The Indians improve to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the CBC, while the Raiders drop to 1-3, 0-2.

“We knew going in with a couple of key injuries we were probably going to have to put some guys in some different positions throughout the game,” said Ben Logan boys head coach Jamie Hughes. “We believe we are a deeper team this year and I was very proud of how our guys responded.

“We had a three-minute span early when they made some plays and put us in a hole, but subtract that three minutes and we play them 1-2 the rest of the way.”

Stebbins scored three goals in a two-and-a-half minute span during the first half to grab a 3-0 lead.

Cole Pelger scored the lone goal for the Raiders on an assist from Josh Kratz in the second half, but the Indians added two more goals and held on for the win.

The Indians also won the junior varsity game 2-1. Julian Cain scored on an assist from Josiah Kratz to lead the Raiders, who drop to 4-2.

 Chiefs blank Falcons

Bellefontaine’s boys soccer team handled host Graham for a 4-0 win Wednesday in Central Buckeye Conference action.

The Chieftains are now 2-2 overall and 1-1 in the CBC Kenton Trail division, while the Falcons slide to 0-3, 0-2.

“This was a good game for us to play at this time,” said BHS boys head coach Steve Henry. “We didn’t play our best soccer, but we got the win and that’s exactly what we needed. We moved some guys around and I feel like it added a little more string to our attack.”
