LAKEVILLE â€” The first time the two teams played, Femi Hollinger-Janzen wasnâ€™t as much of an issue. At Saturdayâ€™s LaVille Boys Soccer Semistate, he took control.
The Indiana University recruit and Bethany Christian senior forward notched four goals within the first 22 minutes to give his team a 5-0 lead, then watched from the sidelines as Class A No. 3 Bethany coasted to an 8-0 semifinal win over Argos at Newton Park.
