BRUNSWICK — Unbeaten Lewiston continued its impressive march through its Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference boys’ soccer schedule Tuesday.

The Blue Devils thoroughly dominated Brunswick while rolling to a 5-0 victory in a Class A North match at Gardner Field.

Lewiston, the defending regional champion, has five shutouts while outscoring its first seven opponents, 49-3.

“We had to come strong and we did,” Lewiston Coach Mike McGraw said.

With the game less than four minutes old, the Devils (7-0) held a 2-0 lead.

“It was the first two quick (goals) that really did us in,” Brunswick Coach Mark Roma said. “We knew we had to absorb, bend don’t break, but we’re still sorting things out in the (defensive) back. We had some missed assignments.”

Most of the Lewiston players grew up playing soccer in Somalia, Kenya and the Congo Republic.

Said McGraw: “They’re well-skilled. They’re very fast. They’re fun to watch play and sometimes it’s fun to practice … They’re pretty heady players. They understand the game.”

Maslah Hassan opened the scoring after 32 seconds when he finished off a series of passes through the heart of the defense, beating goalie Josh Dorr one-on-one from 10 yards.

Less than three minutes later, Abdi Shariff placed a rising blast from deep in the right corner into the far corner.

The Devils took a 3-0 lead in the 23rd minute when Hassan rolled a crossing shot from inside the box inside the left post.

“It took us a while to get a grip,” Roma said, “and by the time we got a grip we were down 3-0.”

Abdulkarim Abdulle put in two goals in the second half. He also had two assists.

“We just couldn’t get out of our own way,” Roma said. “We just couldn’t get through the midfield. Then we started chasing the game so we didn’t play our game.”

Brunswick (5-2) managed to get the ball inside the penalty box a couple of times in the second half.

About three minutes in, Keenan Wetzel sent a close-in shot just inches wide.

With less than seven minutes left, Lewiston goalie Austin Wing stopped Wetzel’s shot for his only save.

“Brunswick didn’t back down,” McGraw said. “Their level of play increased and they did a nice job in the second half.”

Dorr did all he could to keep the Dragons in the game. He made 18 saves, some sensational.

Despite the lopsided score, McGraw said there’s room for improvement.

“We’ll take the result,” he said. “We played well (but) I think we can be a little bit more efficient.”

With the regular season at its halfway point, Roma said his team must deal with opponents of Lewiston’s caliber.

“We grew as a team but going forward there is no more room for moral victories,” he said. “We need to get a result in every single game the rest of the season.”
