Looking to redeem themselves from a disappointing loss against Rocky River, the Lutheran West Longhorns looked for a win against the young and inexperienced Lake Ridge team. However, the Longhorns were unable to put together a full 80 minute game and fell 5-3.
In the first half, the Longhorns started strong and controlled the tempo of the game. However, early in the 30th minute, Lake Ridge snuck behind the Longhorn defense and capitalized on a quick run, going up 1-0 over the Longhorns. The Longhorns answered with two goals by junior Josh Sekola¸ assisted by sophomore Anthony Lantz and senior captain Tim Coulter. Up 2-1, the Longhorns looked to hold the lead until half. However, Lake Ridge was able to put in two more goals before the half off of long balls played to their forwards.
At half down 3-2, the Longhorns looked to slow down the game and possess the ball. In the beginning of the second half, the Longhorns made many great runs and got many great shots off, but none would drop to score. Lake Ridge answered by putting in two more goals in the second half off of quick runs by their forwards. Junior Aaron Beckman played strong against Lake Ridge’s quick forward, but he was able to sneak by on a few runs to score. With 15 minutes left, senior captain Nick Vrabel scored off of a cross from Sekola, but it was too late for the Longhorns to come back, and they lost 5-3.
“It’s tough to see us lose to teams like this,” said Coach Josh Hubeler after the game. “But it just shows us that we need to make some improvements. We will be strong for Brooklyn.”
