The Glacier Wolfpack romped over the Missoula Big Sky Eagles 10-0 on Thursday in a Western AA soccer match at Glacier High School.

Glacier is 3-2-1 and has played four games in the past seven days.

Keepers John Pyron and Dylan Holly shared the shutout.

Senior midfielder Daniel Camp scored two goals in the first 10 minutes of the game.

Braden Nitschelm, also a senior midfielder, scored two unassisted goals in the second half to give Glacier a 6-0 lead.

Pyron scored on a penalty kick in the 76th minute.

“It was really great to see our entire roster get good minutes and our reserve players just continued to develop and get some really valuable varsity minutes,” Glacier coach Ryan Billiet said. “It’s crazy we’re already nearly halfway through the season. But time flies when you’re having fun.”

Glacier next hosts Flathead in a crosstown battle at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
