Sale Salvage gets shutout win

After going winless in their first two matches of the season, Sale Salvage put a check in the win column in U9 Whitehorse Minor Soccer on Monday at the Canada Games Centre.

After going winless in their first two matches of the season, Sale Salvage put a check in the win column in U9 Whitehorse Minor Soccer on Monday at the Canada Games Centre.

After a scoreless first half, Sale Salvage scored three goals in the second half to defeat Energy North Ltd. by a score of 3-1.

Some tinkering with the lines appears to have done the trick for Sale Salvage (1-1-1).

“We switched up our lines a little bit because Sawyer (Adams) and William (Hueschwerlen) play really well together,” said Salvage head coach Dwayne Birkbeck.

“We’ve got a pretty good team this year, we just have to get them lined up into where they have to be and we’ll be good.”

“The other coach put his stronger line on against my weaker line, so he was pretty smart about that,” said Energy head coach Travis Banks.

Salvage’s Hueschwerlen got the ball rolling for his team.

Two minutes into the second half, Hueschwerlen broke through the Energy North defence, making it 1-0 on a short shot. Eight minutes later he put a series of shots on net, finally finding a gap on his second rebound to make it 2-0.

Three minutes later, teammate Adams picked the ball off an Energy North defender and put in quick shot.

“Sawyer is a spectacular goal-scorer,” said Birkbeck. “He’s got exceptional footwork. For his age he’s pretty darn good.”

Energy North (1-2-0) got on the board late in the match on a long shot from Connor Cozens, finding a corner from midfield.

Energy North was at their most dangerous following Salvages’ opening goal. They put numerous shots on net and even hit a couple posts.

“Most of the kids don’t like losing, so when they go down a goal they tend to pick it up and try to get the win,” said Banks.
