HYDE PARK, Vt. — The Thetford Academy boys soccer team picked up its first win since the season opener in a 6-0 romp over host Lamoille on Wednesday.

Senior midfielder Jake Gilman opened the scoring on a 26th-minute penalty kick, and seven minutes later, freshman Xander Oshiniyi doubled the Panthers' lead on an assist from sophomore Uly Junker.

Thetford poured it on in the second half. Senior forward Aidan Keane scored twice, Gilman added his second of the game and Emmett Terry netted his first goal of the year. Assists belonged to Gilman, Henry Trage, Wyatt Polletta and Finn Linehan. Matt Vivian had the shutout in goal.

The Panthers (2-2-2) are at Montpelier on Friday.

"It was a close game throughout with plenty of shots from both teams," Woodstock coach Rob Stainton said. "The extra quality in finishing made the difference."

The Wasps are back in action Saturday at Mount Anthony.

All six of the Bears' games have been decided by one goal, and five have ended with a 1-0 score.

"I could not be more proud of this team," Essex said. "The seniors have been holding steady on defense while the offense comes into its own. We played two intense back-to-back games yesterday and today and the girls held their own. We have eight more games in the next 16 days, so assuming that they can all remain healthy, it will be fun to see how they progress."

Hanover is at John Stark on Friday.
