Boys soccer narrowly loses to Churchill 1–0

By Michael Gorman

[score id=”46513″ align=”right”] Boys soccer was taken down by the Churchill Bulldogs 1–0, dropping their record to 7–6. Despite a convincing defensive effort, the Vikes were scored on by Churchill’s counterattacks and were unable break down the tough Bulldog defense.

Once the Bulldogs scored about 60 minutes into the game, they bunkered down on defense and made the Vikings pay for their own errors.

“They scored off our mistake, and once that happened, frustration kicked in,” midfielder Carlos Lovo said. “We had many chances, we just couldn’t capitalize.”

Going into the postseason, the team hopes to execute their game plan more effectively.

“We need to get back to what we were doing during the five-game win streak,” Lovo said. “We need to play fast, and with conviction.”

The Vikings will try to correct their form going into the last game of the regular season Wednesday at Northwest, a 7–3 team coming off a 5-0 victory against Springbrook.
