The West Union Dragons boys soccer team fell to 0-2 on the season on Friday, Aug. 22 as they played host to a strong Lynchburg-Clay squad. The visiting Mustangs put double digit goals on the scoreboard, winning the Southern Hills Athletic Conference bout by a final count of 10-0.
Even with the lopsided score, West Union coach Kevin Hunter was pleased with his team’s effort.
“Although our effort was not reflected in the score, our West Union boys played a phenomenal game,” said Hunter. “They worked together as a team and executed some near perfect passing. Dodge Estle had 40+ saves as our keeper before he had to be taken off the field after an injury.”
“As a coach, I couldn’t be happier with the level of output I received from my 12 athletes against a stacked bench of 23 Mustangs.”
The Dragons were back in action on Wednesday night (Aug. 27) when they traveled across the Ohio River to face the St. Patrick Saints in non-league action. West Union will be back in SHAC play on Friday, Aug. 29 when they host Ripley.
