"The first half we held them to three goals and played a solid defensive game," said EHS Coach Weston Peno. "The second half we contnued to play our defensive game and found a few looks on goal but nothing stuck. We held Mattoon for the first 25 minutes of the second half. After that, Mattoon moved the ball well and were able to find the goal five more times.

"Brandon Duncan defended against two PK's successfully. He had a phenomenal game with saves in the double digits. Gerard Herrar had a few good looks and a really solid run toward the goal in the first half. All around we had some small victories in this game against Mattoon, a consistently tough opponent."
