The Red Devils kept the ball on the offensive end of the field for much of the game, taking nearly two-dozen shots on goal.
Junior Andrew Hugentobler scored in the first half off an assist by fellow junior Koby Sobremesana, giving the Red Devils a 1-0 halftime lead. Sobremesana added a goal of his own in the second half and picked up another assist when sophomore Joseph Shumway scored Grand’s third goal.
The game marked Emery High School’s first-ever boys soccer contest, as the Spartans just added the sport this year.
“I was very pleased with how we played,” said GCHS head coach Mick Dunlavey. “We stuck to our game plan, which was lots of passing and lots of shooting. We played well together and with confidence and class. It was a good, clean game.”
GCHS freshman Aaron Hawks filled in for regular goalkeeper Layton Call, who was out of town on a school activity. Fellow freshman Kenyon Birdwell also contributed on defense.
This week, the Red Devils were scheduled to host North Sevier on Tuesday, March 11.
