The Thomas Haney Thunder continue to rollover the opposition in the Grade 8/9 boys’ soccer playoffs.

The Thunder defeated the L.A. Matheson Mustangs 6-2 in Fraser Valley quarterfinal action on Nov. 9.

The Thunder trailed early before tying the score late in the first half.

The second half was a different story, with the Thunder erupting for five goals to bury any hopes the Mustangs had of an upset.

Marcus Tjernagel led the way with the hat-trick for the Thunder, while Ivica Fiegalstock had two goales and Kai Vockeroth had one.

The Thunder remain undefeated on the season.

Thunder head coach Glenn Urquhart said his team showed great poise after a tight first half.

“The defence played another solid game, minimizing the opposition’s chances.” said Urquhart. “Nick Stroud played excellent in goal, making a number of saves and only allowing two goals on point-blank shots.”

The win sets up a showdown at home against the Eugene Reimer Ravens on Monday, Nov. 16 at 3 p.m. The Ravens are also undefeated, going 5-0 in league play, then beating the Brookswood Bobcats 2-1 on Monday in the quarterfinals.
