YUMA, Ariz---Sam Oliver delivered two second half assists as the #16 Arizona Western Matadors (5-0-0 overall) used a 5-0 shutout of the Mesa Thunderbirds (0-4-0 overall) to pick up win number five on the year Tuesday night at the Matador Soccer Field.
Romaric Berneron's goal in the 27th broke up a scoreless affair before Lachlan Brooks added goal number two just eleven minutes later.
But the Matadors would again seize on the second half momentum as Oliver delivered a beautiful cross into the box for Nozomu Kamei to make it 3-0 in the 63rd minute.
Oliver was right back at it four minutes later, delivering a low cross that Francois Geris-Rey touched past the keeper.
Aghiles Lamara added goal number five in the 76th minute to complete the scoring.
Atsuki Sato completed the clean sheet in net, needing just one save in 90 minutes.
