SIDNEY — Sidney’s boys soccer team lost its second consecutive Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division game on Tuesday to Troy. The Trojans took an early lead and held off Sidney to win 3-1.
The Trojans lost to Carroll in a nonconference game on Saturday, which was their first regular season loss since 2015. They got back on track against the Yellow Jackets, as Kasheen Perdue, Elijah Williams and Conner Hubbell each scored a goal.
Gage Fridley scored Sidney’s goal.
“We played really well tonight in our loss,” Sidney coach Jamie Fridley said. “It was another game that we let slip away. We played well enough to win but we just could not find the back of the net. Troy ran a similar formation to us, so we knew what and where they wanted to go with ball. We just had a couple of unlucky breaks that lead to their three goals.”
It was the second consecutive match that Sidney sophomore Jalen Hudgins was held scoreless. Hudgins leads the GWOC with 15 goals.
Tippecanoe, which beat the Yellow Jackets 6-0 on Saturday, is in first place in the North with a 7-0 record. Troy and Vandalia-Butler both have 6-0 records. Piqua is in fourth place with a 4-1 league record, while Sidney is fifth at 5-2.
