Jeff Wolons scored five goals during an 8-0 rout of Poquoson to break Jamestown’s single-season scoring record
Wolons’ record of 37 goals surpasses Patrick Kelly, who scored 36 goals for Jamestown in the 2012 season.
Wolons, a Virginia Tech soccer commit, scored two goals in the first half to help give Jamestown a 5-0 halftime lead.
Well aware of the record within reach, Wolons was determined to break the single-season scoring record.
With his fifth goal of the game, Wolons simultaneously tallied his 37th goal this season, setting a new standard for the Eagles, and ended the game due to a slaughter rule.
His teammates got into the action, with six players recording assists for Jamestown in the win. Additionally, Duncan McDevitt, Davis Wood and Dan Kelly each added goals for the Eagles.
The Eagles enter their final regular season game of the season, a Tuesday home match against Northampton, as the hottest team in the Bay Rivers District. They have won 10 consecutive games dating back to March 31, when they recorded their only regular-season defeat against Grafton.
