DECATUR -- St. Teresa boys soccer won its second consecutive shutout as the Bulldogs blanked Tolono Unity 3-0 on Tuesday. 

Scoring was led by Edgar Onate with two goals and Vince Koester added one. 

Jace Hite and Giovanni Fuentes also recorded assists for St. Teresa (2-0). Goalkeeper Colton Moore recorded the shutout on three saves. 

Unity goalie Nate Reitmeier stopped seven St. Teresa shots. 

"Tolono did a very good job defensively getting stops in vital moments," St. Teresa coach Davis Wegmann said.

Although his team recorded the victory, Wegmann said they still need to step up their game. 

"Yes, we got the win and we got the clean sheet but we tended to kind of play into the other team's hands," he said. "We kind of played to their level. We need to play to our own level, play at the potential that we know that we can play at." 

The Bulldogs will next play at Arthur-Lovington-Atwood-Hammond on Thursday.

"Shania hit the ball very well for us this evening. As a team, we communicated well and we were able to work through small errors that crept up over the course of the evening," Cothern said.
