Last season there was a three-way tie in for the Tri-County Royal Division boys’ soccer championship among Clearview, Cumberland and Williamstown. This year Clearview seems intent on not sharing the title with anybody.
The Pioneers looked impressive in today’s 2-1 win over Delsea that increased their ecord to 7-0-1 overall and 5-0-1 in the Royal Division.
The only blemish for Clearview has been a scoreless tie with Kingsway.
Clearview isn’t very flashy, but one of the more fundamentally sound teams. Senior Rich Henry scored both goals. Henry is one of those opportunistic players who seems to be in the right place at the right time.
Midfielder Kevin Calloway showed why he is considered among the better juniors in South Jersey.
Things should remain tight in the Royal, but Clearview has gotten off to a blazing start this year. The Pioneers sent notice that they will be a Top 10 threat by knocking off Shawnee in their first game.
And Clearview has been winning ever since, playing solid fundamental soccer and showing a work rate that ranks among the best in the area.
