Parra remains hot, Owls soccer team prevails in AMC opener

Sophomore forward Joao Paulo Parra is off to an impressive start in the early stages of the 2011 season.

Parra tallied two goals and an assist Friday night as the William Woods University men’s soccer team opened American Midwest Conference play by overpowering newcomer Benedictine University-Springfield (Ill.) 5-0 at Firley Field.

Parra had a hand in the Owls’ first score when he logged his third assist of the season on sophomore forward Marcelo Carreiro’s goal in the 7th minute. Carreiro then reciprocated by assisting on Parra’s goal in the 9th minute.

On another quick turnaround in the 10th minute, Parra produced his second goal of the game — and fourth of the season — to put William Woods (2-0) in front 3-0. Freshman midfielder Luca Stroeter capped off the Owls’ first-half scoring when he added a goal in the 27th minute off another Carreiro assist.

Sophomore midfielder Christyan Busato was responsible for William Woods’ final goal, assisted by senior defender Brian Dougherty, in the 84th minute.

Junior Jeremy Hermann and sophomore Igor Dos Santos shared the shutout in goal for William Woods.
