How good is the Hopewell Valley soccer crew?

Up to now, the Bulldogs have handed each check with flying colours, because of quarterback Tim McKeown, broad receiver Justin Klotz, and a robust protection.

Saturday, on the street at Hamilton West, Hopewell Valley got here out firing from its first possession, and the Bulldogs by no means regarded again.

McKeown discovered Klotz with a 69-yard landing cross on their first play of the competition, after which discovered the sophomore broad receiver three extra instances within the second quarter, and on the primary two drives of the third, to steer Hopewell Valley to a dominant 54-19 victory.

McKeown had 303 yards passing on the day, 271 of them to Klotz, and the dynamic duo mixed for that 69-yard rating, plus on touchdowns of 17 yards, 20 yards, 5 yards, 18 yards, and 45 yards, because the Bulldogs made their case to be the highest West Jersey Soccer League crew within the Occasions space.

“It was a great game from our offensive line,” McKeown mentioned. “It all starts from them. They set the tone right away, and gave me a ton of time to do my thing right away. For me and Justin, it goes all the way back to Pop Warner: we have been doing this for a while. But we put in a lot of work over the winter and spring, when we meet up for an hour and throw.”

After the Bulldogs scored on their first possession, Hamilton West struck proper again with a 21-yard landing cross from Rob Chatham to Zeshan Dixon to even the rating at 6-6. From the tip of the primary quarter till 9 minutes left within the third quarter, Hopewell Valley outscored the hosts 34-0, and a lot of the harm got here from McKeown to Klotz: Derek Van Brunt had a two-yard speeding rating within the first minute of the second quarter for the opposite rating by the Bulldogs.

It was a record-breaking show from the quarterback to the sophomore receiver who’s shortly changing into the highest offensive weapon within the space.

“I give all the credit to the offensive line,” Klotz mentioned. “They did a good job protecting Timmy. It felt great out there, but we have to keep working for next week. We just have to keep doing our thing.”

May this Hopewell crew have an opportunity to go unbeaten by the common season? The Bulldogs are 3-0, and have an enormous contest Friday evening in opposition to Northern Burlington. Each groups can have playoff aspirations, and the Greyhounds is perhaps the final crew standing between the Bulldogs and perfection, at the very least till Notre Dame comes calling on October 21.

However that isn’t within the ideas of the Bulldogs gamers: they’re simply targeted on getting higher each week.

“We will get right on the film Sunday night watching Northern Burlington to start getting ready for it,” McKeown mentioned. “We are just taking it one game at a time as a team. It does not matter who we have as a team: it is one game at a time right now.”
