Cyclone boys win Winterset Soccer Tournament
WINTERSET (April 28) -- Harlan Community avenged a substate loss from last year and took home a nice trophy in the process Saturday afternoon, beating Winterset 4-1 and Creston 3-0 to win the championship of the Winterset Boys Soccer Tournament.
The host Huskies, ranked fifth in Class 2A, ended the Cyclones’ season last May with a 5-1 substate semifinal decision, but the rematch was all HCHS.
The 10th-ranked Cyclones scored twice in each half and responded to Winterset’s lone goal - which made it 2-1 - just 19 seconds later when Dylan Eshelman scored his second goal of the game on an assist from Andres Cavalieri with 19:37 remaining.
Michael Heithoff added an insurance goal with 1:28 left as HCHS (9-1) handed the Huskies their second straight defeat following a 6-0 start.
Creston defeated Oskaloosa in a PK shootout to win their first round match, setting up the championship.
HCHS once again scored early when Cole Kramer followed up a shot by Tanner Fink off the goalie to make it 1-0 barely two minutes into the game. The Cyclones would add two quick goals early in the second half to take control. Cavalieri tapped in a short goal off a corner kick (assisted by Tanner Fink) with 25:16 left and Drew Voge knocked home a left-footed 23-yard shot (Kyle Knudson assist) just 80 seconds later.
