Bryan Nolasco, Jerry Jones and Clark Joseph scored a pair of goals each as the Camden boys’ soccer team rolled to a 10-1 win over host Lower Richland in a Region 4-AAA match played in Hopkins on Tuesday.
The victory evened the Bulldogs’ overall record at 2-2 while they leveled their conference mark after two contests.
Nolasco got the ball rolling for Mark Chickering’s troops as he redirected a corner kick with a header into the back corner of the net at the seven minute mark for the game’s first goal. Eighteen minutes later, Cooper Ball scored gained control of a deflection from off the foot of an LR defender and deposited it into the goal from the 18-yard box.
The second goal, Chickering said, was the one which gave the Bulldogs the emotional lift which he and his team were looking for in this contest.
“We took control early but after the first goal, we sort of struggled finishing our scoring opportunities,” the first-year Bulldog boss said. “Once we got the second goal, the flood gates, sort of, opened up and it seemed like our guys found their confidence.” 
 Hunter Rankin put the Dogs up, 3-0, when he dribbled his way through two defenders and put a shot into the upper right corner at the 35-minute mark. The goal was Rankin’s first of the season. Jones closed the first half scoring with two minutes left before intermission when he took a feed from Joseph and sent a shot home from the left of the box.
 Camden continued to apply pressure on the hosts as, in the first three minutes of the second half, Joseph sent a pass to Nolasco, who broke loose on a breakaway goal for a 5-0 lead. Three minutes later, Joseph scored off a free kick received from Jones.
 Jones and Joseph hooked up, again, at the 62-minute mark. Jones finished the play after taking a pass from Joseph on the left wing and sending it past the keeper.
Moises Mata then got into the scoring act as he took a long throw in the middle of the field from Carlos Williams and fired home his first goal of the season. Williams figured in the next two CHS goals with the first coming when Clark Joseph gathered the rebound from a Williams shot and scored. Williams then added a goal of his own in the 76th minute as he took a pass from Joseph and blasted in his first career goal. The assist was the fourth of the match for Joseph who had a six-point game.
Richard White had a fairly easy night in goal for the Bulldogs as he was called on to make just three saves.
After a tough loss to A.C. Flora last Friday, Chickering was glad to see the way his team rebounded on Tuesday.
“Overall, the effort was much better than the A.C. Flora game. We worked hard on possessing the ball in practice and tightening up our defense. It seemed to pay off. We did a good job of possessing the ball and our defense played well for the most part. It wasn’t perfect, but, we needed a win like this. Hopefully, we can carry the momentum into Dreher (tonight.)”
Camden will host the Blue Devils tonight in a 7 p.m. start.
