Late in the first half, the Lutheran South Pioneers were able to sneak in a goal, after a loose ball scramble in front of the Warriors net. It wasn’t pretty, but they all count the same!
At halftime, the score was 0 - 1, in favor of the Pioneers. The second half brought more of the same intense and tough action all over the field. The Warriors had three remarkable opportunities, after several nice passing combinations. But, in the end, CCS was not able to break through with the equalizing goal.
Lutheran added a goal late in the match on a penalty kick. The game would end 0-2 in favor of the Pioneers. Regardless of this outcome, the Warriors finished District play at 6-2, and secured the third seed in the District Tournament, which brings a first-round bye.
