FREEPORT — Ryan Farley scored two goals and five teammates added one apiece Wednesday as the Freeport High boys' soccer team shut out Wells 6-0 in a Western Maine Conference game.

The host Falcons recorded their highest goal total of the season while improving their record to 3-5-1, and the young Warriors fell to 0-8.

Asked if his team always enjoyed such balanced scoring, Falcons Coach Joe Heathco said, ''We haven't had that much (scoring), so yeah. The kids moved the ball pretty well today.''

Thomas Dorsey scored Freeport's first goal at 7:05 following a Hans Pope throw-in from the right side. Evan Hench, who had just entered the game for the throw, collected the ball from Pope and sent it up to Josh Weirich, who passed to Dorsey.

Dorsey got around his defender and ripped the ball inside the right post from 20 yards.

After Freeport goalie Sean Enking notched his first save of the game off a Samuel Lapointe shot, Pope scored to make it 2-0 at 16:11.

A Stephen O'Brien header from a cross by Hench went off the left post. That led to a Freeport corner kick, which Farley sent into the middle of the crease from the left, and O'Brien headed it home.

It was 3-0 just over a minute later when Christo Mulholland from his own end sent a through ball down the middle of the field. Farley took it off his chest on the dead run and carried it for 20 yards before filling the left side of the net.

Jack Dawe scored off a penalty kick to make it 4-0 with 10:12 left in the half, grounding the ball into the right side past a diving Alexander Kirol, the Wells goalie.

Three minutes later, Douglas Darling looked like he might score for Wells with a free kick from 20 yards on the left, but Enking timed his leap perfectly and punched the ball over the net.

Freeport sported a 17-3 advantage in shots, and with both sides substituting liberally, Jordan Cyr made it 5-0 after 10 minutes of the second half with a pretty goal.

Farley, who switched fields to replace Cyr on the right, carried the ball into the box, stopped suddenly to free himself from his defender, then lifted the ball just inside the top left corner of the net.

Farley closed the scoring with his second goal with 3:24 left, taking a pass from Weirich on the left, settling the ball, then ripping it into the far side.

Freeport outshot the Warriors 11-0 in the second half.
