    It has been almost one full year, 50 weeks really, since Branden Cresap has lined up under center in a game that counts.

    Cresap's knee was severely injured at Johnson Central in the third game of the 2008 season. Now after months of rehab, a full summer of passing tournaments and two scrimmages, Cresap will finally get to take the field in a game that counts.

    “I can’t wait,” he said. “The last two weeks it’s been awesome to get back out, but this [tonight] is going to be even better.”

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team coasted to an 11-1 victory at Spencer County on Tuesday.

    The game was called with about eight minutes to play because of the 10-goal mercy rule.

    “We had about a million chances to score,” SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. “I thought we played really well. I told the kids going in that I didn’t want them fooling around or joking around, I wanted them to play hard just like we were playing anybody else. It’s my belief that you respect your opponent by playing hard, and I thought we did.”
