“Glut” is a seldom-used soccer term referring to one player scoring 5 goals in a game. Amar A of Fusion’s 2007 (U13) Boys Maroon accomplished this rare feat, scoring all of the team’s goals in a 5-1 victory over Tahuichi FC of Santa Rosa on Saturday, October 12 in Healdsburg. “You never know how energy levels are going to be on a long trip, but the boys were up for it,” said Coach Alec Taylor, as his team dominated ball possession from start to finish. In the second half, Fusion midfielders Mohamed Y, Hunter B and Trevor C, and a back line of Hayden H, Malik G, Zane K and Preston T, weathered an intense 10 minute stretch of direct attacks without allowing a goal. Coach Alec also cited the excellent play of GK Nico R, who “gave the team confidence to build patient attacks.”
