Riverview's boys soccer team had the look of a dark horse entering the season, but the Raiders are making a move toward the front of the Section 2-A pack.

Behind two goals from Cole Wilson, Riverview edged host St. Joseph, 2-1, on Tuesday afternoon on a water-logged field at Harrison Hills Park.

For second-place Riverview (4-3, 3-1), Cole Quinio and Zach Lesnick logged assists on Wilson's goals, and Sam Gonsowski made 10 saves. Ricky Celko scored, and Matt Rubright had nine stops for St. Joseph (3-4, 1-3).

“This is a real big win for us,” Riverview coach Mickey Namey said. “The second half's going to be real interesting.”
