Holley and Kendall both celebrated the Columbus Day holiday by scoring boys soccer victories today.

Holley exploded for five goals in the first 20 minutes in route to posting a 7-0 victory over visiting Rochester Charter Academy in a non league game this evening.

Avenging an earlier season 3-1 loss, Kendall defeated visiting Wheatland-Chili 4-3 this afternoon in a Genesee Region League boys soccer game.

Derek McArthur had 2 goals and 3 assists to spearhead Holley’s decisive game opening scoring burst.

McArthur opened the Hawks scoring with a goal nine minutes in off an assist from Andrew Cary. Then just four minutes later he assisted on a lightning quick pair of goals by Tyler Hill and Cary just 18 seconds apart.

John Mounts followed up with a goal three minutes later off an assist from McArthur who then tallied himself again on a direct kick to make it 5-0 at the 20 minute mark.

Hill and Cary each netted a goal in the second half to round out the Hawks scoring.

Holley, which is now 10-2-3 overall, closes out the regular season by hosting rival Kendall in a G-R Senior Night contrast on Wednesday.

Jake Adams scored the three goal hat-trick upping his season total to 25 to lead the way for Kendall.

The Eagles jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first half on goals by Adams and Michael Gardner, his fifth of the season, both off assists from Nate Waters.

Kendall maintained leads of 3-0 and 4-1 in the second half as Adams scored twice, the first coming on a penalty kick.

Kendall, which improves to 3-5-1 in the league and 7-6-1 overall will close out the regular season by visiting rival Holley on Wednesday and then hosting Batavia on Friday for Senior Night.

The loss drops W-C to 5-4, 8-6.


This past Saturday evening Holley’s Woodlands soccer field was renamed Sander Field At The Woodlands in honor of long time Holley Sports Boosters member Mike Sander. A Boosters member for 25 years, Sander was one of those instrumental in the development of the Woodlands soccer field which opened in 1991. This sign will hang in his honor at the field.
