LAKEVILLE SEMI-STATE-It was a tough morning at Newton Park for the Boys team. The Dragons fell behind early and could never recover. Bethayn Christian was as good as advertised in a 8-0 win over Argos on Saturday morning.
“We just couldn’t get started. It was just one of those games we were hoping to avoid, but couldn’t.”, said Argos Coach Todd Vandeweele. “It is still a great season for Argos Soccer with both the Girls and us (Boys) making it Semi-State at the same time….being part of school history.”
Argos finishes 13-7 on the season.
