Huron United erased memories of a 2-1 loss last Monday to rival Walkerton with an 11-1 crushing of Orangeville Sunday afternoon on the road.

The win improved Huron United's record to 4-3-1 in South West District Men's Premier Soccer League regular season action. It also moved the Kincardine team to within two points of second place Fergus with a pair of games in hand.

Sunday afternoon in Orangeville belonged to Huron United right from the start. It took only two minutes for the visitors to find the back of the net. Ivo Ferreira scored his first of four goals on a set-up from Chad Freeman and Mat Dennis. Ferreira returned the favour six minutes later when he set up Freeman to make it 2-0. Ferreira's second goal came after a long throw from Keenan Soers, and then Ferreira set up Freeman for his second goal of the match.

Back-to-back goals from Gerrit Satosek made it 7-0. His markers were set up by Derek Andrew and Terron Hyre. Hyre then scored from Adam Winchester to give Huron United an 8-0 lead at the half.

The host Storm worked much harder in the second half with pride on the line. Orangeville had more possession time, but never really threatened Huron United.

Ferreira scored his third and fourth goals of the afternoon in quick succession around the 60-minute mark. Freeman set up both goals.

Satosek then completed his hat trick with help from Andrew to put Kincardine ahead by a touchdown, and a field goal. Andrew completed the Huron United scoring from Hyre to make it 11-0.

Aidan Calcutt's clean sheet was ruined in the dying minutes, however, as Orangeville scored on a low hard shot that found the bottom right hand corner of the net.

Ferreira’s four goal, two assist performance made him man of the match.

The loss left Orangeville in fifth place in the league standings with a record of 2-2-6.

"The 11-1 final score was indicative of a really solid performance," said Huron United coach Malcolm Godard.

"(We) will have to put in more performances like this one in the next week with two games in three days against the league leaders from Listowel."

The Listowel Ravens lead the Premier League table with a perfect 8-0 record. They have allowed just four goals through eight games and countered with 29 goals of their own.

As Godard alluded to, Huron United's next match will be Friday against Listowel. That game will be played in Mount Forest, however, as it is a League Cup final contest. Kick-off is scheduled for 8 p.m. under the lights.

The teams will then play a rematch on Sunday in Listowel. That will be the first regular season meeting between the clubs this season. That game is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
