MONROE - Every year, Green County's two soccer teams, Monroe and Sugar River, play a physical rivalry game. Often, it seems, it's the Raiders that come out on top.Thursday afternoon, it was Monroe's turn, as the Cheesemakers used two first half goals to upend their Highway 69 rival."(Sugar River) came out and really wanted to beat us. They almost always win," Monroe head coach Tony Stamm said. "But this will be great when it comes to seeding because they are in the same division as we are."
