---- — Michael Noonan scored the first two goals of the game, helping Western Boone defeat Crawfordsville 5-1 in the first round of the sectional on Wednesday. The Stars advance to the the sectional title game for the fourth-straight season. “My first goal was probably the best goal I’ve ever had,” said Noonan. “The keeper went up to grab it, my teammate got in the way of him and it bounced to the side almost outside of the box. I volleyed it with my left foot and it went inside the left post.” Western Boone head coach Mike Schlemmer said that the defenders stepped up big for the Stars as they have all season. “Our defense has played well all year and it’s not just our back line defense, it’s our defense in the middle of the field,” said Schlemmer. “You think about our midfielders as being offensive but tonight those guys stepped up and our defense at midfield was definitely the key to our victory."
