With the help of sophomore midfielder Parker Fyfe, St. Edward’s men’s soccer team routed St. Mary’s by a score of 6-1 on Sept. 16 at Lewis-Chen Family Field.

Fyfe’s brace helped him receive Heartland Men’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week

Both the Hilltoppers and the Rattlers came into the game with an aggressive approach, but in the end, St. Mary’s was not able to match the energy St. Edward’s was able to bring.

Senior forward Pablo Covarrubias led the scoring with a goal off a free kick just outside of the 18-yard box. After going up 1-0 a mere eight minutes into the game, St. Edward’s floored the gas and refused to look back.

The highlight of the game came in the 16th minute when what seemed to be a lost opportunity was capitalized upon. Senior midfielder Julian Sanchez headed a ball towards the goal from just inside of the 18-yard box. After one bounce of the ball, Fyfe’s legs left the ground to scissor kick the ball into the back of the net as he was falling to his left.

By that point, it was 3-1 in favor of the Hilltoppers with junior forward Dylan Armstrong tacking on one more before the half off a play that developed from a poor goal kick by Rattler keeper Gerard Roebuck.

The second half was quiet for both teams for a majority of the time played. When the game clock displayed less than four minutes until full time, St. Edward’s exploded to add onto an already lopsided scoreboard.

This time around, Julian Sanchez finished what he tried earlier and scored his first goal of the season in the 87th minute and not even a full two minutes later, redshirt freshman forward Brandon Rangel scored his first career goal as well.
