Ten different players found the back of the net for The Rhinos in a decisive 10-1 victory at Salisbury. It was the type of complete, outstanding performance that The Big Red aspires to produce every time the squad steps onto the pitch. It was, in many ways, an unfortunate afternoon for a hard-working and resilient Salisbury squad, as they clashed with a Taft team that played perhaps its best game of the season. In the fourth minute, Charlie Shanks opened the scoring for the visitors when he stuffed home a rebound from a shot on target by Nur Adhikarie. Just a minute later, Adhikarie scored following a pass from Sammed Bawa. Before the halftime whistle, Sebastian Mañon and Jordan Miller each headed in a goal, and KK Baffour picked up the assists on both goals. In the second half, Salisbury showed plenty of determination, pulling a goal back after a rebound from a well struck free kick was drilled into the back of the net. However, The Rhinos added six more goals before the end of the match. Oury Diane and Ben Osset each recorded his first career Taft goal, while Diky Izmirlian and Peter Denious found their first goals of the season. Sammed Bawa and Benas Babenskas rounded out the scoring for Taft. Bawa, Baffour, Adhikarie, and Denious each came away with a pair of assists on the day. Chris Murphy and Brooks Reed both looked strong in goal for The Big Red. With a record of 11 wins and 1 loss, Taft will now prepare to host Kent on Parents’ Day.
