Just when things were cooking for Kyle Reinwald's Patriot soccer team, the injury bug bit and bit hard.
Tuesday night's 9-0 loss to A-J saw a host of Massac players on the bench. All four seniors and a handful of others were "on the pine."
The 9-0 whitewashing followed another tough loss to Carterville Monday afternoon as the boys fell 4-1 to Carterville -- as if the sweltering heat isn't enough. Thursday has the boys going northwest to Murphysboro.

This Thursday, the Patriot Cross Country team will be in action as they host the Patriot Invitational at Fort Massac State Park. Let's hope the heat breaks a little.
