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
