The Iowa Mennonite School boys soccer team split a pair of matches in the Southeast Iowa Superconference tournament Saturday, knocking off Central Lee 2-0 at Columbus Junction, before falling in their first match of the season to Burlington Notre Dame 3-1 at Mediapolis.

The victory over the Hawks was a weather shortened affair that was not restarted after a delay five minutes into the second half. IMS got goals from Jacob Boller and Louis Etienne in the win.

Against Notre Dame, the Nike’s struck early with goals in the 13th and 31st minute to build a 2-0 lead going to the break. In the second half, Notre Dame stretched that lead to 3-0 with a 52nd minute strike. IMS got on the board in the 71st minute when Drew Blauvelt knocked in a rebound but could not pull back even. With the split, IMS is now 13-1 on the year and will face Washington Monday.
