Clinton High’s soccer team hosted back-to-back shut-outs this week, dominating Pender and East Bladen with identical scores of 9-0.

“We played extremely well this week. I was pleased with the way we moved the ball and executed on our set plays,” Dark Horse head coach Brad Spell said after the Wednesday East Bladen game.

In that game Connor Bass, Luis Aguilar, Adriel Coello each scored one goal, while Ivan Talencia, Eric Bradshaw, and Will Reagan scored 2 goals. Assisting on the goals were Spell Carr, Bradshaw, Luis Aguilar, Reagan, Jose Aguilar, and with 2 assists, Wyman Faison.

On Monday, the Dark Horses hosted the Patriots and Clinton scorers in that game were Carr, Reagan, Jose Aguilar, Mark Horne, and Coello each with one goal. Scoring 2 goals were Bass and Luis Aguilar.

“We really moved the ball well in that game. Our motto this year has been ‘to play for a standard and not just a score’ and I think we are doing that,” Spell added.

The Dark Horse record moves to 6-1-1 overall and 2-0 in the conference. They travel into Raider country next Monday to face their new conference rival Midway.
