Silver Lake boys’ soccer coach Dan Correia saw a glaring hole in No. 15 Hingham’s defense Monday afternoon, and he had his team take full advantage.
The No. 5 Lakers used senior forward Paul Beatty’s four goals, including three in a six-minute span, to blow out the host Harbormen, 5-0.
Beatty netted his first goal about seven minutes in, and the score remained 1-0 until halftime. It was then, Correia said, that he had Silver Lake (10-0-1) adjust its plan of attack. He noticed Hingham (8-2-1) was not covering Beatty as closely as anticipated.
“We saw they were giving him more space than we thought they would,” Correia said. “We basically sent the ball to him and let him go to work.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
