Boys soccer: Jordan Landry scores 100th goal as Sunlake routs Ridgewood 7-1

LAND O'LAKES — Sunlake's Jordan Landry didn't believe he would score the 100th goal of his high school career until next week.

After scoring two within the first 15 minutes Thursday versus Ridgewood, Landry knew he might be able to do so before the night was over.

And the lanky senior did, scoring two goals in the second half to help the Seahawks cruise by the Rams 7-1 in the Sunlake Shootout at Seahawk Stadium.

"I've been waiting … since my freshman year to do this," said Landry, whose first goal came less than 30 seconds into the game.

"I'm so thrilled that I got this over with before any kind of injury occurred. I'm going to take the ball and get it signed by everyone. I couldn't have done this without the help of my team."

Sunlake controlled the game from the start, dominating in shots on goal (29-7) and limiting Ridgewood to only a couple of shots in the first half.

Landry scored his 100th goal in the 64th minute on a rocket launched from nearly 25 yards out past goalkeeper Corbyn Cochran (nine saves). Landry received a yellow card for excessive celebration after doing a cartwheel.

In the Shootout's first game, Wiregrass Ranch beat Gulf 5-1. Wiregrass got two goals from Torey Dean and one from Matt Kazansky, Andres Ceaser and Colton Leist.

In today's Shootout games, Wiregrass Ranch faces Ridgewood and Sunlake faces Gulf.
