Reichenberger, Rakhmonberdiev blast Scots past LaGrange 6-0

The Maryville College men's soccer program stormed past USA South rival LaGrange College with a 6-0 shutout victory on Saturday evening on MC's home pitch.

 

MC's Randy Reichenberger tallied the eventual game when Andrew Sullivan blasted a shot off the post allowing Reichenberger to gather and place a one-timer past the Panther keeper just before the 16th minute of the match.

 

Reichenberger added an insurance goal just before the 20th minute when Johnny Rakhmonberdiev directed a free kick that was saved by LaGrange keeper Cory Aycock. Randy once again trapped the deflection and deposited his 4th goal of the season.

 

Maryville took the 2-0 advantage to the half out-shooting LaGrange 9-2 before the intermission.

 

The Scots' offense came to life in the second period outshooting the Panthers 10-0 in the closing period.

 

Just after the 53rd minute, Johnny Rakhmonberdiev took a free-kick from about 20-yards out. He swiftly directed a left-footed blast past the keeper for his 5th goal of the season.

 

Only a minute later, Andrew Sullivan ripped a corner kick and Rakhmonberdiev put a header into the net for his 6th goal of the season.

 

Just 30-seconds later, MC keeper Ryan Jorgensen lofted a long kick that bounced high over the LaGrange keeper who came high out of the box and Bret Thomas found the back of the net for his 1st goal of the season while Jorgensen tallied his first career assist.

 

Maryville finished their scoring in the 66th minute when Milan Card made a pass from left-to-right across the box. Michael Quatrano collected the angled pass and guided it with his right foot past LaGrange keeper Bonner Brooks.

 

The Scots out-shot LaGrange 19-2 on the evening with 13 shots on goal. Cory Aycock was tagged for the loss in goal for the Panthers while recording five saves. MC's Ryan Jorgensen moved to 7-1 in net for the Scots after recording two saves, sharing the shutout in goal with fellow keepers Deonta Kensinger and Luke Wheat.

 

Maryville advances to 8-1 on the season and 5-0 in USA South play. LaGrange falls to 2-5-1 and 0-2-1 in league action.

 

The Scots will host non-conference foe Centre College on Sunday at 2:00. Just before kick-off, Maryville will receive the 2016-17 Men's President's Cup from USA South Conference Commissioner Tom Hart.
