Redmond leads Hagerstown to large win
Hagerstown, Md. - Sophomore, Nathan Redmond (Smithsburg, Md./Smithsburg) recorded 10 points from four goals and two assists in Tuesday night's win over Lord Fairfax.
HCC (1-1-0) came out controlling much of the match but it would take 25 mins for the Hawks to finally break down the Lion defense to start the goal scoring. Redmond would collect the ball in the Lord Fairfax end of the field and dribble down the right side. Redmond would enter the goal box and pick his head up before placing the ball calmly into the far post for the unassisted goal. Just five minutes later, Redmond would strike again when classmate, Leo Anjos (Recife, Brazil/Trinity Baptist) would slot the ball across the goal mouth where Redmond could just tap in the finish.
Five minutes later, Redmond would return the favor as he attached the backline of the Lions and found Anjos would one-touched the shot into the bottom right corner of the goal. HCC would round out the first half scoring in the 44th minute when sophomore, Eric Madrid (Germantown, Md./Northwest) sent a corner kick into teammate, Trey Jackson (Montgomery, Al./IMG Academy) where he would head the ball strongly into the goal.
Redmond would continue the scoring int the second half when freshman Andrew Owens (Smithsburg, Md./Smithsburg) picked off an errant pass in the midfield and played a long ball down the right side for Redmond to collect. After winning the challenge, Redmond confidently slotted the ball past the diving Lord Fairfax goalkeeper.
In the 64th minute, Owens would net his first collegiate goal when Redmond spotted Owens making a long run from the midfield. After beating the net minder to the ball, Owens would do a move around the diving keeper and slot the ball into the empty net. Redmond would end the day netting his fourth goal after hammering a 35 yard free kick past the Lord Fairfax goalie.
HCC sophomore, Tim Horning (Smithsburg, Md./Smithsburg) would start the match and earn the victory while second half replacements, Ian Hose (Clear Spring, Md./Clear Spring) and Grant Adams (Williamsport, Md./Williamsport) would split time to secure the shutout.
