LIVERPOOL – A Kosek Klayton hat trick helped lift East Liverpool to a 6-0 win over Edison in boys soccer on Thursday. Brian Meek added two goals, while C.J. Harris added another. The Potters attempted 17 shots.
“They got most their goals on quick attacks,” said Edison coach Aaron Richardson. “Their offense was explosive and they have some players that can shoot the ball very well. I felt that we missed a couple real good chances early on in the game that could have turned the momentum toward us. Our team has been improving greatly through these early season games.”
Josh Woika made 14 saves in goal for the Wildcats (2-2). Edison was able to get off seven shots.
“We played very well tonight, although the score doesn’t reflect it,” Richardson said. “We were winning the 50-50 balls and did a great job controlling the ball in the middle of the field.”
The Wildcats return to action Saturday at Oak Glen with a noon start.
