Logan soccer teams sweep at Anderson

Logansport’s soccer teams enjoyed a day of domination in a girls-boys doubleheader at Anderson on Saturday.

The LHS girls team opened the day with a 6-0 win over the Indians, and Logan’s boys team followed with a 6-1 victory.

In the girls contest it was just another day at the office for Whitney Jennings, who scored four goals for the Berries (3-2, 1-0 North Central Conference). She has scored multiple goals in each of the Berries’ first five matches of the season and has 16 goals already on the year.

Mariana Figueroa and Ashley Spear each scored a goal. Spear, Amber Hart and Sydney Thompson each added an assist.

Karli Armstrong recorded the shutout in goal. Bailey Graham, Spear, Thompson, Haley Riemenschneider and Sam Kain also had good games defensively, according to coach Todd Reiff.

In the boys game, it took Orlando Casimiro just 14 seconds to find the back of the net for the Berries (2-2, 1-0). Rigoberto Avila and Phil Stephenson each had two goals in the contest. Jesus Aguilar also had a goal.

“We dominated play,” LHS coach Mike Turner said. “Our shooting percentage is improved.

“We had some weather delays in both halves, but I was impressed with our focus for this game. The second half was cut short by lightning.”

The LHS boys next host Lafayette Jeff on Wednesday, while the girls host Argos on Tuesday.

Winamac went 0-1-1 on the day in Plymouth. The Warriors opened with a 6-1 loss to Trinity Lutheran before playing South Bend Clay to a 0-0 tie.

Zach Markley had the Warriors’ lone goal on an assist by Gage Garpow against Trinity.

“We never seemed to find a rhythm in our first game,” Winamac coach Mark Eber said. “We got on the board to draw within 3-1 early in the second but could not sustain the momentum.”
