The Wolves kept rolling and remained unbeaten with a non-conference win.

Earlville 10, Sandwich 0

Johnathan Carlson had 10 saves in goal for the Indians (0-7). “Despite giving up 10 goals, Johnathon Carlson may have played his best game in goal,” Sandwich coach Aaron Mlot said. “Working on little things is difficult to do on a warm, sunny day with no subs. Tired legs accumulate and our back five are vulnerable. Earlville exploited that vulnerability and hung double digits on the Indians.”


Plano 184, Rochelle 212 (Friday)

Mason Accidentale shot an even par round of 35 to pace the Reapers at Cedardell Golf Course. It was Accidentale’s fourth straight round as medalist and fourth consecutive round shooting 38 or better.
