Stars start season off on high note

Crawfordsville — It isn’t very often that the Western Boone boys soccer team earns a victory in the season-opening game.

But that was the case Tuesday night, when the Stars topped Sagamore Conference foe Crawfordsville 2-1.

“It feels really good,” Western Boone head coach Mike Schlemmer said. “This is only the second time I think that we have started the season off with a win in school history. It is a good feeling.”

Crawfordsville is a potential sectional foe for the Stars.

But Schlemmer said he knew that Tuesday’s win wouldn’t mean much if the two teams met again later in the year.

“The thing about Crawfordsville is that as the year progresses, they just keep getting better and better,” Schlemmer said. “The team that we will see in the sectionals is not going to be the same time we saw tonight. They have some guys that didn’t play today that I’m sure will in the sectional. That is something we will have to look out for.”

Crawfordsville scored the games first goal, but Western Boone came back to take the lead on goals by Davis Clutter and Mike Noonan.
