Mooresville junior combination midfielder/defender interrupts the communication kick line between a pair of Christ The King opponents during the Blue Devils’ home field win.

Back better than even ever before.

Mooresville High School’s boys varsity soccer team returned to the field following the Labor Day weekend refreshed and it showed.

The Blue Devils, making just their season’s second start at Coach Joe Popp Stadium, raised the bar even higher in the number of goals scored in a single set following a 5-0 quieting of Christ The King.

The non-conference affair found the Devils back in action for the first time in a week.

With the win, Mooresville improve to the 3-0-1 mark for the season overall.

The Devils bettered their previous best for the most goals in a single match in the process and added to the number of shutouts along the way.

The Devils stretched their number of consecutive winning performances to three straight after kicking off the season in late August.

Sophomore keeper Ben Burger logged in with the whitewash for the third time in the four games that the Devils prevented an opponent from registering a single goal.

Meanwhile, on the offensive front, the five tallies bettered the previous single-game high by two goals. No additional individual information was available.

Mooresville upped its goals-scored against goals-allowed ratio to the 12-1 level.

Mooresville traveled to take on cross-county rival South Iredell and then venture to Winston-Salem Glen Monday night.
