Hutek scores five goals as Bucks dismantle Bobcats
Roscommon junior midfielder Logan Hutek scored five goals and had three assists in a 9-1 Buck soccer victory at Houghton Lake May 2. Hutek’s five goals tied a team record set by Jennifer Gaylor during the 2000 season.
Roscommon Coach John Sinnaeve said the Bucks were coming off a 4-0 loss to visiting Cheboygan the previous day, and the Houghton Lake game was the second game where they used a “new formation to try to generate more offense that would take advantage of their speed.” Janelle Gavin scored the first goal 12 minutes into the game on a pass from Hutek. Then, within the next four minutes, Hutek scored twice on passes by Kalen Church and Martha Vea.
Hutek then scored her second assist on a pass to Emma Kallio, who put the Bucks up 4-0 with a low, hard shot past Bobcat keeper Cozette Koupal. Hutek ended scoring for the half by completing her hat trick on a pass by freshman Kaeley Hahn, making the score 5-0 at halftime.
The Roscommon scoring continued in the second half, with Morgan Fluegel connecting off a lead pass by Gavin. Mady Walter then got one back for the Bobcats when she beat Roscommon keeper Hailey Eanes. At the 52nd minute, Hutek headed in a corner by Kallio for her fourth goal of the game, then, at the 65th minute, Hahn scored the first goal of her career on a pass by Hutek, making the score 8-1.
“I can’t say enough about how well our defense played tonight,” said Sinnaeve, “No matter who was in, they worked together as a team to keep the Bobcats from having a lot of scoring chances. We had two of our starters out with injuries so we had to share keeper duties with Danielle Doebler taking the first half and Hailey Eanes the second half.”
“We came out flat and Roscommon put us on our heels and kept us there,” said Houghton Lake Coach Darren Barnes, “When we started to gain any momentum they would make a play and seem to get a goal.”
He said the Bobcats played better in the second half, adding that “I give Roscommon a lot of credit. They came out and played a great game tonight.”
