Clinton’s soccer team continued its stellar play on Tuesday with a 6-1 road win over East Duplin.

It didn’t take long for the Dark Horses to show that they were ready to roll, as Andrew Warren chipped in the game’s first goal just 32 seconds into the game.

Shortly after, Warren would score the game’s next goal to give CHS an early 2-0 lead.

The ‘Horses would just pile on in the first half, and took a 5-0 lead into the break after goals by Ivan Ponce, John Fox, and Ivan Palencia.

Spell Carr would score Clinton’s lone goal of the second half on a penalty kick at the 75 minute mark. Carr also had 3 assists to go along with his goal.

Gray Sutter had a solid outing in the net for the Dark Horses, as he saved 4 out of the 5 East Duplin shots on goal.

Clinton out-shot East Duplin 12-5 on the day.

Clinton’s assistant coach, Jamie Williams, was pleased with the performance Clinton had on Tuesday. “We really got off to a nice start with Andrew’s goal, just 32 seconds into the game. That was a great way to get us off and rolling,” he said. “This was a good win. Some of our guys have struggled in the past coming here to East Duplin, but they took care of business today, and we like what we saw.”

Clinton’s JV also won at East Duplin. They took the match, 3-1, which improves their overall record to 6-0.

The varsity Dark Horses are now 7-0-1 on the season, and are slated to travel to Hobbton on Thursday night at 6 p.m.
