Wayne Country Day won its fourth game in a row on Monday afternoon.

The Chargers scored four goals in each half, which powered them to an 8-2 victory over Freedom Christian Academy.

Thomas Gurley scored a team-high four goals, Braxton Rose scored two goals, while Obi Okeke and Anthony Valentine each knocked in one goal.

It took a little bit of time for the Chargers to get going, but they scored their first goal in the 17th when Gurley slipped a shot past the FCA goalie.

Two minutes later, FCA’s Gabriel Kelley launched a shot that went over the Wayne Country Day goalie’s outstretched hands and landed in the back of the net.

However, Wayne Country Day wasted no time in responding, and in the 20th minute, Okeke’s goal gave the Chargers a 2-1 lead.

Rose scored his first goal in the 27th minute, while Gurley scored his second goal in the 29th minute as the Chargers built up a 4-1 lead at the end of the first half.

“We scored a minute after they scored, so that was a good response,” Wayne Country Day head coach Steve Ellis said. “They can pick it up and play when they want. It’s just trying to make sure the weaker opposition is treated the same as the stronger ones.”

Alexander Herwig’s goal three minutes into the second half cut the Charger’s lead down 4-2, but once again, the Chargers responded.

Gurley knocked in his third goal of the game in the 46th minute. Later in the 53rd minute, Valentine scored a goal off a long pass from Preston Barnes.

Then in the 55th minute, Gurley scored his fourth and final goal off a free kick. Rose would tack on another goal in the 67th minute as the Chargers cruised to victory.

Wayne Country Day (8-2 overall) hosts The Burlington School (3-5) on Wednesday.
