No. 8 Dragons slay Berries

Logansport falls back to .500 after 5-1 loss to Argos

Logansport’s girls soccer team was handed a 5-1 defeat by visiting Argos on Tuesday.

Mariana Figueroa had the lone goal in the contest for the Berries (3-3), who played the Class A No. 8 Dragons to a 1-1 draw in the first half.

“We played a good first half,” Logan coach Todd Reiff said. “The problem is there are two halves to play.

“There’s a great quote by Bear Bryant: ‘Don’t give up at halftime. Concentrate on winning the second half.’ We struggled with that. The first half we did things well and did what we needed to do. The second half we just didn’t focus on what needed to be done.”

Logan senior Whitney Jennings entered having scored 16 goals in the first five games of the season before being shut out by Argos. Jennings suffered a sprained ankle two weeks ago in the season opener but Reiff said that she’s fine and credited the Dragons’ defense.

“They don’t give up many goals. They played Plymouth, who beat us 8-3, and gave up just one goal,” Reiff said. “They’ve played a number of quality teams that they’ve given up just one goal against.”

Jennings’ father, Doug Jennings, is an Argos legend, leading the Dragons to the Final Four in basketball in 1979 and is still their all-time leading scorer in boys basketball.

Argos, which has an enrollment of 202 students, also has quite a tradition in soccer.

“That’s their sport, it’s important to them. They don’t have football. Soccer, that’s their thing,” Reiff said. “They put a lot of time and effort into it.

“We’ve never beat them.”

The Berries played the Dragons to a 1-1 tie last season but didn’t have the same luck this year.

The Berries host Twin Lakes next Tuesday.
