Zack Wade, "The Dominator"

Zack Wade - "The Dominator"

Every so often in provincial soccer a great player comes along and he steals the show and it's exactly what soccer needs. There is a new kid now that's starting to dominate Senior Men's soccer. The guy that I am referring to is Number 22 of Holy Cross, Zack Wade. Last season, Zack was no slouch either. He was an All-Star, won the scoring title and was awarded MVP for his achievements. But now, in the 2010 season, he has taken his game still to another level, on the field , winning the hearts of all soccer enthusiasts. Suddenly people are saying and are taking note," this guy is for real."
One man show
In a game played earlier today in St.Lawrence, although, the Laurentians were missing several key starters from their lineup, they were looking to get revenge. Just a day earlier Holy Cross shutout the Laurentians on two beautiful second half goals from Scott Woodfine and Jake Warren. In the first half of the second match, the young Laurentian squad played rather well and had several good chances. As I watched the match I felt that their inability to finish was something that could come back to haunt them. I also realize that soccer games are won or lost in the mid-field. Actually, Zack Wade dominated mid-field in both contests. He ran the field and won the vast majority of the 50/50 battles. He brought Holy Cross even on the score sheet at the 57 minute mark, just 3 minutes after Boyd Roul had opened the score for the Laurentians. Then at the 81 minute mark, he scored his second marker of the contest, giving his team six points on the weekend and giving him a two goal lead on the provincial goal- scoring race. Zack Wade now has 6 goals in 6 games and is on par for a 20 plus goal season.
