It’s another tough week for Sweet Home boys soccer

The Husky boys soccer team lost two games 3-0 last week against Elmira and Pleasant Hill.

The Huskies hosted Elmira on Oct. 6.

?They jumped on us real quick,? Schmidtman said. ?They scored in the first minute of the game. They scored three goals in the first 15 minutes, and didn?t score again.?

The team is looking to start out games a little stronger instead of waiting to the second half to put up strong resistance, Schmidtman said.

Elmira outshot the Huskies big, with 14 shots on goal, Schmidtman said. The Huskies had only four shots on goal, but Elmira did record to saves.

?We didn?t really test their goalie,? Schmidtman said. On the Husky end of the field, Isaac Villarreal recorded eight saves.

?We were having a hard time maintaining possession that game,? Schmidtman said. Elmira?s forwards were fast and kept the pressure on all game.

?We might give a little bit of props to the defense for only allowing three goals when we were pressured all game long,? Schmidtman said.

At Pleasant Hill on Oct. 4, the Huskies held their opponent off for most of the first half. Pleasant Hill scored right before halftime on a penalty kick based on a controversial call, Schmidtman said. A Pleasant Hill player tripped in the box, although Schmidtman thought he actually tripped over the ball.

The second goal was deflected off a Husky player into the goal, Schmidtman said.

The first half, the Huskies trailed 4-2 on the shot count, Schmidtman said, so they had a pretty even first half. The second half, the Huskies defended against 13 shots, and Villarreal had 10 saves.

Pleasant Hill didn?t drive another goal in until the 27-minute mark.

The Huskies had a total of four shots on the game.

The Huskies next travel to Junction City on Oct. 13.
