BRANDT — The Bethel boys soccer team hosted West Carrollton on Senior Night Monday, routing the Pirates 7-0 to improve to 11-2 on the season.

“It was Senior Night tonight at the Hive, and the boys came out early and controlled the match,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “We had very good passing early, especially on the wings, and kept them under constant pressure.

“This is third game in a row that we had more than 60 percent of our shots on goal, which means we are generating some good scoring opportunities.”

Aiden Flomerfelt took advantage of those opportunities, scoring three goals and adding an assist to lead the Bees. Jaiden Hogge added two goals, Cannon Dakin had a goal and three assists, Nick Schmidt scored a goal, Jace Houck had two assists and Casey Keesee had one assist.

“This is something we have been working on all season staying up and positive. I am very proud of my girls for how they played in the first two sets, the third was a little disappointing and they know that.”
