Argos soccer looking for dual regional title repeat this week

October 11, 2012

ARGOS — It’s funny how things work out.
Argos’ girls soccer team was tied 1-1 with Boone Grove in the final minute of their sectional championship game Saturday afternoon in DeMotte. If Jami Patterson hadn’t been able to put away the game-winner with 34 seconds on the clock, the Lady Dragons might not have gotten to Culver in time to catch the final minutes of the boys’ sectional title rematch with Bremen later in the day. And if they hadn’t been there, the Dragons, who were knotted in a 0-0 stalemate with the Lions, might not have gotten the boost they needed in the game’s homestretch.
