CHARLESTON -- Effingham defeated Danville JV 1-0 Thursday evening in the Red & Gold Invitational Soccer Tournament at Charleston. Effingham's Ivan Carrillo scored with 11:17 left in the first half, assisted by Austin Wenthe.

Centralia blanked Decatur MacArthur 3-0 in Gold Pool play. The Red Pool begins today with Charleston facing Teutopolis and Mattoon taking on Olney.

Effingham's varsity improves to 2-0 on the season.

"We only had one victory all of last season, so this is a great start to the season," said EHS Coach Aaron Witges. "We have all 11 starters returning from last year and in just two games, it is obvious that all of the kid's hard work and dedication throughout the spring and summer has made for a vast improvement in the overall skill level of the team."

Effingham's Junior varsity lost to Champaign Central 3-1. Tyler Katz scored Effingham's lone goal. The JV stands at 1-1 in the tournament.
