Hunter on target for Dolphins

Published: Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at 14:15 PM.

PANAMA CITY — Hunter Ginn’s ability to place the ball in the back of the net is the perfect fit for Mosley’s possession-centric system implemented by first-year coach Ryan Rogers.

Ginn scored a goal in each half to power the Dolphins to a 2-0 victory over Bay in a District 2-3A boys soccer game at Tommy Oliver Stadium on Tuesday night.

Mosley improved to 6-0-1 overall with the win. Bay slipped to 2-3-1, including 0-1-1 in district play. Mosley’s district record was unavailable.

Ginn, a junior, was able to corral a long pass from teammate Alex Burgans from midfield, and he used his right foot to nudge the ball past Bay goalkeeper Zachary Watson for a one-goal lead in the 12th minute.

“He just saw an open space and he looked up and saw the ball needed to be there,” Ginn said. “He sent the ball right where it needed to be.”

That lead held up through halftime, and Ginn doubled the margin in the 65th minute with a gorgeous strike from 25 yards out from the right side of the field after a pass from Banton Price. The ball sailed too high for Watson to turn it away, and the ball settled inside the left post in the side netting to provide the final margin.

“I couldn’t see the goalie,” Ginn said. “I just wanted to put the ball where he wasn’t.”
