Charleston blanks St. Anthony 2-0

CHARLESTON — Rhett Hallett can be happy about two things after Monday night.

The senior's insurance goal in the second half clinched a 2-0 win over St. Anthony at CHS Field with the incentive being the goal was his first this season.

“It's kind of a relief now,” said Hallett. “I have been on a dry streak as of late.”

Charleston finished with 25 shots on the game, but Hallett and Reece Bell were the only ones able to send one in the net.

“I'm a little frustrated, but I'm pleased with the win,” said coach Paul Stranz. “We had glimpses where we played very well. We pretty much controlled the flow of the game. I'm frustrated with the 2-0 result I think the boys understand that it was not satisfactory.”

St. Anthony nearly started the game off with a bang.

Benton Hakman dribbled down the field and was able to get a shot off. Charleston goalkeeper Drew Smith, blocked the first attempt with the body. The recoil went back to Hakman, but the second shot was blocked by the body of defender Isaac Dallas.

Reece Bell answered the call with his opportunity midway through the first half.

Starting with a corner kick, Taylor Garrett's shot was deflected off a group of Bulldog defenders. The follow up was hit in strong by the running sophomore about seven yards out.

“He crashed the ball,” said Stranz. “We have been playing with an intensity level with a lot more consistency these last few games.”

Hakman had another chance in the first half, but Smith was all over that shot too.

Hakman beat out two Charleston defenders on a breakaway to set up the one-on-one situation with Smith. The shot was batted down by the diving goalkeeper.

St. Anthony couldn't pull of any second chance magic as the second shot flew over the goal.

    He made it official last month, inking his letter of commitment to play for the NAIA school in Point Lookout, Mo.
