ARGOS â€” Argos took a 5-1 decision over visiting Logansport Tuesday night, getting a pair of goals each from Samantha Stults and Ally Rospopo.
The Berries struck first when freshman Whitney Jennings corralled an errant Dragon pass and took it in for the score in the 13th minute. Rospopo leveled the match with five minutes to go in the half on a rebound in front of the goal.

Bremen goalie Pedro Jimenez and the Lions back line also stepped up their play, however, thwarting a total of six shots on goal in a roughly 15-minute span to force a 2-2 draw with the host Rockies in a boys soccer game at Kindt Field Tuesday.
