Boys soccer: Jesuit routs Berkeley Prep 7-0

TAMPA — Jesuit scored six second-half goals and recorded its third consecutive shutout in a 7-0 win Saturday over visiting Berkeley Prep.

Brett Durrance and Christopher Conlon scored two goals each in the second half for the Tigers, who improved to 8-2 this season.

In the first half alone, Jesuit took 17 shots, several of which hit the crossbar. The Tigers' first goal came just 1 minute, 21 seconds into the game on a deflection. Joel Gutierrez's shot ricocheted off a Berkeley Prep defender and went past goalkeeper Leland Newhaller.

Despite playing the majority of the half in their own end, the injury-plagued Buccaneers (5-2) were able to survive the Tigers' initial offensive surge.

The second half, however, proved to be a different story.

Durrance scored at the 42:24 mark, starting a stretch in which the Tigers recorded four goals in a little more than seven minutes. Conlon added back-to-back goals three minutes apart, the first coming as he alertly knocked a loose ball away from goalkeeper Mikey Reintgen, and the second on a header set up by a deflection off Reintgen's hands.

Durrance, Chase Goodwin, and Joseph Metzger rounded out the scoring.

The Jesuit defense held the Buccaneers without any shots on goal for the game and few quality opportunities on the offensive end.

"I thought we played a solid first half," Jesuit coach Bob Bauman said. "We made our adjustments, and eventually we got the ball wide and had some good chances off crosses. We were able to finish them off, whereas in the first half we were missing the shots."

  2. Trevor Plouffe is DFA'd by Rays, Kittredge recalled for now


    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

  3. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

  5. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.
