Andes boys still unbeaten after back-to-back soccer victories

By Julia Green
The Andes boys’ soccer team extended its unbeaten streak to four games this week, posting victories against Davenport and Gilboa on Thursday and Friday, respectively.
“Going into the game we knew it was going to be a tough game,” said Andes Head Coach Adam VanValkenburgh of Thursday’s 2-1 win at Davenport. “Davenport traditionally has been one of the better teams in the league. I think we definitely caught them off-guard – I don’t think they expected us to play as hard as we did.”
