West Vigo High School
West Vigo lost in the sectional championship game to Greencastle 7-1 Saturday. Greencastle (15-2-1) is the defending sectional champs and they showed why with their explosive offense, led by 9 seniors in their starting lineup. West Vigo held close for the first 25 minutes, but Greencastle broke the game open to close out the first half with a 4-0 lead and the Vikings never recovered. Tyler Joy scored a goal for the Vikings in the second half to put West Vigo on the board. West Vigo finishes the 2017 season with a 6-9-2 record overall and a WIC record of 2-3, finishing in 6th place in the 12 team WIC. This has been a magical season in many ways for the Vikings boys soccer team. The team beat Sullivan at Sullivan twice in one season for the first time in school history; also, this years team scored 40 goals this season, which is 3rd most in school history trailing only the 2010 and 2011 teams. The Vikings are losing 7 seniors from this years team: Sean Beaver, Blaine Corbett, Elijah Fulford, Jordan Favre, Andy Beal, Dawson Drebes, and Jarrett Scott. Great job Vikings!
