BRIDGEVIEW — The Moline boys' soccer team extended its season-opening winning streak to six matches after a 6-1 victory over Kenosha (Wis.) Indian Trail at Toyota Park, the home of Major League Soccer's Chicago Fire. This is the third time in as many seasons the Maroons have won six consecutive matches.

Cristian Castillo scored off an Alex Villanueva assist less than two minutes into the game. Jose Castillo recorded a hat trick, pushing his season total to 10 goals. Bryceson Alonzo and Christian Troche added goals. Angel Vargas had two assists.

"The kids had a good time," Moline coach Rick Sanchez said. "We came out early and put a goal in to settle us down. We played really well after that. We're doing a nice job as group."

Sanchez said every player who made the trip reached the field.
