Friday night the Junior Aces soccer team suffered through a 10-0 loss at Owensboro Ligers, “one of the best junior high teams I’ve ever seen, better than a lot of high school teams,” said coach Ed Berberich.
Sunday, back at home against the other Owensboro, Ky. team in the ISL, United, it was a different story. The Aces controlled the flow of the match and prevailed, 3-1, for their first league win of the young season.
How impressive was the victory? Berberich didn’t want to tell his players that United had lost to Ligers only 2-0 earlier in the season. “And they were asking,” Berberich said.
Mt. Carmel, now 2-1-1 overall, and 1-1-1 in the ISL’s 3rd Purple Division, got goals from Grady Wilkinson, Cole Linson and Simon Berberich.
