Glacier boys score 5 in second half, empty Helena 6-0



Joey Paolini scored two goals and assisted another, and Glacier exploded for five goals in 13 minutes at the end of the second half to beat Helena 6-0 in men’s soccer on Saturday.

Liam Ells, Sullivan Coggins, Brighton Kelsey and Mason Fauth all scored for Wolfpack (2-0) who outscored Helena 15-2 but only opened the game until Paolini’s first goal in the 66th minute.

“A big credit to Helena High,” said Glaciers coach Ryan Billiet. “They were very organized defensively. It was different from yesterday’s game against Capital, and it really challenged our guys to get creative to get some scoring chances.

“We had a lot of composure and a lot of intensity on the bench, and things finally opened up for us. Once we got that second goal, the game really opened up.

John Pyron was in the goal for the shutout. Jake Ritzdorf had two assists. The match counted 40 faults, 21 by Helena (1-1).

“Defensively we didn’t leave a lot of opportunities,” said Billiet. “It’s not just our baseline, it’s all over the pitch. The guys stay tight and keep the ball at the right time.
