South Webster 7, Clay 0
The South Webster Jeeps continue to roll in the 2016 soccer season, picking up another win Thursday evening, September 1, 2016, when they defeated the Clay Panthers 7-0.
“We came out well and things were clicking,” South Webster coach Corey Claxon said. “Alek (Blevins) scored a hat trick in the first nine minutes of the game. That was a first for me to see.”
To earn a hat trick, a player must score three goals in a single game. Such a feat is rare in a typical soccer match even more so when done in less than 10 minutes.
Claxon was also proud of the performance the rest of his team made in Thursday’s victory.
“The other guys had some nice goals as well and our defense held on for the shutout,” Claxon said.
