Ten minutes later, James H. ’22 scored one of his two goals off an assist from Henry G. ’22, followed by a sharp header from senior Leggett K. to take a 3-0 lead. Rye answered with their first goal of the day 30 minutes into the half before Henry G. and James H. each scored off assists from senior Kyle J., making it 5-1 at the half.
The boys from Rye opened the half with a quick goal before Kyle J. assisted freshman Andrew H. who answered with a bullseye to the corner from 25 yards out. Leading 6-2 freshman Theo M. found the goal for his first career goal with a header from a James H. assist. Captain Kyle J. who ended the game with 3 assists tallied a goal of his own with a strong left-footed shot from midfield. To close out the game, Rye scored their third goal before Ellis N. bookended the day with the closing goal, helping the Kodiaks to their first win of the season.
