Soccer Grems Defeat Bluebirds
The Sacred Heart Gremlins improved their record to 10-4 (3-0 Conf) with a 1-0 victory over the Cole Camp Bluebirds on Tuesday night.

The Gremlins relied heavily on possession out of the back for the remainder of the half, completing 101 passes in the first 40 minutes. Senior keeper Dallin Chappell was once again stellar making several big saves off his line.
The back line of Reuben Smith, Kobey Hill, Lucas Martin and Traven Wheeler recorded their eighth straight shutout.
Freshman Luke Jenkins provided a strong second half defensive performance and solidified the midfield defensively. The Gremlins connected on 184 passes for the game, a season high.
