TALENT — Phoenix senior Bryson Flenner and freshman Victor Martinez knocked in two goals apiece while the defense posted its fifth Skyline Conference shutout with a 5-0 victory over Klamath Union on Monday at Hagler-James Park.
The first strike from the Pirates (8-0-1, 5-0-1 Skyline) came off the foot of Flenner from 40 yards out on a pass from Ty Clayton in the 25th minute. Five minutes later, Martinez put the Pirates up 2-0 with a score on an assist from Gustavo Pinon.
Flenner provided his second goal for the Pirates in the 55th minute on a set-up from Randy Rodriguez, and two minutes later, Flenner assisted on Martinez’s second tally of the contest.
The defense, led by Joe Navas, Cornelio Carrera-Flores and Johnny Esquivel, limited the Pelicans (0-9, 0-6) to just three shots in the contest, none of which posed a real threat.
The Pirates’ Elijah Leonis also scored in the 65th minute on a breakaway on a Cain Vargas assist.
