Raiders stay perfect by routing Wiesbaden
The Kaiserslautern Raiders continued their undefeated stomp through DODEA-Europe boys soccer with a 5-1 defeat of the Wiesbaden Warriors on Saturday.
Peyton Timmermeyer and Austin James scored two goals apiece to lead the rolling Raiders, the emerging Division I title favorites. Kaiserslautern’s high-powered offense has produced five goals in every match this season save for a gritty 2-1 defeat of archrival Ramstein on March 30.
Pablo Zorrilla scored a goal and Nicholas Rousey distributed two assists for the Raiders, who visit Baumholder next weekend before wrapping up the regular season against visiting Vilseck on May 13. Steve Morrow scored off a Tyrese Harris assist for Wiesbaden.

Vilseck 6, Black Forest Academy 1: Saturday at Vilseck, Malachi Alston scored five goals to power theFalcons’ runaway win.
A stellar second-half showing by Vilseck blew open a game that was tied at a goal apiece at halftime. Ian Fox scored a goal and dished out two assists to aid the offense, while a sturdy Falcon defense required just three saves from keeper Timothy Simmons.
