Whitko soccer ties Rochester, 2-2
SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Whitko soccer coach Jason Ehrman continues to see progress with his team. After coming off a tough 4-0 loss Wednesday night to Eastbrook, the Wildcatâ€™s were back in action Thursday.
Three Rivers Conference opponent Rochester came calling, and after 80 minutes of play both teams settled for a draw with each team scoring two goals.
â€śA win would have been nice, but to play them (Rochester) to a draw was special for this team. Rochester and Manchester are probably the two best teams in our conference, and to come out with a tie is a major accomplishment,â€ť said Coach Ehrman.
The first half had the Zebraâ€™s scoring the only goal with senior forward Arik Shanklin finding the net at the 24:23 mark.
â€śI thought we came out a little sluggish at the start. Maybe that was due to playing the night before. We were a little tired, but we regrouped after our first goal and played our best soccer of the season,â€ť said Coach Ehrman.
The second 40 minutes of play saw the Wildcatâ€™s tie the score and then take the lead on a couple of quick goals.
