Prairie Stars roll past Blackburn in opener

Before Friday’s season opener, University of Illinois Springfield men’s soccer coach Joe Eck said his team needed to set the tempo for the season in the Prairie Stars’ first year in NCAA Division II.

The win was featured in an August 28, 2009, article in the State Journal-Register.
