INDIANA â€” Trevor Peace powered the Punxsy boysâ€™ soccer team to its first victory of the season on Saturday. Peace assisted on two scores and blasted two goals of his own to defeat DuBois, 4-2, in the second day of the Indiana Tournament.
Host Indiana claimed a 2-0 win over Punxsy in the season opener Friday.
After a Beavers' goal just under six minutes into the contest, the Chucksâ€™ Kevin Hughes netted the first goal of the year at 31:57 off a pass from Peace for a 1-1 halftime score.
Hughes put Punxsy ahead with his second tally at 56:05 from another Peace pass. Peace would put the match away with two long-range blasts. The first Peace boot came off a direct kick 45 yards away at 62:04 before booting an even longer 50-yard goal coming at 69:58. DuBois added a late score to make it a 4-2 final.
â€śIt was a great game between the teams. We were pleased to come out on top,â€ť said Chucksâ€™ head coach Phil Shenkle. â€śIt was a great win against a quality DuBois team.â€ť
On Friday night in the opener, Punxsy was unable to find the back of the net.
After a scoreless first half, Punxsy was called for intentionally handling the ball to stop a goal and was called for a red card at 44:07. Indiana took advantage of the penalty kick, and Mason Lockard made it 1-0 Little Indians.
The Chucks played with only 10 players the rest of the way.
Dalton Bright added a second Indiana goal at the 65:10 mark for the 2-0 result.
Punxsy will stay on the road for a 4 p.m. start at DuBois Central today.View more articles in:
