Hahnville boys struggle in 5-0 loss to No. 6 ranked Dutchtown

The Dutchtown Griffins, the No. 6 ranked boys soccer team in the state, made quick work of the HHS Tigers, beating them 5-0 last Friday.

On a cold rainy night, the HHS boys started the second round of play in District 6. Dutchtown dominated play by keeping the ball on their offensive side of the field most of the night.

Hahnville had only three shots on goal to the Dutchtown Griffins’ 15 on goal in the first half. Four of those Dutchtown shots found the back of the net to give them a 4-0 lead at the break.

Precise passing and speed kept the Tigers on their heels.

Defenders Chris Berry, Austin Fremen, Joseph Morin, Chris Gaudet, Michael Aucoin, Forrest Muller and Mason Boyer constantly needed help from midfielders Lamar James, Hunter McDonald, Keith Gould, Daniel Binet, Reid Gauthreaux, Ryan Reyes, and Brodie Samaha.

Forwards Jonathan Schmaltz and Bryan Stewart were frustrated throughout the night by the Dutchtown defense.

In the second half, Dutchtown rotated and subbed in all of its players on the bench and still managed to score another goal.

The game ended 5-0 in favor of the Dutchtown Griffins, dropping the Tigers overall record to 2-10-4 and their district record to 1-5.

“Goalie Jatin Patel struggled tonight, but give Dutchtown credit, they’re a top ranked team in the district and state,” head coach Garet Baham said.

The Tiger are back in action on Jan. 22 when they host East St. John. It  will be “Senior Salute Night.”
