H.S. BOYS SOCCER: Dunbar jumps out to early lead, rolls past Southern, 6-0, in regional opener

LEXINGTON — By Tyler Spanyer

On a chilly October evening in Lexington, Dunbar overwhelmed Madison Southern 6-0 to advance to the second round of the Region 11 Tournament.

For Southern it was the end of a great season highlighted by a 14-5 regular-season record and a runner-up finish in the 44th District Tournament. The Bulldogs, who were the 43rd District Tournament champions, are ranked No. 2 in the state and hold an impressive 20-3 record this season.

 Dunbar was most successful off of set pieces scoring two of its six goals off corner kicks.

The first goal was a ball that snuck in directly off of a corner kick from junior Riley Calhoun and that really deflated the Eagles. The second goal was a header from senior Nick DiMeo followed by another goal from Calhoun just one minute later.

Senior Guillermo Clemente scored the fourth Bulldogs goal with just three minutes to go in the first half. Clemente fired a shot in the upper corner from about 25 yards out.

“We played hard from the start, and that really helped us this evening,” Dunbar coach Tedd Bretz said.

Dunbar then got goals from freshman Eric Clemente and senior Shaquille Giuseppe added two more second half goals

“We came out flat, and we paid for it,” Southern coach James Ray said. “We let up those two early goals and that really deflated our spirits.”

Ray also commented on his 11 seniors.

“I just feel bad for them, they’ve all worked so hard to get to this point, and it’s hard to go out like this,” Ray said.
