The Havre de Grace boys soccer team made quick work of visiting Joppatowne Monday in Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference action to lead a full slate of games Monday in Harford County.
Also in the boys soccer win column Monday were Fallston, Patterson Mill, C. Milton Wright and Harford Tech.
In Havre de Grace, the Warriors (2-0) scored early and often to cruise past the Mariners (0-3), 16-0. The score was 11-0 at the half.
The lead was 4-0 less than four minutes into the game and junior Blake Clark and sophomore Hamed Diallo did most of the damage.
Clark opened the scoring just one minute and 12 seconds after the kickoff, with an assist from Hamed Diallo. The same combo worked again just 24 seconds later.
Diallo then added his own goal, before Clark picked up the hat trick with his third goal, assisted by senior co-captain Lev Logan.
The scoring continued at a rapid pace with Hamed Diallo adding his second goal, while Logan, Adam Diallo (2) and Paul Davis (3) added their own goals to close out the half.
“Our goal was to try to work the ball as best as we could, we had kids out there who have never come close to the goal,” Warriors coach Jeff Berthney said. “It’s hard for them to sit back and not score, but what we need to work on was ball control, playing across the field, back-and-forth, and I think they did that pretty well.”
The Warriors did plenty of ball control over the final 40 minutes, but they also added five more goals. Evan Hurst (two assists), Jared Rice (assist), Logan (two assists), Bugs Zakari (two assists) and Hamed Diallo scored a goal apiece. Hamed Diallo finished with the hat trick.
Sophomores Brady Walker and Cole Bravo also added an assist each for the Warriors.
Warriors’ senior goalie Keegan Cruzs had no shots attempted for him to save. Mariners’ keeper Jake Steinmiller made 13 saves.
“Overall, when it comes to a game like this, we just like work on things that we need to improve on,” Mariners coach Cameron Schnaack said. “Like I told them at halftime and during the water break, let’s not make this a waste of time by giving up or giving into it and getting frustrated; let’s take it and work on things.”

In an evenly matched game, both teams had multiple opportunities to take all three points but solid goalkeeping by Loyola’s Jordy Eckman and John Carroll’s Amir Smith kept the score level through two overtimes.
“We anticipated that they would be prepping for our 4-4-2 diamond formation, so we switched it up for this game to a 4-2-3-1 and it worked really well,” Patriots coach Jim Fendryk said. “I was proud of the effort that my guys put in today and we had a number of opportunities where we could’ve won the game.”
