MOORE – Riding a two-game win streak, Yukon’s Miller soccer team went into Thursday night’s match looking to make it three in a row.
It didn’t go the way the way the Millers expected.
Southmoore scored a pair of first half goals and posted a 3-1 win over the Millers Tuesday night at Southmoore High School.
The Millers, 2-1, had come into the match outscoring opponents 8-3 in the first two matches, but couldn’t get their offense rolling most of the night.
“We got out played and out worked in the first half,” Miller head coach Neil Hilton said. “We showed up in the second half and scored right after halftime.
“We pushed and played well in the second half, but we dug ourselves a hole too deep to climb out of,” he said. “In the last minute, we threw everyone forward and conceded a third goal with 20 seconds left to play.”
The Millers, down 2-0, came out scored in the early minutes of the second half on a shot by Zach Snow.
The defense stopped Southmoore’s attack, but the offense couldn’t get another shot past the Sabercat goal keeper.
“They came out physical and won every first and second ball and we didn’t react to their energy,” Hilton said. “We proved to ourselves we wasted a chance to win.”
