Sharks soccer boy mercy Seabreeze after one half


The Ponte Vedra boys’ soccer team played host to the Seabreeze Sand Crabs from Dayton Beach and the Sharks were less than gracious hosts posting an 8-0 mercy win that ended after the first half was completed.

Seven different Sharks were in on the goal scoring as Ponte Vedra improved its unbeaten record to 10-0.

Jack Bingemann scored the Sharks’ first goal at the 31:22 minute mark then twenty seconds later Munir Adamo converted a Bingemann pass to put Ponte Vedra up by two.

After that, goals continued to come in bunches as Nick Kostrubsky and Matt Fishmann scored within three minutes of each other. Fishmann’s goal came on a deflection.

Then Johnny Stephens and Steven Sifontes each took advantage of some less than stellar play by the Sand Crab keeper. Stephens’ goal came of a long arcing shot that the goalie mishandled and Sifontes’ goal, another long range kick, found an open net as the visiting keeper was far out of position out in front of the cage.

Sifontes’ second goal came on a penalty kick after the keeper was flagged for dragging down a Shark in the box with a block in the back.

Donovin Crowley’s header from 25 yards out put Ponte Vedra up by 8 and when the first half buzzer sounded the Sharks had their tenth win of the season.

Shark keeper Brian Salzman did not have a very busy night. He was called on to make just two saves, one coming of the only corner kick of the game in the final minutes.

On Monday, the Sharks will travel to arch rival Nease for a 7:20 p.m. game.
