All-Europe striker Chris Davis scored three times Saturday as the defending European Division I champion Lakenheath boys soccer team blanked D-IV Brussels 5-0.
The goals made Davis four-for-Belgium — he scored his team’s only goal Friday as the Lancers tied the SHAPE Spartans of Division II 1-1 at SHAPE.
Pablo Martinez bagged SHAPE’s goal, his sixth in the unbeaten Spartans’ four games.
Davis’ output Saturday kept Lakenheath atop the Region I standings. The Lancers play at D-IV Menwith Hill this Saturday and close out their regular season May 10 by hosting fellow D-I member International School of Brussels on May 10. ISB is also unbeaten after an 11-0 romp Saturday at Menwith Hill.
