The Hobbton Wildcat soccer team got the best of Princeton Wednesday afternoon. The final was 6-0, Hobbton.

The Wildcats played a stellar first half scoring all their goals in the first.

“I started putting players in after we scored six to give them some playing time,” said Hobbton coach Jonathan Jacobs.

Princeton’s goalie made five or six spectacular saves throughout the course of the game. The fifth point slipped by him into the back corner of the net. The sixth point was a penalty kick.

Scoring for the Wildcats was spread out. Victor Aquille had two goals, David Molina, Jair Sanchez, Uriel Cruz and Erick Soza each had one goal each.

“We played really well,” said Jacobs. “The chances we got, we scored on. I started taking people out in the first half after we went up by four. We could have scored more; but, I want to get some of the other players in for the experience. We did well with them in also. I was pleased with the people coming off the bench as well as with our starters. It was an all around good performance. We are just one step closer to where we need to be for the playoffs.”

He praised Princeton’s goalie.

“Without his efforts the score would probably have been much higher,” Jacobs concluded.

The Wildcats are now 15-4-2 on the season and undefeated in conference play. They will host Neuse Charter Monday.
