Cory Allensworth scored three goals and dished out three assists Tuesday night to lead the Hannibal boys soccer team to a 10-0 rout over Fulton.
Cory Allensworth found a way to best his former self.
The Hannibal senior forward scored three goals and dished out three assists Tuesday night to lead a 10-0 rout at North Central Missouri Conference rival Fulton.
Allensworth's second helper, which went to junior Adam Albright for a 3-0 advantage the 18th minute, broke his own program season record for assists that he previously set with 25 in 2015.
Through Tuesday, the standout has 27 assists this fall.
With the big night, Allensworth also eclipsed the Hannibal record for points in a season with 97, topping a mark that had been shared by Jack Baumann and JD Dodd.
"Cory's numbers this year are a combination of his ability and drive along with the great cast of players around him," Hannibal coach Eric Hill said. "We have a few guys scoring some big-time goals and assists this year and it is a direct result of the team working the ball so well and being unselfish on the field."
Allensworth got the scoring started for Hannibal (18-4, 11-0 NCMC) with an unassisted tally in the 8th minute. Colton Brown scored a minute later on an Allensworth assist to make it 2-0.
Albright scored his first of four goals in the 18th minute before Allensworth netted an unassisted goal in the 21st minute and scored off a Keaton Bartz assist four minutes later.
Brice Terrill assisted Albright's next goal in the 27th minute, and Caleb Ketsenburg netted an unassisted score right before halftime to put Hannibal up 7-0 at the break.
In the second half, Albright scored in the 53rd and 56th minutes before Collin Poage ended the night via the mercy rule with a goal assisted by Brown in the 70th minute.
Gabe Falconer recorded the shutout in goal for the Pirates.
Up next for Hannibal is a match at district foe Warrenton on Thursday and a road test at Marshall Saturday in the final NCMC match of the season.
