The Switzerland County Middle School soccer team completed its first season sweep of South Ripley in over five years by beating the Raiders 3-2 on their home field last Thursday night.

The Pacers struck quickly in the first half on a goal by Jordan Bledsoe.

The Raiders then took advantage of defensive miscues by the Pacers to take the lead for a halftime score of 2-1; but the second half belonged to the Pacers, as they took control of the game on both ends of the field.

Anthony Dasis led the offense in the second half scoring two goals. Walter Barnes had two assists in the game.

Outstanding performances were put on by midfielders Bre Ricketts, Luke Haskell, Josh Yeary, Kaitlin Mukadam, Moriah McFarland and Nathaniel Christerson.
