The Brookfield East boys soccer team crushed Sussex Hamilton Sept. 5 at home and then had a win and a tie in the Minnesota Quad on Friday and Saturday.
East won easily, 8-1, over the Chargers to improve its conference record to 2-1.
Alan Miranda opened the scoring with the first of his two goals at 4 minutes, 26 seconds when he took a cross from Matt Wilson and drilled it into the net.
A header by Michael Markusse on a free kick from Mark Glowacki at 28:02 made it 2-0 at intermission.
The Spartans quickly scored in the first 10 minutes of the second half when John Orgovan, Miranda (Josh Breider assist), a header by Wilson off a free kick by Orgovan and Ryan Toy (Trenton Daniels assists) got on the scoreboard for a 6-0 lead.
Daniels and David Loffredo (Ryan Dundun assist) closed out the scoring.
"I didn't mean for the boys to run up the score," East coach Herbie Dundun said. "We have been learning and working on crossing the ball and we saw results.
"It was good to see their strengths in a new strategy."
The Minnesota Quad has been a tradition as the teams alternate sites.
This year Hudson played Brookfield East on Friday and stayed in the homes of the Spartans' players.
Stillwater played Cedarburg Friday and stayed with the Bulldogs' players.
East defeated Hudson, 3-0, on two first-half goals by Toy and a goal by Wilson off a Toy corner kick.
The Spartans tied Stillwater on Saturday, as Orgovan had a solid goal with the assist from a perfectly-placed ball by Breider 15 minutes into the game. Stillwater tied the game at 73:40.
"On Friday, both teams played well and it was good to see that we are starting to change and finish the ball," Dundun said. "On Saturday, however, we played well the first half, but then they worked us in the second half.
"We gave them the momentum in the second half and we didn't complete what we set out to do.
"Both teams are good teams and it was good for us to prepare for our upcoming games."
