Clinton’s Ivan Ponce continues to play well, netting three goals in the Dark Horses’ 7-0 win over Bunn.


The Clinton Dark Horses men’s soccer team played a make-up game Tuesday against Bunn, rescheduled due to weather. The Horses would dominate the contest, winning 7-0, behind a hat trick from standout Ivan Ponce.

The Wildcats of Bunn couldn’t do much to stop Clinton from finding the net the entire game, as the Horses scored three goals in the first half. It got even worse for the Wildcats in the second half as the Horses went on to score four goals for the 7-0 victory.

“I thought we played very well; there was a lot selflessness all game and our communication was excellent,” said head coach Brad Spell. “We also played really well in the back and our ball movement was exceptional. The best part about it, though, was our guys were having a great time out there.”

With such a huge victory, contributions came from a host of Dark Horses. Ivan Ponce once again led the Horses with three goals and an assist, Jared Stephenson added two goal and an assist and Sam Holloman had the remaining two goals. Sammy Sutter also contributed 2 assists to the mix along with Logan Spell and Luis Gueveva who each had one assist.

“The most impressive part of the match or play of the game had to be the three goals from Ponce. That brings him up to 10 goals on the season and I’m hoping he keeps it up,” said Spell.

The Horses move to 4-2 as they look to stay victorious in their next game on Wednesday as they host a non-conference game against North Brunswick.
