The Dark Horses brought home a 6-2 win from Spartan country on Wednesday.

For the Dark Horses, Luis Aguilar scored 2 goals; Edwin Acosta had 1 goal; Eric Bradshaw scored 1 goal and 1 assist; Marcus Faison had 1 goal; Wyman Faison helped with 2 assist, and Adriel Coello had 1 assist.

Clinton head coach Brad Spell was happy to get a conference win.

“I was really pleased with the way our guys played tonight. We had a tough game on Monday night, I don’t think our heads were into it, but tonight we kept a positive attitude, and we moved the ball well. The guys heads where into it and the attitudes where right. As a coach it is always a pleasure to see all the guys play on the field, and I thought everyone did a good job,” Coach Spell stated.

On the other side of the field, Union’s Elias Gonzales scored 1 goal; and Chayanne Lopez scored 1 goal. Kenneth Santana was credited with 1 assist.

The Spartan’s head coach David Ameen was disappointed in the loss, which came on the heels of them losing 4-0 to Wallace on Monday.

“I thought it was a big improvement from Monday night,” Coach Ameen stated. “It was still the same score differential, but I think we improved in areas that we needed some improvement. We were able to move the ball a little bit quicker, and our communication is still not were it needs to be but we’re definitely working on it. We didn’t quit, and we tried to stay in the game.”

Union’s record drops to 4-2-1 overall and 2-2 in conference, whereas Clinton moves to 8-1-1 overall and 4-0 in conference. On Monday, the Spartans will travel to Pender and the Dark Horses will host West Bladen.
