Mt. Vernon blanks Aces

MT. CARMEL - A rebound off the post in the 30th minute provided Mt. Vernon, Ind. with all the scoring it would need in a 1-0 Big 8 Conference soccer victory over Mt. Carmel Tuesday at Wabash Valley College.
Aces coach Ed Berberich said “neither team was able to get off many shots as this game was played mostly in the midfield area.
“Our defense in the back line, and Alex Stoneberger in goal, were pretty good, but offensively we weren’t very patient with the ball when entering the attacking third, and we made many play-killing decisions, often giving the ball up to Mt. Vernon with careless passes before we were able to get off a shot.”
The Aces did begin to push offensively in the final 10 minutes as they attempted to get the equalizing goal, Berberich said.
Mt. Carmel (1-5-2) played at Mt. Vernon, Ill. Thursday night.
