The Northview soccer team let one get away on Thursday night versus the Edgewood Mustangs falling 4-3.
The Knights got off on the wrong foot in the first half scoring an own goal that left them tied in the first half, 1-1 after a goal from Shaun Hardy.
"The own goal was a tough way to start," commented coach Todd LaComba. "But you can't blame the game on one lone goal."
In the second half the Mustangs wasted little time in taking the lead on a goal just 16 seconds in as Kyle McGlone raced past the Northview defense for a quick goal.
However, the Knights responded strongly as Kyle Russell worked his way through the midfield and fired home a goal just inside the post from 20 yards out to knot the score at two-all.
Shortly afterwards Northview grabbed the lead on a corner kick that found its way to Josiah Brock who fired a quick shot from in front of the net, the ball bounced to Nate Navel who sent the ball to the back of the net good for a 3-2 Northview lead.
Unfortunately for the Knights that was where their offense ended as Edgewood applied the next pressure.
The Mustangs attack resulted in a shot that Northview keeper Tyler Montague wasn't able to corral, McGlone hammered home the goal to even the score at three apiece with 7:30 remaining.
With just 5:03 left in the game Edgewood broke the tie when a shot from the end line skipped off the near post and into the goal for the 4-3 victory.
Wade Thacker had three shots on goal while Kyle Russell added two and Hardy also had two. Michael Gallion had eight steals while Brock Crooks had six. Montague had 23 saves in the game.
With the loss the Knights are now 3-8 overall and 1-2 in the WIC with a game on Saturday with Brown County. The junior varsity will host Cascade on Monday at 5 p.m.
