Cavaliers Keep Panthers From Win Number One


The Carlinville High School boys soccer team improved to 5-0 on the season and kept Litchfield looking for their first win as they defeated the Panthers 7-0 in the final pool play game of the Kickoff Classic on Route 66.

The Cavaliers peppered the Litchfield net with 27 shots, 19 of which were saved by LHS keeper Cameron Crow. Crow was in net for the first 63 minutes of the contest, before making way for Traegen Madeline for the remaining time.

Thirteen of Crow’s saves came in the first half, but three shots were able to slip through as Trieton Park scored twice and Matt Dunn added a third.

The second half started with a scoring flurry 22 minutes into the period, with Tyler Summers and Levi Yudinsky knocking in back-to-back goals in the span of 14 seconds.

Park would complete his hat trick five minutes later and Yudinsky added a second goal to make it four in the half and seven in the game.

Both Ean Davis and Drake Gasperson had shots on goal in the loss, but weren’t able to get anything past Carlinville keeper Will Meyer.

Under normal circumstances, Litchfield would have played for seventh place in the tournament on Wednesday, but COVID put North Mac on the bench and left the Panthers without an opponent.

Now 0-5 on the season, Litchfield’s next game will be on Saturday, Sept. 4, against Freeburg on the Midgets’ home turf.
