Quince Orchard Varsity Boys Soccer wins 4-1 in Season Opener At Sherwood (PHOTOS)

The Quince Orchard (QO) boys’ soccer team started the season with a 4-1 win over Sherwood.

Eli Holmstead scored the first goal of the season 30 minutes into the game, with a nice assist from Marco Capraro, after a long free kick into the box.  The second goal came 2 minutes into the second half, when Alex Martinez pounded the ball into the net from just inside the box on an assist from Holmstead.

Martinez also scored the third goal, unassisted, after dispossessing a defender and beating the goalkeeper in the box.

After Sherwood scored to bring the score to 3-1, Holmstead scored his second goal just before the end of the game, beating 2 defenders on the left side and then poking the ball through the goalkeeper’s legs.

Edwin Portillo assisted on the final goal.

QO controlled possession most of the game, but Sherwood pressed hard after scoring its goal, and QO goalkeeper Scott Drazen made two brilliant saves in the second half, once coming well off his line to stop a one-on-one opportunity for Sherwood.
