GREENVILLE — The boys soccer team opened the season with a 4-3 loss to Greenville in a back-and-forth match.
Scoring twice for the Cavaliers was sophomore winger Jake Emrick, who also added an assist. Senior captain Alex Wiseman also put one in for Lehman.
“I warned the team late last week that we should not underestimate Greenville,” Lehman coach Tom Wiseman said. “They are a Division II school that hadn’t beaten us in a while, and would be gunning to hang a loss on us. Even though we looked better in the overall statistics, they unfortunately proved me right and at the end, they just wanted it more than we did.”
Lehman fired off 24 shots to the Green Wave’s 15. Sophomore keeper Ryan Goettemoeller recorded seven saves for the Cavs in his first-ever start in the net, while Greenville’s keeper blocked 16.
“That’s the most shots we’ve taken in a while,” said Wiseman. “But on the other hand that’s also the most shots we’ve allowed in quite a while. We hit frame much better than in the preseason (16 shots on target), but almost all of them were straight at their goalie. That’s not an insult to Greenville’s keeper – he was positioned very well all game. After the first 25 minutes, we held possession about 60 percent of the time, but when you only hit 13 percent of your shots and your opponents double you up at 26 percent, you’re going to lose almost every time.”
The Cavs are back on the road on Saturday, traveling to Lincolnview to open up WOSL league play.
“One of our goals this year is to win the WOSL, and that starts Saturday,” Wiseman said. “This may sound a little odd, but losing tonight may turn out to be the best thing to happen to us this year.”
