HAMLIN, W.Va. — Joseph Payton seems to have one goal: make goals.

The St. Joseph Flyers’ senior scored five goals to lead a 6-3 win over the Lincoln County Panthers on Tuesday.

“Joseph Payton continues to find the back of the net and we are starting to move the ball around the field better,” said Flyers’ coach Mike Arrington.

“We still need to work some on our touches, but that’s to be expected at all levels, in my opinion.”

Payton scored two unassisted goals to put the Flyers up 2-0 in the first 10 minutes of the game.

He scored two more goals — one off an assist from Dylan Arrington — before the half and it was 4-0.

Lincoln County finally scored but Peyton Adkins answered with an unassisted goal for the Flyers and the lead was 5-1 at the break.

The Panthers cut the deficit to 5-3, but Payton got his fifth goal of the game in the closing minutes on an assisted free kick from Dylan Arrington.

“The guys really played well tonight. We went with a little different lineup and everyone was able to get some minutes,” said Arrington.

The Flyers play at Southeastern on Tuesday at 5:30 and host Lincoln County on Thursday at 6 p.m.
