DAYTON — Sidney lost 8-1 to Dayton Carroll in a Division I sectional semifinal on Tuesday to finish the season 6-9-2 overall.

The Yellow Jackets gave up four goals in each in the first and second half. Senior forward Michael Koester scored Sidney’s goal late in the first half on an assist from Graham Van Tilburgh.

Senior goalkeeper Jack Davidson had 12 saves.

“We played a really good Carroll team tonight and gave our best effort, but we could not get the result we wanted,” Sidney coach Jamie Fridley said. “We had an up-and-down season. Considering all the injuries, illness and having a shooter on the loose, it was a pretty good season.”

Koester and Davidson are two of nine seniors. The program will also graduate Carson Taylor, Landon Davis, Ben Savage, Kaehlo Bonnette, Josh Pelealu. Nathan Gailey and David N’Douba.

“It is always hard to say goodbye to your seniors, but this was a fantastic class of young men,” Fridley said.
