Hoopeston Area Soccer end in tie

The Cornjerker Soccer team kicked off a very busy week with their first of four games in five days against Bishop McNamara. The Cornjerkers scored less than two minutes in the game when Nick Hofer found Talen Gredy for the only goal of the game. Bishop Mac tied things up in the second half and that was all the scoring on the night. Owen Root got the check in the tie box by saving six of the seven Bishop Mac shots. 

The Cornjerkers will be back into VVC action Tuesday as they travel to play Oakwood/Salt Fork.

Hoopeston Area defeats GTRF/Westville in soccer

Hoopeston Area opened up their first home game by defeating a very talented Georgetown Ridge-Farm/Westville soccer team by the score 4-0. Cornjerkers got on the board at 22:23 with Isiais Diaz was in the right spot and the right time to make things 1-0 by scoring on a rebound. Talen Gredy scored his first of two goals about six minutes later once again on a rebound to make things 2-0. Ben Brown scored the team's third goal of the half when he made some fancy moves with the ball and was able to find the back of the net. 

Cornjerkers came out in the second half ready to play and not allow the GRF/W team to take control of the second half. The defense did an outstanding job keeping track of very talented forwards by the GRF/W team. Kamerin Cade, Preston VanDeVeer, and Gabriel Joneikis took turns running down Bina who has very good speed. Their one-on-one ball play was able to slow things down. Sophomore Mason Rush keeps showing great improvement on the defensive backside to lock down the back post. Sean Hudson, Cameron Zorns and Nick Hofer also went back on defense to set a good wall in front of Owen Root who saved all eight shots earning his second win of the year and Cornjerkers second shut-out of the year. Talen Gredy put the game away with 26:30 left in the second half when Diaz was able to chip the ball in front of the goal where Talen was able to get his head on it  to make the score 4-0.

Cornjekrers will be in action Saturday as they travel to Rantoul. The game will be played at the New Sports Complex off I-57.
