Burton, Kilgore, and Arias Lead Cavs to 7-3 Victory In Finale Dy Clirisfiaii Malone I he men’s soeeer team niiisheci out the 1996 season witli a 7-3 thrasliing of Southern Wesleyan at the Montreal Soccer Complex in Black Mountain. Eric Burton’s second hat trick of the season and two goals apiece from Scott Kilgore and Alex Arias provided the scoring punch for the Cavaliers. Before the game, senior back Jason Guengerich, a four-year starter for the Cavaliers, was recognized before his final game in a Montreat uniform. Guengerich has been an integral part of the soccer program the past four seasons and his presence will be missed. Also recognized were departing exchange students Neil Summers and Stephen Kinney. Early on. Montreat had several scoring opportunities, but couldn’t put the ball past Southern Wesleyan goalie J.R. Owens, who made several great saves to stymie the Cavaliers. The Warriors took an early 2-0 lead, putting two tough shots past Cavalier goalie Brian Letendre. But soon afterwards, the momentum swung the opposite way. Burton put the Cavs on the board, scoring on a textbook breakaway set up by a great pass from Kerwin Francois, which cut the lead to 2-1. Five minutes later, the Cavaliers worked the ball inside near the Southern Wesleyan goal, and Kilgore hammered one home from five feet away to tie the score. Kilgore then gave the Cavs the lead several minutes later with a header out of Owens’ reach, his team-leading 19th of the season. The Cavs would hold on to the lead the rest of the game. Burton made it 4-2 with his ninth goal of the season right before halftime. Early in the second half, the Warriors cut it to 4-3, scoring on a header out of the reach of new Cavalier goalie Ehren Killian, which was set up by a possible missed offsides call on S.W. Killian would then turn into a wall, and the Warriors wouldn’t find the net again. The Cavaliers, however, were far from finished scoring. Arias scored his eighth goal of the season to make it 5-3. 1 hen, ten secotids later, the Bolivian native lit the lamp again with another blast. 11 is two goals turned the contest into a romp, and made it three multi-goal scorers for Montreat. Burton then finished his second hat trick of the season by taking a pass at the top of the box and nailing a bullet into the upper left corner of the goal, his tenth goal of the season, to finish the scoring at 7-3. Summers said, “We kicked their butt. After they got that 2-0 lead on us, I think we woke up and turned it on. I'his had to have been one of our best offensive performances of the season.” The Cavaliers lltiished the season at 6-11-1. Burton, Casey Short, and Francois all agree that this was a hard-luck season for them, and that they should have beaten every TVAC team but Bryan, but were done in by bad breaks. With all but three players scheduled to return in ‘97, the future should bode well for Cavalier soccer.
