Tuesday’s roundup: Troy tramples Southfield A&T

Troy took down visiting Southfield A&T, 6-0, with five second-half goals in a boys soccer Division 1 district matchup on Tuesday evening.

Southfield A&T (13-5) was coming into the matchup on a six-game winning streak, outscoring opponents 30-8 during that span.

Troy was playing well, too, winning three straight games Tuesday’s game.

“At this time of year, we’re not overlooking any opponents,” Troy head coach Jim Stachura said. “It’s do or die.”

After a quiet first half with just a Freddy Hubacker goal, Troy (9-4-7) went off in the second half, scoring five times.

“We missed some pretty easy opportunities to stretch the score in the first half,” Stachura said. “We just went (at halftime) and talked about making the game easier.”

Darius Feier led the way with two goals and an assist for Troy.

“(Darius) was really good today,” Stachura said. “We’ve been using him in a little bit of a different way. He’s real dynamic and athletic. It was difficult for (Southfield A&T) to defend him.”

Conner Kalmar and Joey Mason scored for Troy in the second half.

Troy will play at Birmingham Seaholm in a district semifinal on Thursday night. It defeated Seaholm, 1-0, last Thursday.

Beating Seaholm for the second time in a week won’t be easy.

“(Seaholm is) a tough team,” Stachura said of the upcoming matchup. “It’s going to be a tough one. We need to work on coming out with a little more of a focused mentality.”
