HURON-With the end of the boys soccer season on the horizon, Mitchell High School traveled to Huron on Tuesday to battle James Valley Christian in hopes of recording its second win in three games.

The Kernels scored a 3-0 win over Harrisburg 10 days earlier and responded by taking a 1-0 lead on James Valley Christian at halftime en route to a 2-0 victory.

"We played a solid game," MHS head coach Ken Novak said. "I was proud of our ability to move the ball through the midfield to our attackers."

Mark Novak found Tanner Wenz for the first goal of the game, while Dillon Robinson added the second goal to seal the win in the second half.

Mitchell's offense was clicking all afternoon as the Kernels posted 18 shots in the win, while Trevor Lambert also made 13 saves in goal to preserve the win.

""We have been working on quickness of support and changing the point of attack," Novak said. "And today we executed on both."

Mitchell (2-8-1) hosts Huron on Thursday at Joe Quintal Field in the regular season home finale. James Valley Christian (1-8-1) plays Groton Area on Thursday in Groton.
