Freshman Josh Bellamy (High Wycombe, England/FAB Football Academy) got the scoring going in third minute on one of Scott Wilson’s (Ladybank, Scotland/Bell Baxter) three assists in the match. Hanson’s first tally came in the 24th minute to make it 2-0 before he scored 20 minutes later, assisted by his brother Blake Hanson (Superior, Wis./Superior Senior), just prior to halftime.
Perry scored in the 49th and 60th minutes, sandwiching a Phillip Eriksen (Skjetten, Norway/Lorenskog) marker in the 56th, that made it 5-0.
