SPRINGFIELD, Mo–Boys high school soccer Thursday night, Central hosting Branson.
And this one was all Pirates – and all Carlton Epps.
Early first half, the junior takes on half the defense before burying one in the far corner.
Four minutes later, it’s Epps again.
Back corner again.
An early brace for the Branson forward and a 2-0 lead.
And just six minutes after that, Pirates corner.
They go short to Epps, and with good reason.
Again he goes for the back corner, this one upper 90.
A first half hat trick for Epps as Branson beats Central, 6-2.
