Lynx pick up split at Hudson tourney

HUDSON — After dropping a 3-1 decision to seventh-ranked (Class 2A) Hudson in its opener, the Webster City boys’ soccer team rebounded to blank West Delaware, 4-0, for its first victory of the season at Saturday’s Hudson tournament.

Thrust into the starting lineup at a forward position, Brett Olmstead ripped off a pair of goals in a span of three minutes in the second half against West Delaware. His first goal came off a rebound, the second courtesy of a Dylan Peck assist.

“(Olmstead) has always been a quality finisher and he seems to be in the right spot,” WCHS head coach Craig Signorin said after WCHS controlled play and owned an 11-2 shots on goal edge. “He’s an intelligent kid.”

Isaac Bernard got the Lynx (1-2) on the board in the 14th minute from a Peck assist. WCHS was also the recipient of an own goal late in the match.

Peck scored an early goal from Bernard against Hudson, but the Pirates reeled off the final three goals of the match to cruise. Hudson limited WCHS to just three shots on goal.

“They are the seventh-ranked team for a reason,” Signorin said. “They had some quality players and we just didn’t match up in certain areas.”
