ReMax Gulfstream Realty received four goals from Alex Rios and strong defensive games from Jenna Duvall, Garrett Chaplinsky and Austin Wash as they shut out LaPensee Plumbing 6-0 in Anna Maria Island Community Center soccer league Division I action on Oct. 7.
ReMax jumped out to an early 1-0 lead when Jordan Sebastiano got loose down the right side, but defender Katie Hunt managed to knock the ball over the end line for a ReMax corner kick. Sebastiano served the ball into the goal area, where it bounced off the goalie's hands to Rios. Rios settled the ball before turning and poking it through traffic and into the goal for an early - less than three minutes into the game - 1-0 lead.
One minute later, Sebastiano picked off a goal kick and dribbled untouched up the middle for a 2-0 lead.
LaPensee Plumbing had a chance to halve the score one minute later when Chris Callahan passed ahead to Sarah Howard, who ripped a shot from the 18, but the ReMax goalie made the save. The ball caromed out to Howard, whose followup shot went just wide of the goal.
Sebastiano and Rios hooked up again in the seventh minute when Sebastiano sent another service in from the right wing to Rios, who one-timed it into the back of the net for a 3-0 lead.
The game went kind of back and forth through the midfield until the 24th minute when ReMax earned a corner kick. Cory Wash hit a beautiful corner that found the head of Rios, who flicked it past the keeper for a 4-0 lead.
The second half saw more of the same from Sebastiano and Rios as Sebastiano again found Rios with a nice pass and Rios again finished for a 5-0 lead.
ReMax continued to pressure, but LaPensee defenders Zach Evans and Allison Lukitsch, along with keeper Jordan Hinton, kept the ReMax offense at bay for much of the second half.
ReMax closed the scoring out in the 41st minute on some nice passing. Justin Garcia threw the ball into Sebastiano. Sebastiano and Rios executed a give-and-go with Sebastiano ripping a rocket that was saved by Hinton. Garcia pounced on the loose ball and finished off the duck for a 6-0 win.
