SIDNEY — Sidney won its second in a row and remained unbeaten overall with a 4-1 victory over Springfield in high school boys soccer action at Sidney Tuesday night.
The win puts the Yellow Jackets at 3-0-2 on the season with Chaminade coming to Sidney High tonight.
Springfield is 1-5.
“We had a very solid first half for the second game in a row,” said Sidney coach Daniel Wicks. “We created chances right off the bat and scored very early in the game. We continued to dominate throughout the half and had a deserved 3-0 lead at the half.”
The Jackets were able to add just one more goal after the intermission.
“I was disappointed in the way we performed in the second half.” he added. “It’s tough to play with the intensity that we played with at the beginning of the game for 80 minutes, but that’s what we are working to get to. Credit to Springfield. They came out determined in the second half to make a game of it. I’m very pleased the boys are starting to have success in front of goal, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. We have a big game at home (tonight) against Chaminade that we are looking forward to. It will be a good gauge to show how much we’ve improved this season.”
Ben McClain scored two goals and had two assists to lead the Jackets. Dakota Wenrich and Austin Epperly scored Sidney’s other goals, and Chase Lorenzo also had an assists.
In goal, Ben Snavley had three saves.
