Soccer: Scott blasts Claiborne for season’s first win

HUNTSVILLE  |  Scott High scored early and often against Claiborne here Friday, scoring its first win of the season with a 7-0 victory over the Bulldogs.

One night after Scott played well in a 1-1 tie against Northview Academy, the Highlanders continued to do the same things well in Friday's game against Claiborne.

Coach Eric Henry said after the game that his team continued to pass the ball well to set up scoring opportunities, and added that the short game is improving.

Claiborne was down several players due to various factors — Henry said that the Bulldogs will be better when his team faces them again later in the season — and that didn't help on a night when the shots were connecting for the Highlanders.

The shots hadn't connected 24 hours earlier; Scott had plenty of scoring opportunities but couldn't sneak one past the keeper in a draw against Northview Academy.

But in Friday's game, Scott High put three quick goals on the board, then called off the dogs as Henry experimented with different combinations and got his younger players valuable playing time.

Every player on the roster played in Friday's game, with most of them seeing the field in the first half. Once Scott backed off with a 3-0 lead less than midway through the first half, the Highlanders did not attempt to push the gas pedal again.
