The varsity boys soccer team played their final regular season game of the 2019 season last night at Alumni Stadium. Standing in the way of the Elks closing the season with a victory were the visiting Beavercreek Beavers, the 2019 GWOC American League champions.
The visiting Beavers scored first with about 16 minutes left in the first half to take a 1-0 lead. Late in the half, the visitors struck again and took a 2-0 lead into the locker room at halftime. The Elks got within one in the second half, but could not get the tying goal and dropped a hard-fought, 2-1, decision to the Beavers. In the first game of the night, the JV A team and the Beavers ended in a 1-1 tie.
Finishing the regular season at 8-7-1, the boys now turn their attention to the OHSAA Sectional tournament where they will open up with a home game on Tuesday night, October 15 against Stebbins at 7:00 PM at Alumni Stadium.
