Lancers Shut Out Dogs To Earn Shot At Third


The Lincolnwood High School soccer team picked up their fourth win of the season and their second shutout of the Kickoff Classic on Route 66 on Tuesday, Aug. 31, as they defeated Staunton 4-0 in Carlinville.

The Bulldogs were playing in their first game of the season after a COVID quarantine in Staunton, but held Lincolnwood to just one score in the first half as Will Jenkins picked up his first goal of the season.

The lead would grow in the second half though, as the Lancers picked up goals from Levi Weir and two from Elijah Aumann, who upped his total to 10 on the season.

The Lincolnwood defense would keep keeper Gabe Armentrout safe and allowed just two shots on goal, while the Lancers’ offense peppered Staunton keeper Grant Neuhaus with 14 shots.

With the win, Lincolnwood moves on to play Springfield Lutheran in the third place game after the Crusaders dispatched Athens 3-0 on Tuesday. The third place game was Wednesday, Sept. 1, in Carlinville, sandwiched in between the fifth place game between Staunton and Athens and the championship game between Carlinville and Hillsboro.

Unfortunately, the Lancers would fall for just the second time this season, losing 2-1 to the Crusaders. A recap of that game will be in the Sept. 7 edition of The Journal-News.
