On Tuesday, September 18th, the JV soccer team defeated the crosstown rival Portage Central at the Mustang’s home field by a score of 1-0.


The lone goal was scored by sophomore Marcel Jones. “It was exciting, I like that I was able to represent my school by scoring that goal and winning us that game,” he said. Other key Huskies that lead to the victory were wingers Garrett Stoll and Jeremiah Tonthol, midfielders Enzo Weaver and Aiden Keck, defenders Ben Pilnick, Brayden Andrews, Tyler Wells, and goalkeeper Jack Thompson.


The victory was bittersweet, especially because it was followed by a varsity defeat by a score of 2-1. “We outworked them, and we wanted it more,” said JV head soccer coach Dave Shufelt. “We dominated in the central midfield. However, it was still a difficult game and I’m glad we got the win,” said sophomore midfielder Aiden Keck.
