On Thursday, October 15th, the Boys Varsity Soccer Team traveled to take on Copley High School. It was a cold damp fall night for a soccer game. The Bears lost to a very good team 4 to 1.
The Bears came out off the initial kick-off quickly and were able to generate some early chances. Less than 8 minutes into the game Killian O’Callahan was able to break through the Copley defense and was knocked over by a sliding defender from behind. O’Callahan was able to convert on the ensuing penalty kick to give the Bears a 1-0 lead.
Copley began to push back with several opportunities created by their wings and was able to tie the score about halfway through the first half. The Indians took the lead on another goal with less than 5 minutes remaining in the half and lead 2-1 at halftime.
Copley continued to dominate possession in the second half. The Bears were not able to get anything going forward consistently. Copley scored a third goal on a penalty shot after one of their players was knocked down in the box. They scored a fourth goal on a shot from the top of the box that found the upper corner of the goal.
The Boys Varsity Soccer Team record is now 5 wins 4 losses and 4 ties. The Bears next game is at home against the Westlake Demons on Saturday, October 17th at 7:00 PM. GO BEARS!!
