Vermillion's boys soccer team ranks No. 1 in the state in Class "A" club soccer this week.

 The Tanagers won a 2-1 decision last Tuesday over Harrisburg, the second-ranked team, at Cotton Park to preserve their perfect record.

 The unbeaten Tanagers take their 6-0-0 record and top power-points average to the Black Hills this weekend.  On Friday they play at Sturgis, whose current 5-2 record ranks the Scoopers third in the state with losses only to Custer and Lead-Deadwood.

 The Tanager boys will then play Tea Area at the Yankton Trail fields in Sioux Falls at 6 p.m. Tuesday before closing the regular season at home at 1 p.m. Sept. 29 against Chamberlain.

 Meanwhile, the Tanager girls failed to score a goal in a pair of contests last week, losing to Harrisburg 6-0 and to West Central 5-0.  The VHS girls are 1-6 overall and 0-6 in power-points games.  They will also go west this weekend for two games – at Sturgis Friday and at Belle Fourche Saturday – to end their regular season.
