Eagles edge Tigers in Big East match

SHEBOYGAN – Mathias Otten scored on a header in the 64th minute to give Sheboygan Christian/ Lutheran a 3-2 win over the Howards Grove Tigers in boys soccer action Tuesday afternoon at Christian.

Otten’s goal gave the Eagles a 3-2 lead in the second half. The Big East Conference match was the season opener for both teams.

The Eagles and the Tigers finished 1-2, respectively, in the Central Lakeshore Conference last year before moving to the new Big East this year.

The Eagles led 2-1 at halftime on goals from Danny Schimberg and Jacob Stecker. Stecker’s goal with 9:41 left in the half gave SC/ SL the lead.

Senior midfielder Derrick Grimm tied the match, 1-1, for the Tigers when he scored with 21:08 remaining in the opening half. Senior forward Devin Gallenberger made the assist. Grimm’s goal was only 1:41 after Schimberg’s tally.

HGHS tied the match, 2-2, on a goal by freshman forward Will Rautmann on a header, assisted by Gallenberger.

We need to shore up our defense and put more pressure on the ball,” said new Tiger head coach Kasey Smith.

“We had some guys in new spots and it may take them some more games and time to feel comfortable.”

The Eagles led 10-6 in shots on goal. Tiger goalie Hunter Voss made six saves. Eagle goalkeeper Nick Falconer had four saves.

“Our communication on the field was great and we battled back twice after being down,”said Smith.

“I am glad we faced a tough team right out of the gates – it shows the boys right away that we need to continue to work hard and try new things.”
