Grey puts on show for Mashpee
His five goals set Mashpee record
No one saw the surge coming.
In the first minute of the game, junior striker Romeo Grey found the net, then found it again in the second minute. From there, Mashpee kept up the scoring en route to a 7-2 victory over host Carver in boys’ soccer yesterday.
Grey set a school record, scoring five straight goals to surpass the mark of three by Nate Peterson last season.
“This was like his coming-out party,’’ said Mashpee coach Ed Furtek. “He’s a very humble kid. There was no ‘Hey, I’m great’ and he’s a very team-oriented guy.’’
Needless to say, the Falcons had the advantage. In the 27th minute, Grey recorded the hat trick for a 3-0 lead. He made it four consecutive goals early in the second half, with Scott Matoian earning one of his three assists.
Carver responded with a penalty kick to get on the board, 4-1, but Grey blasted in another goal in the 52d minute. That’s when Furtek subbed for Grey.
“At that point it was pretty much in hand and we didn’t want to rub anyone’s nose in it. The guys on the bench benefited,’’ Furtek said.
Jeff Lynch and Jake Van Gelder notched Mashpee’s final two goals, and Carver made it 7-2 with its second penalty kick with seven minutes left.
In the Falcons’ season opener last week, Grey had five shots in a 0-0 tie with Harwich.
When asked what was behind Grey’s big performance yesterday, Furtek responded, “If I knew, I’d be with the Revolution.’’
