WAUPUN — Hustisford/Dodgeland United finished 1-1 at the Central Wisconsin Christian tournament over the weekend.
HD United beat Kenosha Christian 4-2, then lost to St. Mary’s Springs 6-2 on Saturday.
Seth Hayden scored a hat trick and Nick Blome scored the other goal in the win over Kenosha Christian.
“After the second game, we switched our formation for the third game and inserted Ryan Knoke in the middle midfield, and it really made a huge difference in our control of the game, along with switching our defensive formation slightly which helped us to stay more organized and efficient on the defensive end as well,” HD United coach Scott Blome said.
“Midway through the game we were getting pretty beat up and tired but I was very proud of the heart and determination we showed to keep battling.
“We had a number of subs who had to come in and play critical minutes in the second half, including defender Evan Nicholls who filled in for an injured Anton Bednarski and our sweeper Blake Olson really showed a gutty performance in this game also.
“Our keeper Brady Held also had a very solid tournament with many key saves.
“I was really impressed with the way Dylan (Kilmartin) and Nick were feeding the ball to Seth all day long. Seth had a big game with three goals and one assist. Nick had one goal and two assists and Dylan ended the tournament with two assists.
“I was very happy we could capture our first win of the season and I am very excited to see how the season will progress for the United.”
