Jackson Center 5, Lehman Catholic 1

Lehman had a tough night Thursday in a Western Ohio Soccer League game.

“It was a frustrating game for the coaches and players today because we played well overall,” Lehman assistant coach Jake Emrick said. “The midfield was able to sting passes together to get the offense going but we could not convert. This was something Jackson Center did well. We were not aggressive defensively and they scored easy goals.”

Elijah Jock scored for the Cavaliers off of a far shot outside the 18-yard box. Goalkeeper Will Voisard recorded six saves, bringing his career total to 220.

Jackson Center statistics were not reported.

“Mary (Lins) moved up a spot to second singles and battled hard.”
