South Soccer Update

Twin Valley South defeated league opponent National Trail 10-0 Thursday night at home.  Jacob Wells had a hat trick (3 goals), Daniel Page, Jesse Woods, and Zach Guehring all had 2 goals apiece and Travis Lovely also scored.  Bryant Marker had 3 assists and Aaron Clark, Travis Lovely, and Jacob Wells all had 1 assist.  Coach Young, "It felt good to get back on track against Trail with a win.  We had lost a couple games in a row, so it was nice to get back in the winning column.  We had a couple game stretch where we had some games I thought we should have won, but we didn't get any breaks and some of the games we didn't show up ready to play.  The CCC has been a really competitive conference this year in boys’ soccer and anyone can beat anyone on any given night.  For my team it really comes down to mental preparation.  I feel that if we go into a game mentally prepared and play as a team we can hang with any team in the league.  But we also have had those games where I feel we don't even show up to the field like our Newton game.  I still think we are continuing to get better.  I really do not think we have hit our potential yet.  We still 3 league games so anything can happen there.  One of our other goals was to go above .500 and we still have a chance to do that.  So even though the season is starting to dwindle down, we still have a lot that we want to accomplish and we will keep working hard to reach our goals."

South girls tied, their score was National Trail 1 TVS 1. Scoring was Ava Watts on an unassisted goal.   

BlackHawks Dropped by Panthers















After watching a winless Arcanum team dismantle South last week, Mississinawa Valley was hoping to repeat that performance and get their first win of the season. But a resolved South team took it to the BlackHawks and quickly put any hopes of an upset to rest. When you run a spread offense and have to start a young team, a slick field is not something that you want to deal with. Turnovers would be a major factor on the night. The Panthers have a decent running game and they used that to keep the Black Hawk offense on the sidelines. They were able to grind out yardage in the teeth of the BlackHawk defense and churn out a 45-14 win.
