The Watauga High boy's soccer team waltzed its way to an easy win Wednesday night. The Pioneers
clobbered McDowell 8-1 in a non-conference game in Marion, N.C. The Pioneers have outscored their first two opponents 12-1 this season.
Tucker Chasteen was the hero Wednesday night as registered the first hat-trick of the season to pace the offense. Hunter Martin got things rolling with an unassisted goal at the eight-minute mark of the first half. Chasteen followed with his first tally of the night seven minutes later, and the rout was on.
WHS (2-0) led 4-0 at halftime. Martin and Justin Hall each had a goal and an assist. Canyon Mueller, Raul Fornoni, and Josh Lampkins each had a goal. Patrick Williamson, Logan Raichle, Jake Chasteen and Vincente Montelongo each had an assists.
The JV team (2-0) won its second game of the season by knocking off McDowell 2-0 Wednesday night. David King and Zach Valet scored the goals. King snapped a scoreless tie at the 65-minute mark of the first half. Sam Marlett picked up the assist. Valet added an insurance goal three minutes later off an assist by Powell Glidewell.
