Boys Soccer

Jackson Center 2, Lehman Catholic 2

Lehman Catholic ran its season record to 5-2-1, while staying unbeaten and alone in first place in the WOSL (5-0-1) by tying Jackson Center 2-2 on Thursday.

Scoring for the Cavaliers was Jake Emrick and Conor O’Leary. Emrick and Michael Denning had one assist a piece.

The Cavaliers struck first when O’Leary hit the back of the net, but then the Tigers got two before halftime with Gavin Booser hitting both goals, one off a misplaced goal kick and another on a penalty kick. The Cavaliers got their second in the middle of the second half, and that was the way it ended. Lehman had 18 shots to Jackson Center’s 17.

“That was a gutsy performance for both teams,” Lehman coach Tom Wiseman said. “It was a great soccer game to watch, with two very evenly matched sides. We would have loved to get the win and the points, but against a team like Jackson Center who is talented, works hard, and is coached well, we’ll take the tie.”

Lehman continues play Saturday against Miami Valley No. 3-ranked Troy Christian at 11 a.m. The Tigers (4-3-3, 2-0-3) play next on Monday at Fairlawn.
