SM East’s boys soccer team got off to a solid start to the 2013 season Aug. 30 with a 3-0 win over district rival SM West.

And tonight, they’ll get a chance to keep building their resume as the first round of the KAMO Tournament kicks off. The Lancers will face Schlagle at the Blue Valley District Athletic Complex at 4:30 p.m. The tournament continues Tuesday and Thursday, with the Lancers’ draws dependent on the outcome this afternoon.

Coach Jamie Kelly must be hoping his team comes out playing as cohesively as they did in their opener, where Michael Mardikes netted the first goal of the season with a header off a corner kick. Ari Throckmorton and Noah Eidemiller — a fixture on last year’s excellent squad – scored the other two goals against SM West.
