The boys soccer team keeps on rolling after last night’s 3-0 shutout of Northwest at home. Sam Robinson scored 2 goals, with Jake Kelly adding another tally and an assist. The Braves record is now 5-0 in the SWOC and 7 and 0 overall. The Braves have shutout their opponent in 6 of 7 games this year. Their next league match is Tuesday at home against Ross.

The girls volleyball team collected their second conference win last night on the road against Northwest in straight sets. Their overall record improves to 3 and 7, 2 and 3 in the SWOC.

The girls soccer team also collected a win yesterday with a 4-0 victory over Northwest on the road. Their record improves to 4-2-1 overall and 3-2-0 in the SWOC.

And the girls tennis team fell to Ross by a score of 4-1 yesterday on the road. Their conference record falls to 3-2, they’re 4-9 overall.

No home games for today, but the Football team will travel to New Richmond for a Week 4 non-conference matchup.  The Lions are 2-1 this season, and are coming off a 28-14 win over Monroe. Kickoff is tonight at 7 — keep in mind it’s about an hour and 20 minute drive. It is a hawaiian out.

And that’s our broadcast on this Friday. I’m Patrick Geshan. Thanks so much for watching, and have a wonderful weekend.
