Sam Spirk scored five goals to lead Wilmington to a 7-1 win Thursday over Clinton-Massie in South Central Ohio League action at Alumni Field.

The Hurricane is now 3-0-1 on the year.

“This is a very young team that really hasn’t mastered bringing the ball to them,” said WHS coach Imad El-Macharrafie.

The coach said Wilmington tends to play the style of its opposition early in the match.

But in the fifth minute Spirk scored his first goal to put Wilmington up 1-0.

Though WHS dominated possession, it was unable to score again for another 14 minutes. Spirk made it 2-0 then just 82 seconds later made it 3-0 as the two teams went to the intermission.

Just 70 seconds into the second half, Spirk made it 4-0 with his fourth goal and the Hurricane was in total control.

In the 52nd minute, Spirk made it 5-0 then Avery Greenlees put WHS on top 6-0 with Spirk getting an assist.

Zach Hammonds helped the Falcons avoid the shutout with a goal in the 62nd minute.

Graham Vilvens rounded out the scoring for the Hurricane in the 72nd minute.

Nate Lakes contributed two assists and Wyatt Kessler had an assist. Charlie Schumacher had three assists.
