WAVERLY — Cedar Falls sliced through Waverly-Shell Rock’s defense and raced to an 8-2 win in a season-opening boys’ soccer matchup Saturday.

The Go-Hawks struck first, but Cedar Falls responded with four unanswered goals to take a 4-1 halftime lead.

“Giving up the first goal was tough, but we responded really well,” said Tigers head coach Spencer Steffy. “We got a lot of guys in to get some playing time and experience.

“It was good to come out with a win and put some goals in the back of the net.”
