Marshfield’s boys soccer team beat Astoria 5-1 on Saturday in a match played on a neutral pitch at Newport.

The Pirates trailed the Fishermen 1-0 at halftime, but dominated the final 40 minutes.

Pedro Casas scored the first goal on a free kick. He then had a crossing pass that Astoria’s goalkeeper caught, but the momentum pulled him across the goal line for an own goal.

Alberto Castillo scored the next two goals, both on breakaways, and Anthony Salinas headed in a corner kick for the final score.

The Pirates head to Phoenix on Wednesday for a nonleague match against Cascade Christian.
