Evan Langston scored his first hat trick of the season for the Red Dragons of the boys’ seven-and-under division in AYSO Region 97 action.
Two of Langston’s goals came unassisted against the Big Red Fire Dragons. Devin Fairchild provided an assist. In the third quarter, Brandon Kincaid dribbled the ball across the field before scoring. Tim Badum scored with a shot from the right side just inside the box. In the final minutes, Justin McCoy, coming across the mouth of the goal from the right, amazed his coaches and parents after carefully placing the left foot shot out of the goalkeeper’s reach. It was Aedan Skellern who by all accounts was the player of the match with his total midfield presence and ability to control the movement of the Red Dragon offense. Defensively, the Red Dragons kept the opposition at midfield.
