BACK TO WINNING

Berries brush off forfeits, bury HN on senior night

It didn’t take long for Logansport’s boys soccer team to get back to its winning ways.

In their first game back since they found out they had to forfeit their first four wins of the season, the Berries turned back Huntington North 3-1 Tuesday on senior night at the LHS soccer field.

Kevin Gonzalez scored two goals and Orlando Casimiro added another as the Berries improved to 1-8 and 1-3 in the North Central Conference. They were 4-4 and 2-1 before the forfeits due to the use of an academically ineligible player.

“I think that we handled it well. It’s a new season right now,” Gonzalez said. “We’re trying to come back from what happened. The past is the past and we’ve just got to move on, look forward to sectionals and try to win it.”

Casimiro scored in the game’s third minute off his own rebound on an assist by Jose Hernandez.

The Berries took a 2-0 lead into halftime when Gonzalez scored from point-blank range on an assist by Phil Stephenson with 1:18 left in the half.

A Stephenson in-bounds pass was headed by Ram Bo to Gonzalez who again found the back of the net to make it a 3-0 game with 15:05 remaining.

The Vikings (5-6-1, 2-1) made a push down the stretch to make things interesting. Sacha Thirion scored with 5:52 remaining to get them within 2 but they wouldn’t get any closer.

“[Goalkeeper] Chuy [Jesus Martin] made some good saves, especially that diving kick one,” Gonzalez said.

The Berries had several other good looks at the goal and had one taken away on an offsides.

“I thought that we were attacking them heavily,” Gonzalez said. “We had plenty of shots, attacking, passes, through balls. I feel we could have ran up the score more, but we still played decent. We played solid defense, still didn’t get the shutout again. We’re still trying.
