Forward Alex Ertel scored a career-high four goals to power the Greenwich High School boys soccer team to a 7-0 win over visiting Harding Thursday in an FCIAC matchup.

Ertel was complemented offensively by Kevin Davis, Mateo Gowland and Marko Sango, who scored one goal apiece. The Cardinals (2-0-2) scored three goals the first nine minutes and never looked back.

"This was a good game to get a lot of guys a chance to go out and play," Greenwich coach Kurt Putnam said. "We worked on some things like moving and passing."

Patrick Santini and Jake Oe each had two assist for the victors.
