Boys upset No. 2 Blazers

Spartans move to 8-2 Monday with soccer win over W. Delaware

DYERSVILLE– The Solon boys didn’t mind Friday the 13th one bit.
Solon’s varsity boys’ soccer team traveled to Dyersville April 13 to face the second-ranked (Class 1A) Beckman Catholic Blazers and came away with a hard-fought, 1-0 upset win.
The lone goal came in the first period of play off a long free kick by senior Nick Radcliffe which found junior Luke McInnis whose header into the net was the difference in the game.
Senior goalkeeper Eric Weetman delivered another shut out with four saves against no goals allowed.
