The final score was 1-0.
“It was a good game, we fought hard and played hard,” said assistant coach Jamie Williams of the defensive battle Friday. “They (Swansboro) didn’t score till the 60th minute.”
Although the Dark Horses were unable to get a point on the board, Williams said a shot was fired at the buzzer, but it would travel high.
As for the season, Williams shared that the Dark Horses set a record high with 18 wins.
“Unfortunately, you do all this hard work, and you have to finish the season, but that’s the playoffs,” Williams explained.
Despite the loss, the Dark Horses left it on the field Friday and are geared towards setting a new record next season, said Williams.
The Dark Horses will be losing key players Field Palmer, Jose Gallegos and Jon Jacobs, but Williams said a strong JV team combined with entering middle school players will keep Clinton alive.
“We have a tough JV team; they were number two in the conference, and some of them will be moving up,” Williams concluded.
