CLINTON – The first place Warriors of Clinton high school's varsity boys soccer team handed the Marauders a loss on Sept. 28, when Sherburne-Earlville traveled to Clinton – losing 5-1.
S-E struggled to begin the game, as Clinton struck quickly for two scores in the first half early on.
This was followed by a Marauder score by Kyle Cole, drawing the game to a respectable 2-1 deficit with the first place Warriors. This short-lived momentum would come to an end with a S-E self inflicted goal, raising the deficit to 3-1 at the half.
“The Marauders hung tough as Kyle Cole cut the deficit with a goal fed by Owen Rodriguez making it 2 – 1,” explained S-E head coach Mike Rodriguez. 'Yet an S-E own goal before the half made it 3-1.”
Following the half, Clinton would tack on two more goals as the S-E offense stalled producing no more strikes in the contest.
Leading the Warriors in scoring was Joshua Houle with two goals, followed by Henry Garner with a goal and an assist, Nikesh Sharma with a goal, with Cody Jones of S-E tacking on a goal for Clinton. Clinton recorded 22 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, with their keeper Dominic Pascucci having two saves.
On the Sherburne-Earlville side Kyle Cole would record the lone goal off a pass from Owen Rodriguez, as S-E only managed three shots on goal, and one corner kick. In the loss S-E's goalkeeper shined with 18 saves in the game.
