  • TC has more depth; expects more goals

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—New Tell City boys soccer coach Pat Jarboe has some simple goals for his team this season: “We want to score more goals than we did last year and we want to win some games.”
    He might also have added: bring some stability to the team.

    They went 0-12 and scored just one goal last season.

    The Commodores won their first sectional title in nine years, won their first regional ever, played a close five-game match with Indianapolis Ritter in the semistate, and tied a school record with 27 victories.
    That many accomplishments would be hard to repeat under any circumstances but is even harder considering the Commodores return only one full-time varsity player, Maddie Hubert, and she is switching positions.
