SELLERSBURG — The Silver Creek boys’ soccer team kicked off its season with a 3-1 win over visiting Madison on Saturday.
Michael Thompson, Luke Lehmenkuler and Joshua Lewis all three found the net for the Dragons. Lewis also picked up a assist along with Jason Hernandez. Keeper Jack Gleason picked up nine saves in the win.
“There were a lot of positives to take from our first game,” Silver Creek coach Colin Bell said. “We played with a lot of defensive intensity and just sure grit. Our defense is what won us the game. I am very pleased that we put the ball into the net as efficient as we did. It is unfortunate that we lost our senior defender Ty Kessinger for a significant amount of time. Hopefully he can be back before sectionals.”
Silver Creek will play its first road game of the season on Monday at New Albany.
