Boys Soccer: Another whitewash job

Jake Agnew 23 saves vs. Rochester John Marshall
The Tigers continued their stellar defensive play Thursday with a 3-0 road shutout of Rochester John Marshall.

The whitewash was the second straight for Farmington (2-1-1) which has allowed just one goal in 340 minutes of playing time this season.

Jared Wolt provided all of the offense with a hat trick and sophomore goalkeeper Jake Agnew continued to befuddle the opposition, stopping an incredible 23 shots. Agnew has turned away 50 of 51 shots in the four games.

"Most teams play two forwards but JM appeared to be playing three which increased their scoring opportunities," Farmington coach Julian Buss said. "The trade-off was that made them more vulnerable to attack at the other end."

Jared Wolt has scored 5 goals in the past two games
Wolt scored the only goal of the opening half on a header off a pass from Caleb Gochenour with just 1:06 to play before intermission.

The second came 10 minutes into the second period and was a carbon copy of the first, a header on a feed from Gochenour.

Hunter Meyers' crossing pass led to Wolt's final score with 6:36 remaining in regulation. Wolt finished his career night with 10 shots, six of them on net.

Buss credited his team's offensive success to the ability of of Meyers, Matt Dubois, Eric Stoeckman, Jeffrey Guiterrez and Jack Fogarty to clear the ball to midfield and on to the attackers.

"That resulted in the ability to put together high-quality scoring opportunities," he said.

The Tigers will look to make it three in a row Tuesday when they head host Rochester Century at Tiger Stadium.
