LAURINBURG — The Richmond boys soccer team saw six of its players score at least one goal in a convincing victory over conference rival Scotland on Wednesday.

Seniors Carlos Alcocer and Victor Lucero each tallied two goals, while junior Nolan Allen, sophomore Lee Hadyen, senior Patrick Hamilton and senior Jonathan Tadlock scored one goal apiece in an 8-2 road win over the Fighting Scots.

“It was a physical game. We had probably 15 or more fouls, we had another player get a yellow card and two of my keepers got banged up,” head coach Bennie Howard said. “Thank God I carry four of them (keepers). All of them got to play tonight.”

Scotland was able to score first, but the Raiders “finally got it together” and knocked in three scores before the first half ended. The second half featured more scoring for Richmond, as it opened with a score and then answered the Scot’s second goal with three more to separate itself for good.

Alcocer, Hadyen, Tadlock, junior Jose Fonseca and sophomore Joey Nicholson all finished win one assist in the win.

Wednesday’s victory marked the first time since their three-game win streak to open the season that the Raiders won back-to-back games. They took down Seventy-First 5-1 earlier this week.

Richmond (7-4, 4-2 SAC) will be back in action Monday evening when it travels to Hoke County.
