Eight different Dons score in home win
By Paul Lecker
MARSHFIELD — The Marshfield Columbus Catholic soccer team continued its early-season assault with a dominating 9-0 wipeout of Wausau Newman Catholic in a Mid-State Soccer Conference game Thursday at Griese Park.
The Dons scored four times in the first half and added three more goals in the first six minutes of the second half in the rout.
Charles Payant scored the Dons’ first goal 4:16 into the game and assisted on three others. Nadim Torbey scored twice, and six other players also scored for Columbus Catholic, which is now 7-0 overall and 3-0 in the MSSC. Newman drops to 0-3 and 0-2 in the conference.
The Dons controlled play throughout, outshooting Newman 15-1 on goal. The Cardinals’ only shot came midway through the second half as Columbus was able to keep them away with a stellar defensive effort.
“It was a good game tonight where we were able to get a lot of players in the mix and let them play some new positions,” Columbus Catholic coach Jeff Edwards said.
Tyler Fuerlinger headed in a shot off a corner kick from Evan Dieringer in the 19th minute, Torbey scored on a breakaway, and Zach Olson knocked in a goal off a throw-in from Payant to put the Dons up 4-0 at the half.
Nick Malovrh, Torbey, and Calvin Brown added goals in the first six minutes of the second half, and Ella Schultz and Alex Giles finished off the scoring for Columbus, which has posted a shutout in five of its seven victories.
“There has been a lot of variety in goals and assists,” Edwards said. “We don’t have that really outstanding player again. We just have a lot of players that can put it in the net. That makes it really difficult to defend us because anyone can score on any given night.”
