The Archbold Blue Streaks Soccer Club Boys U-14 team traveled to Napoleon, Sunday, Oct. 21 to take on the Wildcats. The Streaks struck nine minutes into the match when winger Caleb Liechty sent a cross in from the left side that sweeper Nathaniel Rodriguez quickly redirected into the goal.

Midway through the second half Rodriguez scored again, this time with Jacob Ott assisting with a cross from the right. In the 56th minute, center midfielder David Bontrager took a shot that a defender blocked, but striker Jarett Lerma poked in the rebound for Archbold’s third goal. With two minutes remaining, Rodriguez scored again to complete his hat trick after dribbling up most of the field, producing the 4-0 final.

Bontrager and midfielder Micah Bernath controlled the middle of the field all day, setting the flow and tempo of the match. The Streaks’ defensive corps of Rodriguez, Alex Hurst, Blake Drewes, Ben Eggers, Nick Cassidy, and Nathan Wachtmann completed its first shutout of the season.
