W-SR 2, CL 1
The Lions battled valiantly to come back from a 2-0 halftime deficit, but Waverly-Shell Rock held on for a 2-1 victory Monday, May 6.
The Go-Hawks scored in the 28th and 37th minute of the first half to take a 2-0 advantage at the break.
Clear Lake finally got on the board in the 68th minute of the contest when a shot from Antonio DiMarco found its way into the net.
Bryson Hamilton had three saves in goal for the Lions.
“This is the third game in a row where we have gone into the half down 2-0. For some reason, we don’t seem to care until after we’ve given the other team a couple freebies,” said Coach Matt Anderson. “In the second half of the game we controlled the ball, had more shots on goal, and seemed to find purpose for playing a soccer match. Unfortunately for us, a soccer match is 80-minutes and we ran out of time, again.”
