Warren Central’s soccer teams relocated and refocused, and walked away with two victories Thursday night.

Jordan Polk and Melissa Herrle each scored a goal as the girls’ team beat Terry 2-1 at Sports Force Parks. The game was moved from WC’s Viking Stadium because of construction work.

The Lady Vikes also added a forfeit victory over Greenville on Friday to their total to improve their record to 6-5 and bounce back from a 7-0 loss to Region 4-6A rival Clinton earlier in the week.
