Hawks Dominant in Second Win of Season

The College of Southern Maryland Hawks men's soccer team beat Patrick Henry College 6-0 on August 30.

Freshman Logan Miller netted two goals for CSM, bringing his season total to five. Freshmen Gabriel Ichniowski, Jawaun Butler, and Justin Miller and sophomore Stephen Larsen each added a goal.

Ichniowski was the first Hawk to score. In the 11th minute, he finished an assist from Justin Miller after they both created an offensive push through the Patrick Henry defense.

Larsen's goal came in the 20th minute when his shot deflected through Patrick Henry defenders and redirected past the goalie.

Butler's goal put CSM up 3-0 in the 26th minute. After a CSM shot was blocked, Patrick Henry defenders could not corral the loose ball, allowing Butler to control it and bang it into the back of the net.

Logan Miller's two goals came one minute apart, the first in the 39th minute with an assist from Justin Miller. Ichniowski assisted Logan's goal in the 40th minute when his pass from the right side came through the box to Logan, who was waiting at the front of the goal to knock it home.

The Hawks had a 5-0 lead going into halftime.

CSM head coach Zach Bowman said one of the big things his team did better this game compared to their last game was "our combination play and switching the field, and they did a lot better job of that today. Still needs some work, but it's getting better and we're progressing step by step. I'm happy that they're moving forward rather than backward."

CSM's final goal came in the 58th minute when Justin Miller finished a cross from Larsen from the right side of the field. Both Justin Miller and Larsen had two assists in this game.

"The big thing for them is staying on task and doing what we're asking them to do," Bowman said of his team. "As long as they're doing that, everything's fine. One game at a time mentality, so as long as they have that, they should be alright."
