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."

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.
