The Rio Grande RedStorm mauled an overwhelmed Point Park squad by a score of 6-0 Sunday night. Luiz Filho netted three goals for his second consecutive hat trick, and Pau Rodriguez added another two goals.

Filho has played exemplary soccer for the Storm, and has been extremely efficient as of late. Six of Filho’s nine goals on the season have come in his last two matches.

For the second game in a row, the RedStorm controlled possession for a large majority of the game. Rio played around and within the penalty area all night, firing off 25 shots, compared to one for the opposing Pioneers.

Patricio Arce, who seems to have found footing with the RedStorm as of late, scored the other goal on the night. Arce has played stellar ball and figures to be a huge factor for Rio as they kick into the middle of Mid-South Conference play.

The third-ranked RedStorm moved to 7-1-1 with the victory, and are set to host the University of Pikeville Wednesday at 7 p.m.
