Prep boys soccer: Community School dominates Canterbury in 1A regional quarterfinal

The Community School boys soccer team has had a pretty good formula working lately — let forward Scott Brooker score'em and the defense stop'em.

That was the blueprint the Seahawks used once again — with a whole bunch of Junior Martinez thrown in — as CSN defeated Canterbury School, 5-1, on Wednesday night at Community School.

Brooker, a senior from Brighton, England, netted two first-half goals against the Cougars to give Community a lead it would never relinquish. The scores brought Brooker's goal total to 11 in CSN's past five games.

Martinez added three second-half scores — the last coming from more than 30 yards away — to ice the match.

"It was a surprise," Martinez said of his long goal. "I saw the net open and I took it. We had a lot of opportunities tonight on offense. We kept at it and it finally came."

The win sets up a home regional semifinal against Evangelical Christian, which defeated First Baptist 4-2 on Wednesday. CSN beat the Sentinels twice during the season by scores of 5-1 and 4-0.

"We've lost just one game at home all season," said CSN coach Ed Bradley, whose team improved to 14-3. "Our defense played really well tonight."

The Seahawks defense, which had not allowed a goal in its last five outings, was superb once again, quelling any rally Canterbury tried to mount while permitting a meaningless second-half goal.

The Seahawks back line was anchored by seniors Tyler Canady, J.P. Lugo, Jacob Braun, and sophomore Michael Conroy.
