ARGOS â€” Argos beat Rochester 5-0 as Girls Soccer Sectional 35 opened Monday at Eugene Snyder Field .
A pair of sophomores combined for a goal in the 12th minute as Hannah Harrell dribbled a ball deep into the Zebra defensive half and then flicked a square pass to Valerie Rospopo. The outside midfielder hit a hard, looping shot that hit the far side net and put the hosts up 1-0. The Dragons outshot the Zebras 10-1 in the first half but led only 1-0. Keeper Catherine Wresien had several point-blank saves in a crowded penalty area to keep the visitors in the game.
WARSAW â€” What a difference a week makes. Actually, in Plymouthâ€™s case it only took five days.
The Rockies entered Monday nightâ€™s Class 2A Warsaw Sectional opener with NLC rival Wawasee with the memory of last Thursdayâ€™s 3-2 loss to the Warriors still fresh in their memory.
CULVER â€” The Argos Dragons opened sectionals in impressive fashion, beating the Culver Cavaliers 12-2 in the opening game of the Class A Culver Sectional.
â€śWe started off a little choppy, which I expected. I think most teams, in the first five or 10 minutes, get a little nervous,â€ť said Argos coach Todd VanDerWeele. â€śThe ball was bouncing off their feet a little harder than usual. We settled down and got going early. I was happy with that. We had a rough game Saturday that didnâ€™t go our way. It was nice to rebound this way.â€ť
