AMHERST - Thunderbirds swooping across soccer fields have proved very problematic for teams in the New Brunswick soccer league so far this season.

The Amherst Thunderbirds Under-12 competitive boys soccer team has earned a 4-0 record so far this season an have outscored their opponents 27-1.

Their last win came at the expense of Shediac, who they beat 7-0 on Tuesday night in Amherst.

Amherst was expecting a close battle against Shediac because they play indoors in the winter.

"Our team came out of the gates really strong and we had great goaltending," Rick Goodwin, who coaches the team with Duane Starratt, said.

Ethan Crossman scored three goals for the Thunderbirds, followed by one goal each by Bailey Embree, Curtis Langille, Liam Starratt and Blake Thompson.

The Amherst Under-12 boy's soccer team took a four -year hiatus before returning to action this year.

The team decided to join the New Brunswick League so they wouldn't have to travel as far for games as they would have to if they played in the Nova Scotia League.
