Eagles fly past Chargers

The undefeated Prince Edward County High School boys’ soccer team handed host Central Lunenburg High School a 9-1 defeat on Monday evening.

The Eagles featured four different goal-scorers and were led by junior Alex Moller, who scored five times.

“He brought a lot of energy,” Prince Edward coach Devin Pierce said. “He brought the energy that our team lacked.”

Eagles junior Craig Burns added two goals, while senior Brady Atkins and sophomore Rafael Diaz scored one apiece.

The Chargers fell to 0-10 on the season, but their coach, Janet Johnson, saw several reasons to be encouraged by her players’ performance in the game.

“We haven’t won a game, but they’re not giving up, and I think their passing has improved, the defense has jelled better,” she said.

Central Lunenburg got its goal in the first half when junior Kamren Field broke through the Eagles defense to score.

Prince Edward (8-0) hosts Cumberland County High School on Tuesday, and the Chargers visit Buckingham County High School on Wednesday.
