home opener on Monday afternoon at the LCU soccer field. It turned out
to be the best home-opener in recent years, as LCU (1-2) throttled CCCB
LCU brought power to the game right from the start from the foot of
senior forward Craig Hoskins (Bloomington/University High). In the
game's first seven minutes, Hoskins put a shot in the back of the
goal, to kick off what was going to be a great offensive game by LCU.
After Hoskins' goal, CCCB quickly answered with a goal of their own.
However, that would be it for CCCB in the half, as LCU scored again
in the waning minutes of the half to put the score at 2-1 heading to
When the second half began, it was all LCU, as they
dominated the offensive end of the ball and controlled the game the
entire half. LCU was able to grab three more goals during the second
half, while junior goalkeeper Logan Arney (Effingham/Effingham High)
held CCCB scoreless. Arney recorded 16 saves during the game.
In the second half, Hoskins added another goal, finishing the
match with two goals. Sophomore Mitchel Burgener (Olney/East
Richland High), sophomore Mitchel Brannock (Heyworth/Heyworth High)
and freshman Luke Chen (Hangzhou, China/Affiliation High School of
Hangzhou Normal University) each recorded goals on the game.
Sophomore Parker Radecki (Greenwood, Ind./Central Grove High) also
recorded two assists.
