Greg Knight Sports Writer sports@plu The Feather River College men's soccer team ended the 2014 season last week as the Golden Eagles squad chased down and put the hammer down on the Butte Roadrunners at home on a 10-2 final score. The game saw a trio of players - Gavin Gillies, Brent Pedlow and Dominic Docherty - each score a brace in the Nov. 4 match. Before the start of action on the pitch, however, it was time to honor the sophomores of the 2014 team: Thomas Cowling, Edward Foy, Paul Mayes, Andrew Maynard, Tom Murphy, Jamie Reid, Dylan Saib, Reece Sinenci, Leon Thomas, Adam Williams and Pedlow were all recognized for their two years of service in the green and gold. And then, it was game time. For a splitsecond, at the beginning of:the game, no one was quite sure what to make of a Bufte goal in the second minute to give the Roadrunners a 1-0 lead. Minutes later, however, Gillies, a freshman from Perth, Australia, began to pick up the pace for the Golden Eagleswith two goals, in the ninth and 12th minutes. Pedlow assisted on each goal. From that point on it was very nearly a runaway train for the Golden Eagles as Pedlow followed up with the third scoring drive just three minutes later, with an assist from Cowling. For the remainder of the half, Mayes, Foy and Thomas would each find the back of the net, giving FRC a 6,1 lead at the break. "That first goal by Butte was kind Of scary," head coach Don Williams said. "We weren't expecting that, but Gavin, who is one of our freshman studs, came out and got the job done quick. That turned it around for US." Butte was able to score again in the 61st minute, but it was the last time the Roadrunners would chase down any points or, for the most part, see FRC keeper Jacob Price or Adam Williams except from a distance. "Our keepers got pretty lonely toward the end of the game, thanks to our defense and the way our men played," Williams added. "Our passing really made the difference." Leading 6-2 going into the last 45 minutes, the Golden Eagle squad next turned to Docherty for a round of points, with the freshman from Great Yarmouth, U.K., penciling in his brace in the See Men's Soccer, page 3C Feather River College's Gavin Gillies, far right, puts up a brilliant header during the 10-2 win over the Butte Roadrunners to close the 2014 season last week.
