Dragons win home invite
Damon Binkley scored on a pass from Zach Stockman to break a 3-all tie with just seven minutes remaining, and the Argos boys soccer team held on for a 4-3 win over NorthWood and the championship at the Argos Invitational Saturday.
A sophomore forward, Binkley found Taylor Ogle for a score in the 15th minute to give Argos a lead. However, just before the half, Clay Seitz hit a low, hard shot to draw the Panthers level at the break.

Taylor Wegmillerâ€™s corner kick careened off two Argos players for a score, and Tad Chamberlin nailed a free kick in a crowd soon after to tie the match again.
In the opening round, the Dragons got scores from Taylor Ogle, Jordan Oâ€™Dell and Binkley to move past John Glenn 3-0. Max Bailey, Brian Snyder and Dominic Cataldo had assists, and Jacob Mechling earned the shutout in goal.
