Sam Steed and Brandon Davis provided the offense in Wayne Country Day's 3-0 shutout of Faith Christian-Rocky Mount on the Class1-A Coastal Plains Independent Conference boys' soccer scene Friday afternoon.
Steed tallied two goals and Davis contributed one as the Chargers improved to 10-3 overall and 3-2 against CPIC opposition.
"We starting to gel and I think our heart is finally in it," said WCDS coach Paul Estrada. "We've played two very important games back-to-back and have won them convincingly.
"I'm very proud of the team and happy that we are playing so well."
Keeper Ryan Ford stopped five Patriot shots and earned his second consecutive shutout in goal. WCDS owned a 15-11 edge in shots on goal in the 80-minute contest.
"(The) defense played outstanding," said Estrada. "Travis Davis, Jay Grissette and Jeff Franklin were standouts. Again, we had great play from the bench and stellar player from the entire team.
"Everyone is doing their part and starting to see their importance to the team."

Rosewood High finished the week 3-0 after a 6-0 shutout against Farmville Central at Branch Pope Field.
Goss Kendall collected the hat trick-plus-one (four goals) as the Eagles picked up their third consecutive win, and climbed to 6-3-1 overall.
