TROTWOOD — The Troy boys soccer team may be in an easy part of its schedule right now.
But the Trojans are making sure to stay focused on the task at hand.
Tuesday night, that task was a road matchup at Trotwood, and the Trojans (5-0, 3-0 Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division) were more than up to the challenge, cruising to a 6-0 victory to remain undefeated on the season.
The matchup against the Rams (1-3-1, 0-3-1 GWOC American South) was the third and final game of a three-game road trip, and the Trojans still have yet to allow a goal this season, outscoring opponents 22-0. And their next three opponents — West Carrollton, Xenia and division foe Greenville — have a total of two wins between them.
Troy hosts winless West Carrollton Thursday.
BRANDT — Tyler Brueckman racked up five goals Tuesday night for Bethel, leading the Bees to a 7-1 victory over Greeneview.
Brueckman also added an assist for the Bees (4-0-1), Korry Hamlin had a goal and three assists, Daniel Ross had a goal and an assist and Cannon Dakin had an assist in the win. The Rams got their lone goal on a penalty kick.
“I thought tonight we played some great soccer early on,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “We made a great deal of runs and created some good space, and we had some good services into the box that were very dangerous. We played with good energy. We need now to continue this progression as we move forward.”
Bethel hosts Newton Thursday.
