ARGOS â€”Â The Argos Dragons got off to a slow start Tuesday night at Eugene Snyder Field but were able to overcome that sluggish start in the second half and defeat the LaVille Lancers by a score of 5-0.
The Lancers came out with a defensive mindset from the start, hoping to slow down the potent Dragon attack.
â€śI knew we had to play a defensive game against Argos, and thatâ€™s what we did,â€ť said LaVille coach Tom Kline. â€śI was very pleased with the way they played. This is the best game they have played all year for me. My keeper kept us alive. Sophomore Jackson Jones is a great goalie.â€ť

WALKERTON â€” In years past, a 6-0 loss at the hands of Jimtown might have seemed pretty respectable. It might even have been thought of as a kind of moral victory for John Glenn.
You couldnâ€™t tell that to first-year Falcons coach Dave Sharpe after Saturdayâ€™s loss, though.
Sharpe â€” the son of longtime Jimtown football coach Bill Sharpe and a former Jimmies football player himself â€” was taciturn following his teamâ€™s narrow 6-0 defeat at the hands of its Northern State Conference rival in Walkerton.
