Gavin Ingbrigston led the shortstaff Orange gasng weith two goals and one assist. He opened the scoring on a deft  through ball from Cormac Gibson.

The action remained fast and furious with Orange opening a 3-1 lead. A scorching low shot by the Red Devils’ Connor Perrier caused a juicy rebound which Ingbrigston made good on for his second of the game.

With the Devils up 4-2, Gavin added the assist on a rocket indirect kick by Exavier Roberts.

James Petreny was the two-way player of the game for Orange, while  a solid defensive  partnership of Lucjan Attlesey and Mihaly Szabo kept  the game  from getting out of control.

In U10 girls soccer, the Candy Crushers brushed past the Blue Whales 4-1 Saturday at Creekside Park.

The Candy Crushers counted in the 14th minute when Jasmine Soon ate up a nummy pass from Aida Dempsey at midfield, danced in alone, and can-canned the ball home.

Before the break, the Blue Whales had three bang-up chances to breach the goal line, but Lauren Cunningham came up with a whale of save each time.

Early in the second half, Soon ran onto a ball from Sophie Challen and crossed to Sierra Allen, who walloped it into the Whale net.  Ten minutes later, Erica Lovelace put a bonbon into the box for Madison Vranesic, and she crushed the Orange side’s third goal.

Next, Cunningham and Soon relayed to Vranesic, who delivered another clinical finish.
