The Dulaney High boys soccer team had too much of too many things, as the Lions put away visiting Kenwood, 5-0, in Timonium Friday.
Four players scored for Dulaney and senior forward Jordan Fields led the way with two goals.
The back-breaker as far as Kenwood coach Adam Mizell was concerned came from Dulaney junior midfielder Eugene Choe.
He scored in the 34th minute, beating goalie Travis Keith with a hard right-footed shot to the left corner from about 20 yards out to give the Lions a 3-0 lead.
“Once you dig a hole like that, it’s to climb out of it,” Mizell said. “And playing the way we did, it just wasn’t going to happen.”
Dulaney (3-3) jumped ahead, 2-0, in the first 11 minutes on goals by Fields and junior midfielder Phil Shubinsky.
Fields scored the first goal of the game. He drove a left-footed shot from 15 yards out to the left corner in the 6th minute.
Shubinsky boosted Dulaney’s margin to 2-0 a couple of minutes later.
“We had a good aggressive start to the game and finished our chances,” Dulaney coach Danny Skelton said. “I was very pleased. It has been a challenge finishing. We have been creating some really good chances. Unfortunately, we have been hitting the post, the goalie has been making the saves or we missed the target.”
Fields, a transfer from St. Paul’s wasn’t missing the goal.
He scored again only 48 seconds into the second half, redirecting Giorgio Gayleard’s corner kick past Keith (12 saves). Gayleard finished with three assists.
Fields now has six goals. He also scored two goals in a 3-0 season-opening victory over Aberdeen.
“He brings that finishing quality that every coach dream’s of have,” Skelton said of Fields, who has been aggressively recruited by Navy. “So I am certainly blessed in that respect. I have been coaching 10 years at the high school level and he is probably the most complete player I have coached.”
Malek Shedid finished the scoring in the 60th minute for the Lions, who outshot the 0-3 Bluebirds, 20-4.
“We lost our last two games,” said of the defeats to Sparrows Point and Patapsco. “We were sick of losing. So we decided to take the game by the horns as soon it started. We scored an early goal and we just took off from there. There was no stopping us.”
