TERRE HAUTE -- No single team provided a dominant effort during Saturday's Big Four Soccer Jamboree held at Terre Haute North High School.

In fact, most all of the play was pretty even amongst Terre Haute North and South, West Vigo and Northview.

Each of the boys' and girls' teams played two quarters apiece on Saturday, getting some game action against a different opponent and offering a nice respite from practicing against each other.

The Northview boys were able to score five goals over the course of their time on the pitch, but also allowed six. But the contest was a good warm-up before the Knights open the regular season on the road at Terre Haute North on Tuesday.

The Knights got a chance to play with a lead and from behind during the jamboree.

Against Terre Haute North, the Knights jumped out to a two-goal lead as Ken Wright and Evan Deal. The Patriots however rallied to score three goals to earn the win.

In the period against West Vigo, the Vikings climbed out to a three-goal lead before the Knights came back on goals from Brandon Hathaway, Wright and Michael Ball to tie the match.

The Northview girls struggled to find the net in their two periods of play, falling 2-0 to the host Patriots and 1-0 to West Vigo.

Braves' sophomore Alexis Penwell showed off her scoring prowess with a three-goal effort against Terre Haute North in a 3-1 victory. Kelly Meggs of Terre Haute North also had a good day with two goals against the Knights.

Northview's girls' team gets its season underway with a Thursday trip to Terre Haute North at 5 p.m.
