The Grand County High School boys soccer team began its season with a 7-0 home win over region rival South Sevier on Thursday, March 9.

The Red Devils scored three goals in the first half and four more in the second to pick up the easy win. Senior goalkeeper Aaron Hawks picked up the shutout, although he admitted he didn’t have to do much work.

“Our defense pretty much kept the ball away from me the whole time, so I only had to touch the ball a few times during the game,” Hawks said.

Hawks’ freshman cousin, Jameson Hawks, scored two goals for the Red Devils, as did Deklynd Chant. Three other players each added one goal for Grand: Jose Tavares, Marco Cruz and Thomas Schmaedicke.

This week, the Red Devils are scheduled to play Richfield in a non-region contest at Moab on Tuesday, March 14, followed by a rematch against South Sevier at Monroe on Thursday, March 16.
