FREWSBURG - Frewsburg's Derek Smith had an outstanding performance in leading the Bears (3-3, 4-4) to a 6-0 victory over Franklinville (0-6) in Division 3 boys soccer on Tuesday.
Smith was on fire, scoring four goals, beginning at the 10-minute mark off an assist by Brett Johnson and got his second tally five minutes later as Alex Elderkin assisted.
At the 21:06 mark, Smith completed the hat trick as Elderkin assisted again, followed by a goal from Jesse Ernewein, assisted by Smith, at 31:16. Smith then found the net for his fourth and final goal at 38:32 with Elderkin assisting again.

Frewsburg capped things off in the second half with a goal by Paul Mole as Elderkin assisted again, at 66 minutes.
Jordan Lyon had four saves in goal for the Bears.
MAYVILLE - Erik Olson tallied the game winner at the 72-minute mark to lead unbeaten Maple Grove (8-0-1, 6-0) past Chautauqua Lake, 1-0, in Division 3 soccer.
Olson's goal, his team-leading ninth of the season, was scored unassisted. The shot, taken from just inside the 18-yard box, tipped off Chautauqua Lake (2-6, 2-4) goaltender James Latimer's fingertips and into the upper right corner of the net.
Kyle Richardson made 10 saves in the victory to record his eighth shutout in nine games.
Latimer made 15 stops in defeat.
SWCS, OLEAN TIE
"Both teams had decent scoring chances, but no one could find the net today," said Southwestern boys soccer coach Mark Sleggs after the Trojans (3-0-1, 6-1-2) and Olean (3-0-1, 7-1-1) battled to a scoreless tie.
Strong defense was the key as the teams played 80 minutes in regulation and followed that with two 10-minute overtime periods with no shots going in.
The goaltending was outstanding as Olean's Alex Austin made nine saves and Eric Priester stopped seven shots on the net for the Trojans.
CARDS EDGE WARRIORS
SALAMANCA - Randolph and Salamanca put on a defensive show, but the Cardinals (8-1) were the only ones to find the net, posting a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Warriors (5-2).
Mathew Born scored the only goal of the game at the 10-minute mark in the first half, unassisted, and that was all Randolph would need, thanks to a solid performance in goal by Nick Carpenter, who had three saves.
Mackenzie Tucker had six saves in the loss for the Warriors.
