Brutus leads Purple Tigers over TC

Taylor claims share of MIC tennis title.

Northwestern’s boys soccer team out-shot Tri-Central 43-13 in Thursday night’s matchup in Sharpsville, but the shots didn’t yield much production in the first half, as the teams played to a 1-1 tie by intermission.

The Purple Tigers found better luck in the second half, pushing three goals through to take a 4-1 victory over the Trojans to improve to 11-3 on the season.

“I thought in the second half we were a little more patient on offense,” Northwestern coach Jim Wagner said. “We weren’t taking as many quick shots as we did in the first half. We ended up controlling the ball much of the game and out-shot them, but had a couple balls hit off the post.”

Blaine Brutus had a superb night for Northwestern, scoring all four of the squad’s goals. Brutus was assisted by Parker Fessenden, Jacob Wagner and Cameron Cotheren.

“Blaine was pretty relentless around the goal and made a couple nice shots to help us secure the win,” Jim Wagner said. “In the first half, it seemed like we rushed some shots that maybe weren’t the highest quality of shots we’d like to see. We worked the ball better in the second half, and that led to better shots, which helped us break through.”

Grant Condon posted six saves in goal for Northwestern. Jake Kimbrow scored Tri-Central’s goal in the first half.


The Comets built a 5-0 lead by intermission, cruising to a home win over the Blackhawks to improve to 9-3 on the season.

Jordan VanMatre led the way with four goals. Cole Walker added a pair of goals, while Darren Bellow, Dillon Ryan, Dalton Ryan and Lucas VanMatre each added a goal. Ben Cole had the team’s lone assist.

Delon Tuggle and Ben Evenson shared time in goal, with each posting a pair of saves. Sheridan managed four shots on goal.
