Colbert records hat trick in Wickliffe win

Senior Nick Colbert recorded a hat trick and an assist in leading Wickliffe to a 5-0 non-conference win at Columbia on Saturday.

Colbert’s three-goals helped the Blue Devils rebound from a Chagrin Valley Conference loss to Independence earlier in the week.

“We played well in rebounding from our midweek loss to Independence,” said Wickliffe coach Chris Adkins. “We’re excited about the result today and look forward to improving as we move forward.”

Senior Nick Telisman added two goals and an assist in the win while classmate Jonny Abramczyk assisted on two goals. Sophomore Logan Meier pitched in with an assist and senior JT Brenneman recorded four saves in preserving a clean sheet for the Blue Devils.

Through two games, Colbert now leads the team with four goals and he also has two assists.

“Leaving the game Wednesday, a lot of our guys were disappointed with how we played,” Colbert said. “We knew today we needed to start fast and get a couple goals early. This would help some of our younger guys get some confidence and help us play better.”

That confidence showed up as the Blue Devils distributed the ball throughout the field.

“Today, our offense played a lot better than the first game,” Colbert said. “We possessed the ball a lot better. We knew going into the game we would have an advantage out wide. Mason Pugh and Jonny Abramczyk really played a nice game playing balls up the line all day for me to run on to.”

The Blue Devils improved to 1-1 on the year. They host Kirtland on Tuesday.
