Tuesday Night Boys Soccer Round Up: Benjamin Logan , West Liberty-Salem & Indian Lake


The Benjamin Logan boys soccer team defeated Springfield Shawnee 2-1 in the opening round of the OHSAA tournament.

Graham Studebaker and Landen Simon scored first-half goals with Kendahl Stanley notching an assist.

The win improves the Raiders to 10-5-3 and they will host Bethel this Saturday evening at 7 p.m.

Coach Hughes said, “The goal this time of the year is just win, survive, and advance.  We played really well that first half and moved the ball all over the place but only mustered 5 shots even though we probably had the ball 75-80% of the time.  But it did lead to 2 goals so our focus at halftime was to increase the amount of opportunities and generate more shots. Well, we did take a few more shots, but lost our possession which allowed them to get some chances and they deflected one in on us.  Not exactly what we wanted but we hung on to play this Saturday.  We are going to have to be better for sure as Bethel will be a tough team that we tied earlier this season. We look forward to the challenge as we look for another sectional title.”


Matthew Christison scored 2 second-half goals to propel the West Liberty-Salem boys’ varsity team to an exciting 2-1 comeback tournament victory over #8 seed Milton Union.

The team is now 9-5-2 on the season.

Pequignot scored in the second half.

Heath Wilson assisted Pequignot to get the golden goal to win the game in the final minutes.
