HOOPESTON — Brennan Crose scored twice in the second half as the Hoopeston Area boys soccer team remained undefeated in the Vermilion Valley Conference with a 2-1 win over Salt Fork/Westville on Thursday.
The game was scoreless at halftime, which was a departure from the scoring both teams have had as of late.
“They are a speed team and have a lot of talen and we knew they would keep us on our toes,” Hoopeston Area coach John Klaber said. “We came out flat early on it was more of a testament to them for playing us tough. It was a back and forth game and we are happy to have won.”
Elijah Yates had a assist and Trey Anderson had seven saves in goal for the Cornjerkers, who are 11-1 and 4-0 in the VVC and will play Mahomet-Seymour in non-conference action on Saturday.
Jordan Romo scored the only goal while Aaron Marx had 15 saves in goal for the Storm, who will play Urbana University High on Saturday.
