LEROY — Pine River’s soccer lamented its season opener at home on Friday with limited preseason time and that factor didn’t help the Bucks in their 8-0 loss to Mason County Central. The host Spartans built a 5-0 lead and scored the eighth goal with 6:16 left in regulation to invoke the mercy rule.
Connor Willick scored the last two goals for MCC. He also scored earlier in the game. Cody Newman netted four goals. Brad Padgett had the other goal. Jared Jones was the goalkeeper.
