The Mohawk Trail Regional boys soccer team was nearly unstoppable early against Duggan Academy on Monday.

The Warriors scored seven goals in the first 22 minutes, leading to a 9-1 blowout in an independent match played in Buckland.

Keeman Ramirez opened the scoring for the Warriors, scoring in both the third and fifth minute.

Rosco Palmer added to the lead in the 10th minute, followed by a score one minute later off the leg of Jaime Colemenjaro.

Tyler Dubreuil got in on the scoring action in the 18th minute before Oscar Cassin added a goal in the 21st minute and Weston DenOuden found the back of the net in the 22nd minute.

“They’re a really young team,” Mohawk coach Nick Brown said of Duggan. “They had a hard time keeping up with our quick attack. We have a lot of speed up front.”

In the second half, Cassin scored in the 56th minute and starting goalie Reuben Bassett scored in the 61st minute to complete the high-scoring game.

Ramirez picked up three assists to go along with the two goals, with Brown taking notice of the strides he has made offensively as the season’s played out.

“He had a really good outing,” Brown said. “He’s starting to find his place right now. Last game he had two goals, so he’s been really finding that area and his position and making his shots and passes count.”

Holyoke 1, Frontier Regional 0 – The Red Hawks fell to the Purple Knights in a Moriarty Division game played in Holyoke.

The lone Purple Knight goal came in the third minute off the foot of Marcus Tenesaca, as neither team found the back of the net for the remainder of the 77 minutes.

Nick Jarvis made six saves for the Red Hawks.

“We weren’t ready to play,” Red Hawk coach Evan Horton said. “We don’t show up in the beginning of games, get scored on in the first 10 minutes and it’s over from there. That’s been our season.”
