The boys soccer team (1–0–1) shut out the Urbana Hawks (1–1) 5–0 Saturday evening in a rematch of the state championship game last year. 

The Vikes’ offense came out strong, scoring a goal in the first three minutes, and two more before the end of the first half. Their defense remained solid throughout the game, and an additional two goals in the second half sealed the victory.

Striker Chris Vogel played strong offense, subbing on and scoring two goals in the first half. Midfielder Aaron Gunther also scored two goals.

The boys next face the Quince Orchard Cougars (0–1) Tuesday, September 10 at 7:15 pm at home.
