Homecoming was a huge success for one Cooperstown team on Friday. Just ask Little Falls.
The Hawkeyes won 10-0 in boys soccer behind three goals by Park Summers and two more from Jordan Manikas.
Lyman Townsend, Max Clinton, Christian Sepp, Yotse Dori and Tanner Clinton also scored for Cooperstown.
Jack Donnelly had two assists while Summers, Manikas and Townsend also had assists.
Unbelievably, it could have been much worse for the winless Mounties. Goalie Cole Douglas had six saves and nearly every one required an amazing play on his part.
Kevin Frevele was untested by Little Falls. He had no saves and Cooperstown was barely pressed on defense. By the second half, the Mounties had all 10 players back on their defense side in a futile attempt to stop the onslaught.
On Saturday, Cooperstown was almost as effective in the consolation game of the Chic Walshe Tournament in Davenport, winning 5-0 over Worcester. Manikas had the hat trick this time while Summers and Max Clinton each added a goal. Summer also had three assists.
Summers started the scoring by converted a give-and-go from Manikas to 1:31 into the game of the Chic Walshe Tournament at Davenport.
Manikas followed with three goals and Max Clinton scored another for Cooperstown.
Manikas and Summers earned all-tournament honors.
Sweeper David Zoltick helped preserve the shutout for goalie Kevin Frevele (three saves) with a header for a defensive save eight seconds before halftime.
“Kevin got caught out of the box, but David dropped into the goal and headed out a sure goal,” Cooperstown coach Frank Miosek said. “David is a solid defender with great game instincts.”
Cooperstown (5-3, 4-2) hosted Remsen yesterday after deadline and plays at Hamilton on Friday.
