BILLINGS – Christian Zygmond scored four goals, three in the first 20 minutes, as Billings Central shut out Whitefish Saturday, 7-0, in a State A quarterfinal at Wendy’s Field on the campus of Rocky Mountain College.
Central beat Whitefish by the same 7-0 scoreline back in September on the same field.
Zygmond started the scoring Saturday by putting in a rebound off a Braxton Ferraguti shot. Senior midfielder Josh Bundy then teed Zygmond up with two beautiful through balls to help the senior striker complete his first half hat trick.
Caleb Wall chipped in two goals and an assist.
Central will now head on the road to two-time defending State A champion Corvallis for the semifinal round. Corvallis has won the last two meetings – 3-2 at home on Sept. 3, and 2-1 in Billings in last year’s State A semis.
The Blue Devils are undefeated on the season at 13-0-0. Central comes in at 11-2-0.
