The Aurora boys soccer team trailed GICC 3-0 with 22 minutes left in the game and its season on the line when the Huskies rallied for four goals in the final 20 minutes to win the opening round of the B-7 subdistrict.

Husky soccer falls in district semis

Aurora could not keep up the goal scoring pace from the previous game as the Huskies fell to York 3-0 in the B-7 district semifinals Wednesday night at the Cornerstone Sports Complex in York. After waiting out some heavy rainfall, the game got underway 30 minutes after its scheduled timeframe. The Dukes scored one goal in the first half and two more in the second half all the while limiting Aurora's chances at the net. The Huskies end its inaugural season with a 2-8 record.

Looking to the future

For whatever reason, future Husker Big Ten football schedules fascinate me. They also drive me crazy.
Nothing about them makes sense, other than playing the same teams in the West Division every season. As for the East, it’s pretty much a crapshoot. What you see is what you get.
Case in point: Nebraska plays Ohio State the next three seasons to finish out a four-year home and away series, yet will only travel to face Michigan in 2018. Why no return trip in 2019? And why hasn’t Nebraska played them since 2013?
And this season, the Huskers travel to Penn State in November, yet there’s no sign of the Nittany Lions past that. The last time these two teams met was in 2013 in Happy Valley, Big Red pulling out a 23-20 overtime win immediately following the firing of Joe Paterno.
