Cardinals fall to Knoxville in shootout
The Newton boys soccer team saw its impressive early-season stretch come to an end in a thrilling game Friday against Knoxville.
It was a game in which possession was essentially dominated by the Cardinals, but the goal-scoring opportunities just did not present themselves, and when they did, the Cards were unable to capitalize as they lost a game that went all the way to penalty kicks, 2-1 (4-3).
“The game was probably closer than it should’ve been,” Newton coach Tim Heger said. “We didn’t really play up to their potential. The boys were really disappointed. We were able to control the ball, but the scoring opportunities just weren’t there, and when they were, we weren’t able to convert.”
