On a day when no Indian Creek team was to be denied a win, the boys varsity soccer team did not disappoint against visiting West Nottingham, rolling to a 6-1 victory.

In the early minutes of the game, the Eagles looked a bit tentative in front of the hundreds attending Creekfest and the Homecoming games, but in the 18th minute of the game, Pierce Hurlbutt opened the scoring, with an assist from Mike McCormick, and the Creek would never look back.  Hurlbutt would strike again in the 22nd minute, taking a pass from freshman Jerrell Harrison and showing deft foot-skills, finally placing a blistering shot near-post.  That goal would prove the game winner, but Indian Creek was not done scoring.

Forward Saad Cheema scored off a nice feed from senior captain Phil Russell (25th minute) and six minutes later McCormick’s 30-yard blast found the upper ninety of the goal (asst. KC Pendergrast) in what would be the most memorable shot of the game.

Pendergrast added a PK goal in the sixth minute when senior Luke Burris was fouled hard in the box and Harrison would get on the score sheet again, scoring from a difficult angle with two minutes to play in the half following an Ulmer-Bostick throw-in.  At the half the scoreboard would read 6-0 Indian Creek.

Goalie John Leavitt (two saves) pitching a shutout for 37 minutes before leaving due to injury on a spectacular save.  Danny Pelavin would get three saves in relief. The Eagles outshot West Nottingham 18-8.
