MAHOMET — The Mahomet-Seymour boys’ soccer program is cruising yet again. Two more wins this week have improved the Bulldogs’ overall record to 9-2-1. They have yet to be beaten by an Apollo Conference opponent.
M-S 2, Bloomington 1. Eli Warren, Jake Janda and Colten Brunner controlled the game all night long, to help M-S squeak past a good Bloomington squad 2-1 on Saturday.
Warren drilled a penalty kick to give M-S an early 1-0 advantage. Halfway through the second half, Bloomington knotted it up.
But M-S continued to put the pedal to the metal. Janda’s goal with 10 minutes left in the game proved to be the game-winner.
M-S 7, Effingham 1. M-S scored five second-half goals to blow out Effingham 7-1 to improve to 5-0 in conference play.
Logan Woodward was the star with two goals and two assists. Kadyn Jones added one goal and Janda got in on the fun with a goal.
“Kadyn Jones had a nice free-kick to score as he inches closer to join a handful of former players to earn 50 points (goals + assists),” head coach Jeremy Davis said. “He currently is at 44.”
Nate Lundstrom and Sam Henrichs both had one goal and one assist. Clayton Gibson had a goal, and Matthew Sims and Luke Creel both had one assist.
“The boys’ first-half attack was, at times, selfish and at times a bit too predictable,” Davis said. “In the second half, it had the delicious complexity of a fine balsamic. The attack came from wide places. It came from high places. It came from low places. At the end of the day, the Bulldogs feasted.”
The Bulldogs will look to keep their long winning streak alive when they face off against Danville at 12:30 p.m. Saturday. M-S will hit the road to play Urbana on Monday at 6 p.m. On Thursday, the Bulldogs will continue Apollo Conference play with a road matchup against Charleston.
