Joe Venazio had seven goals and four assists and Sebastian Musumeci added four goals and four assists as Carolina Forest beat Camden Military Academy 23-9 to win their first match as a South Carolina High School League-sanctioned squad.
“It was exciting,” Carolina Forest coach Adam Gross said. “After the 2 1/2-hour bus ride we got off kind of slow, but once we got the motor running we were fine. We played well today.”
While the Panthers had played three years as a club team, this was their first official win.
“It was good to get our first game,” Gross said. “Everyone was excited and had built-up energy. It was good to go out there and play.”
