Print Article

MIDDLETON, Wis. - Beloit Memorial's boys soccer team had all sorts of offense on a wet and cold Tuesday night against No. 4 Middleton.

Unfortunately for the Purple Knights, the host Cardinals had a little more.

Middleton took a 7-3 lead by scoring four unanswered goals and held on for a 7-5 Big Eight Conference victory.

"We had a great start to our game and gave the Cardinals all they could handle," Beloit head coach Brian Denu said.

Beloit jumped out to a 2-0 lead as Danny Salazar scored just 59 seconds into the contest and then added another goal off a Coco Castellanos assist five minutes later.

Middleton tied the game on goals by Derek Waleffe and Drake Vandermause before Castellanos put Beloit back in front 3-2 on an assist by Salazar at 23:44.

"Coco and Danny were nearly unstoppable in their forward position, but we couldn't overcome a host of silly fouls and defensive breakdowns against one of the better offenses in the state," Denu said.

Middleton got goals by Waleffe (29:14), Noah Pollard (36:01), Andrew Lund (51:38) and Vandermause (63:55) to go up 7-3. Salazar scored his third goal at 76:53 on another assist by Salazar and made it 7-5 at 78:33 on an assist by Bernardo Plascenia.

• NOTES: Middleton outshot Beloit 18-12 with 13 corner kicks to the Knights' six. The Knights got nine saves from David Almanza (5) and Dennis Aragon (4). Middleton's Ben Scher had three. ...The Knights visit Madison Memorial Thursday and go to Hartland Arrowhead on Friday.
