One game is just that. Not a streak or a trend. St. Charles East offered compelling evidence Tuesday the heightened expectations of its soccer team existed for a purpose.
“They were bigger, stronger and faster than us,” Neuqua Valley coach Skip Begley said.
Senior forward Zach Manibog scored two goals as the top-ranked Saints struck early and often in smashing the No. 5 Wildcats 5-1 in the season-opening game for both highly touted programs.
St. Charles East effectively ended the game in the first half with three impressive goals that host Neuqua Valley could never seriously counter.
