The Oak Ridge Wildcats started the regular soccer season with a 4-0 win over Campbell County at home on Tuesday.
The Wildcats outshot the Cougars 20-2.
The Wildcats played four pre-season games, and senior Jose Rodriguez, the second-leading scorer last year, injured his ankle. But he should be back in a week or two, Oak Ridge Coach Jeff Trombly said.
Senior defender Blake Clowers also did not play Tuesday because of medical issues, Trombly said.
New to the team this year is senior Wildcats football player Matt Warmbrod, who primarily played linebacker. Warmbrod played up front for the Oak Ridge soccer team on Tuesday and scored one of the Wildcats’ four goals.
