BLANCHESTER – The Blanchester boys soccer team defeated Clinton-Massie 5-2 Thursday in their home opener at Barbour Memorial Field.

In the second half, Coyle netted two goals before the Falcons broke through to make it 4-1, Ballinger said. The Massie goal came on a penalty kick.

The final Blanchester goal started with a throw-in by Brant Bandow to Colton Wilson, who had just subbed into the match and scored his first career varsity goal.
