Rapid Rundown: Unity, St. Joe win season openers

Unity 7, Schlarman 0
Evan Bachert led Unity to a 7-0 victory over visiting Schlarman Academy with two unassisted first half goals in the Rockets' home season opener on Monday.

Unity notched four additional solo strikes from midfielder Alex Stahl, Andrew Cook and junior Micah Freeman in the first half. Freshman Andrew Miller later notched another UA and the first goal of his prep career in the second half after senior Wyatt Bailey put one between the posts on an assist from Stahl.

"Dominating possession of the ball and working together as a team," head coach Michel Stringer said, was the key to his squad's prolific scoring and starting the season with a 1-0 record.

The Rockets host former Okaw Valley Conference rival St. Teresa this afternoon and travel to Oakwood to take on the Comets on Thursday.


Spartans Open With A Win
St. Joseph-Ogden's Chase Stiner was credited with both goals in his team's 2-0 road win over the Oakwood Comets on Monday. Stiner scored in the first half giving the Spartans 1-0 lead at the break. SJO picked up a second goal when a Comet inadvertently put the ball inside the goal in the final half. Keeper Joel Branson rejected six attempts on the Spartan goal.

SJO plays another road match today starting at 5pm when they will face the Cornjerkers of Hoopeston Area. Thursday, the team will play their first home match of the season hosting University High School in their annual non-conference rivalry contest.
