Autoway Ford’s Miles Fischer watches as Mikey Ellsworth’s shot from the 18 gets past Keegan Murphy during Division I soccer action at the Center.

Michael Latimer scored three goals in the first eight minutes of the match to lead Autoway Ford to a 5-1 victory in Division I soccer action at the Anna Maria Community Oct. 1.

Sibella Glavan got things started for Autoway in the fourth minute when she made a nice defensive tackle on Tyler Yavalar. Glavan then made a nice pass to Latimer, who then carried the ball up the right side where he hit a nice shot that just got under a diving Keegan Murphy for a 1-0 Autoway lead.

Latimer’s second goal, which came in the sixth minute, was almost a carbon copy of his first goal. Glavan again made a nice defensive stop and a smart pass to Mikey Ellsworth. Ellsworth hit a nice pass ahead into space and Latimer split the defense and finished for a 2-0 lead.

Two minutes later, Autoway goalie Mikayla Kane hit a booming punt that bounced over the Wash defenders and Latimer outran them to the ball for a breakaway goal, giving Autoway Ford a 3-0 lead.

Autoway Ford almost added to its lead two minutes later when Miles Fischer gathered in a throwin and beat a Wash defender around the corner, but was denied when Murphy dove to his right to make a solid save.

Latimer had a hand on Autoway’s next goal when he smartly noticed the Wash defense cheating to the throw down the wing so he threw it to a wide-open Ellsworth. Ellsworth hit a blistering shot from the 18 that just kissed inside the near post for a 4-0 Autoway lead.

Late in the first half, Latimer took at throwin and out ran the defense for a break-away goal and an insurmountable 5-0 lead.

With Autoway using a more defensive-oriented lineup, Wash Construction started creating some offensive chances. Jacob Talucci gathered in an errant header by an Autoway defender and quickly dribbled into the box and fired a shot, but goalie Nico Calleja was there with the save.

Two minutes later Talucci got loose on a break-away up the middle, but he carried the ball a little too close to the goal and Calleja came off his line to smother the scoring chance.

Wash Construction continued to carry the play for most of the second half, but the Autoway defense continued to hold on until the 48th minute when Joplin Davis retrieved the Autoway goal kick and made a nice pass ahead to Tyler Yavalar, who carried in and beat Latimer in goal to pull to within 5-1.

Latimer was the obvious player of the game with four goals and one assist, but Autoway defenders Glavan, Sarah Quattroma, Julia Ware and Katie Rose Dell played well in front of goalie Kane.
