Soccer provincials: Digby senior boys move on to gold medal game


DIGBY – The Digby Regional High School senior boys have moved on to the gold medal game at Division 3 soccer provincials.

The Mariners beat the South Colchester Wolves 4-2 in their semi-final match this morning in Brookfield.

Digby coach Oliver Janson says the Mariners dominated the first 20 minutes of their game.

Ryan Doucette hit the South Colchester crossbar early in the game but it was Noah Thomas who opened the scoring, tucking his free kick from the top of the box into the bottom right corner of the Wolves’ net.

Doucette did get his name on the score sheet early though, taking a sweet pass inside the 18 from Nathan Janson and knocking it deep in the net to make it 2-0 Digby.

The Mariners kept the Wolves pretty much pinned in their own end at the start of the game, but when South Colchester eventually broke out, one of their forwards took a long hard shot that Digby goalie Dawson Acker directed towards the corner. A lone Wolf sweeping in from the wing picked off that loose ball and poked it in to make it 2-1.

From the following kick off, Janson and Doucette rushed the South Colchester net with quick dribbling and short passes.

Janson ended that run with a goal: 3-1 Digby at the half.

Ten minutes into the second half, Benedikt Woelki took a cross from Thomas and spun the ball around the South Colchester keeper to make it 4-1.

South Colchester made it 4-2 with about 20 minutes left by outracing the Digby defence to a long bouncing lead pass.

Not long after that, the referee handed a red card to a South Colchester player, pretty much ending any chance for South Colchester to tie it up.

In the other semi, New Germany Saints beat Bridgetown 7-4.

The Digby Mariners will play the Saints in the gold medal game at noon tomorrow, Nov. 7 in South Colchester.
