The Greenbrier boys soccer team started its spring break a little early on Friday.
With a little less than 2 minutes remaining, Greenbrier's Lateef Daly scored on a free kick to push the score to 10-0 and end the Friday evening contest against Newton County with a mercy-rule finish.
Throughout the game, Newton matched Greenbrier for aggression, but lacked the Wolfpack's cohesion. Greenbrier executed well on passes and kept the Rams running to catch up.
Almost immediately after the start of the play, Greenbrier's Stephen Maxwell scored after he maneuvered around a Newton fullback.
Kelechi Erondu scored the next two goals, both times by dribbling around the Newton keeper.
The remaining goals in the first half came from Jacob Bongiovi on a penalty kick, Bradley Hodge with a header, and a shot by Luis Thompson on an assist from Julian DeSandy.
In the second half, Greenbrier coach Chip Warren substituted in most of his junior varsity squad, which also dominated play.
Matt Shank, Harris Malone and Daly scored to continue the rout.
The Greenbrier girls also dominated and nearly ended their match against Newton with a mercy-rule finish, defeating the Rams 9-0.
The Wolfpack controlled the game right from the start, scoring eight of their nine goals in the first half.
Bay Daniel led the Wolfpack with four goals, and Alex Cohen had two.
Kelsey Waechter, Brittaney Borror and freshman Katie Belser also scored for the Wolfpack.
On April 14, in their first match after spring break, Greenbrier will take on Lakeside in home matches. The girls start at 5:30 p.m. and the boys start at 7:30 p.m.
