It’s still early, but Richmond Hill High School may have sent a message of sorts to area boys’ soccer teams.
The unbeaten Wildcats ran their record to 3-0 with a 6-1 win Tuesday over Region 2A-AAAA rival Wayne County, sending the Yellow Jackets to their first loss of 2012.
“It was a very convincing win,” said RHHS coach Robbie Flanders. “Wayne is a tough team and one of the teams we compete against, along with Glynn, for the subregion’s top spot. Wayne is always a tough opponent.”
In all, the Wildcats outshot Wayne County 17-13 and scored four goals before the Yellow Jackets were able to get one past keeper Joel Heiser, who finished with eight saves.
Juwan Gaul paced Richmond Hill with two goals while Sean Marcolus, Drew Gregerson, Jonathan Hatala and Canon Rooker also scored goals. Rooker added two assists.
Also recording assists were Justin Carrillo, Sam Hulsey and Kenneth Adams.
Austin Miller picked up a save as well for the Wildcats, who improved to 2-0 in the subregion.
