FROM STAFF REPORTS
The Statesville Christian middle school boys soccer team is off to a quick start in conference play after notching a pair of convincing wins.
Coach Kevin Hope is pleased with the way his Lions (2-1 overall; 2-0 conference) have started the season.
"We are a very young team, but our eighth-graders have been with us for three years now and have been an important part of getting the young players up to speed with our style of play," Hope said.
The Lions return to action Thursday when they travel to face conference rival Hickory Christian.
