Patterson rips Northern for city title

October 25, 2001|By Lem Satterfield

Patterson's top scorers, David Brunetti and Wilson Idiaquez usually have no problem putting the ball into the back of the net, and yesterday's 8-0 victory over Northern of Baltimore City offered a perfect example of that.

Idiaquez scored three times and assisted on a fourth goal, and Brunetti and Henry Velasquez scored twice as the Clippers captured their third Baltimore City boys soccer crown under fourth-year coach Troy Stevenson.

Goalie Roberto Conrad scored a goal as well after being replaced by Mario Zarro in the nets, as the Clippers improved to 12-3 on the year.

A bright spot for visiting Northern, which fell to 7-3, was goal keeper Rodden Shaun, who finished with 11 saves.

"It was a well-played game, and Northern played hard throughout the entire game," said Stevenson. "This is a nice team, and this could be our best chance since I've been here of doing well in the regionals. We're senior heavy, and hoping to have a run at the region title."

Patterson last reached the 4A state semfinals in 1997, losing to Bowie of Prince George's County.
