Split decisions

By on September 13, 2013

KANELAND—For a little while, Kaneland soccer was able to see how its offense was able to click against a Little Ten Conference school.

Unfortunately, the Knights were also able to see how stifling an opponent could be against an Upstate Eight Conference opponent.

On Friday, the Knights stifled Hinckley-Big Rock by a 6-0 final, and on Monday were defeated by the host Streamwood Sabres, 2-0.

Kaneland sits at 2-2-1 through five matchups at the early juncture of the 2013 campaign.

KHS got two first half goals against the Royal foes, thanks to an Arsim Azemi score off a James Bartholomew feed with 30:57 to go before halftime, and an Ignacio Toscano goal 24 minutes later from a Jack Wolf assist.

The four goals in the second half were tallied by personnel Bartholomew, Toscano, Azemi and Kolin Limbrick within a span of 25:29.

Kaneland fought to a scoreless first half against the Sabres, but were blown back by two goals in the second half, down three starters due to injury.

Sophomore soccer had KHS and Streamwood tie at one apiece.

On Thursday, Sept. 12, the Knights travel to Aurora to battle Illinois Math and Science Academy which continues their three-match road trip.
