So often, soccer teams take the field looking to get an early goal. St. Charles East took that state of mind to a nearly ridiculous extreme on Saturday, scoring not just an early goal but three goals in the opening 3:23 to set the Saints on their way to a 4-2 victory over Batavia. "That was awesome," St. Charles East junior Shannon Rasmussen said. "We knew we had to come out strong and play with the wind, because we had the wind in the first half. Everyone said this was a big game because it's our first conference game so getting the three early goals really helped set us up."
