Last night, Boys Soccer Varsity and JVA were in action at home against the Lakota East Thunderhawks.  In the opening match of the evening, JVA and Lakota East remained scoreless until the closing minutes of the first half, when the Thunderhawks hammered one into the net from the top of the box.  Down by one after the half, the Elks made several strong attempts to equalize, in an increasingly physical contest.  With just under 10 minutes left in regulation, a keen-eyed official noted lightning in the vicinity of Middletown, and called an end to the game with Lakota East on top 1-0 and evacuated the stadium.  With their first loss of the season, the JVA Elks' record now stands at 4-1-1. 
Fortunately, the weather cleared up for the Varsity match against the Thunderhawks.  The Elks took a 1-0 halftime lead, thanks to an early goal by Casey Miller on an assist by Ryan Forino.  In the second half, the Elks blew open what was supposed to be a tight game and trounced the Thunderhawks by the score of 8-1.  The Elks' goals and assists were as follows: Ryan Forino (Cole Zengel), Casey Miller (Ryan Forino), Ryan Forino (Brayden Rike), Philo Antoun (Zach Horwitz), Jack Rudolph (unassisted), Cayden Holley (Griffin Shockley), and Harrison Roebken (Griffin Shockley).  Having handily defeated both Lakota West and Lakota East, the Varsity Elks wish there existed a Lakota North and Lakota South, so they could dispatch them as well.  Varsity improves to 6-0-1 on the season.


All three Boys Soccer teams traveled to perennial soccer power, Mason High School, to take on the Comets in a triple-header.  JVB was tied 0-0 just after the start of the 2nd half when the game was called due to thunderstorms.  Gage Kettlewell and Max Green combined for the shutout.  JVB moves to 1-1-2 on the season.  Thunderstorms prevented JVA from taking the field.  Fortunately, the skies cleared in time for Varsity's game.  Prior to last year's exciting win, the Elks had lost 7 straight to the Comets.  Thanks to another excellent performance, Varsity defeated the Comets 1-0 and now own a 2 game streak in the series.  Late in the 1st half, Casey Miller rocketed a shot from outside the box that took a slight deflection from a Mason defender for the Elks' goal.  Both teams generated numerous scoring opportunities in the 2nd half, and the Elks' defense held strong to preserve the victory.  Josh Seebacher earned his 3rd shutout of the season and was absolutely stellar in the goal.  Josh's diving save late in the game was truly amazing.  Varsity improves to 5-0-1 on the season.

After six intense final minutes, time ran out, with the match ending in a 2-2 draw.  JVA’s season record now stands at 2-0-1.
