MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets boys soccer team wasn’t really tested on Tuesday.

Mount Vernon won, 12-0, over an outmatched River Team team. Actually, it could have been worse.

The Jackets were taller than those on the Black Bears’ team. They were bigger. And they were faster.

It seemed, at one point, like they were scoring at will. The Jackets (2-0) took the ball from River View when they wanted. They passed to each other with relative ease. And they landed a shot on goal the moment the ball handler was open — which seemed to be all the time.

“It’s one of those situations where it’s a rebuilding year for them,” said Mount Vernon head coach Scott Dapprich. “They’re young.”
