WAVERLY, Ohio — Getting even and building some momentum all at the same time.
The Ohio Valley Christian soccer team completed its 2013 regular season Tuesday night by evening its overall record to .500 following a 6-0 victory over host Pike Christian Academy in a non-conference match in Pike County.
The Defenders (8-8-1) dominated the match from the outset, as the guests outshot the Lions by a whopping 35-3 overall margin. OVCS led 5-0 at the intermission and had five different players score a goal in the triumph.
Danny Reed started the scoring in the second minute after netting a pass from T.G. Miller for an early 1-0 cushion, then Miller netted a pass from Justin Beaver in the 12th minute for a 2-0 cushion.
Beaver joined in on the scoring in the 26th minute after netting a pass from Micah Sanders for a 3-nil edge, followed by an unassisted goal from Miller in the 38th minute for a 4-0 advantage.
Evan Bowman tacked on the final first half goal in the 39th minute after netting a pass from Miller, giving OVCS a sizable 5-0 lead at the break. Eric Blevins tacked on the sixth and final goal in the 71st minute after netting a pass from Marshall Hood.
Hood made three saves in net for the Defenders, who claimed a 4-1 overall edge in corner kicks.
Ohio Valley Christian returns to action Friday when it travels to Ohio Christian University for an OCSAA Final Four semifinal matchup against Mansfield Temple at 2 p.m.
