Wilson's 2nd half goal seals Spartan soccer victory

After the game clock showed 0:00 on the scoreboard, St. Joseph-Ogden head coach Bill DeJarnette told his players: "This was a big win!"

The scoreboard also showed the Spartans had beat visiting St. Thomas More, a feat that had not been accomplished in nearly half a decade, 1-0.

"It felt good," said Spencer, who scored the game's lone goal on a pass from senior Jared Emmert with less than eight and half minutes to play in the game. "It was my time to score."

The sophomore's strike also handed the Sabers their third loss of the season and their first loss to SJO as members together in the Illini Prairie Conference.

Goalkeeper Hunter Ketchum tallied six saves for the 9-6-1 Spartans.

SJO has three more matches for the remainder of the month of September starting at 9a tomorrow against Georgetown-Ridge Farm tomorrow morning. Tuesday the team will travel to Bloomington looking to also upset Central Catholic once again and two days later will host Rantoul Township on the SJO Soccer Field starting at 4:30p.
