The Bluejay soccer team broke through with one of its best wins in program history when it knocked off Wis. Rapids 1-0 at home on Tuesday night.
The Raiders were tied for first place with D.C. Everest, before Merrill picked up its first victory in conference play to improve to 1-5.
“We played an awesome game,” MHS coach Luis Mendoza said. “Our defense played their best game so far and we were smart with the ball.
“It’s a huge win for us. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but the guys proved today that we can play against any team in our conference and I’m very proud of them.”
Devon Annis netted a pass from Aidan Ball in the 33rd minute of the first half, for what would end up being the only score of the game.
Trevor Asmundsen turned back all 10 Rapids shots on goal, while Merrill put 5 on Jordan Thames.
