  • Union 13 – Clinton 2… The Red Devil baseball team travelled to Broome HS yesterday to take on the Union County Yellow Jackets in the Hub City Classic… Now I don’t have much other than the score and that will not make Red Devil fans happy as the Yellow Jackets took a 13-2 win over the Red Devils… Coach Fortman said simply put the Red Devils had too many errors and issued too many walks… If I get more details on this game I will bring them to you later
  • Boys Soccer: Clinton 7 – Ninety Six 0… Catching up with the red Devil boys’ soccer team, back on Monday they traveled to Ninety Six to take on the Wildcats… Good news for Red Devil fans as they took a 7-0 win over the Wildcats… Parker Duncan had 3 goals for the Red Devils while JP Snelgrove had two and both Luke Mann and Patrick Nelson had a single goal each.
