On senior night, the Wayne Country Day boys’ soccer team came out on fire.

Three different players found the back of the net in a 6-0 triumph against Epiphany.

Max Young supplied three goals for the Chargers, while Thomas Gurley scored two goals. Braxton Rose contributed a goal.

Wayne Country Day logged its fourth shutout of the season and has outscored its opponents 28-3 this season.

“With it being senior night, there was a lot of energy from boys,” Wayne Country Day head coach Steve Ellis said. “After we scored that first goal, the flood gates kind opened up in the first half.”

Wayne Country Day struck midway through the first half.

Gurley’s chip shot caught Epiphany’s goalie off-guard, and the ball fell into the net for a 1-0 lead.

In the 34th minute, Rose punched in a goal. Second later, Young scored his first goal of the game, and in the blink of an eye, the Chargers held a 3-0 lead.

Young scored again in the 37th minute to help the Chargers build a four-goal advantage by intermission.

Gurley and Young each supplied a goal in the second half to give the Chargers a 6-0 lead.

Seniors Dylan Brown, Thomas Sumner, Tanner Willman, Cairnes Edmondson, Will Fickling, Cam Gerrard, Ben Stuber and Rahul Patel all played in their final home game.

Ellis said he was proud of seniors their accomplishments and hard work.

The Chargers (5-0) return to action on Friday at Greenfield.

“All of the seniors have been great, and I’m proud of them,” Ellis said.
