Red Devils debut with 11-0 blowout

CAMBRIDGE – St. Clairsville opened its boys soccer season on the road with a convincing 11-0 victory against the homestanding Bobcats.

Zach Oliver started the scoring with a header off a perfect corner kick from Bailey Balcar four minutes into the contest. Two minutes later Oliver found the back of the net again and the route was on.

The Red Devils scored eight times in the first 20 minutes before slowing the pace down and cruised to a 9-0 halftime lead.

Oliver finished the night with four goals and a pair of assists.

But he wasn’t the only Red Devils’ standout that played in the game. Sophomore Jordan Vincent ran past the Cambridge defenders to notch four goals and an assist of his own. Zach Rigby, Merrik Malin and Dan Gross each added goals to round out the scoring.

St. Clairsville goalkeeper, Devin Case, did well in his first start in goal to come away with a shutout. He was only called upon to make three saves. Jonathan Bartolo relieved Case with 15 minutes to go and secured the shutout with a diving save with three minutes to go on the best scoring opportunity Cambridge had all night.

The Red Devils are on the road again on Thursday when they travel to Indian Creek.
