Whether it's by one point or 10 points, a win is a win.That became crystal clear last night as the Amherst Thunderbirds under-12 boys soccer team defeated Sackville by a score of 10-0, and the Amherst Stingers under-12 girls soccer team beat Sackville 1-0 at the Church Street soccer pitch.Because of a scheduling misunderstanding the Thunderbirds started an hour later than they were supposed to, kicking off their game at 7 p.m., which was approximately the same time as the Stingers began their game.
Playing side by side the teams were able to watch each other play.
In the Thunderbirds 10-0 victory it was Zachary Brown leading the charge with three goals.
Scoring the remaining seven goals with one goal each were Ethan Crossman, Matthew Crowe, Damien Deegan, Kansas Hart, Matthew Kearley, Kurtis Langille and Liam Starratt.
The Stingers showed tenacity by edging out Sackville 1-0.
Stingers No. 25, Whitney Milner, scored the lone goal of the contest.
This is the first time in four years that Amherst has fielded an under-12 soccer team in both the boys and girls division and they are both having a successful season.
