The Marathon Lady Olympians lost a tight game against Lansing by the minimum score of 0-1 at home on Wednesday.
This was Marathon’s second game in two days, as they also played Moravia in a game where the Lady Olympians won 5-0 on Tuesday. With Wednesday's loss, Marathon has an overall record of 4-3.
The only goal of the game was scored with about 12 minutes left in the second half by Lansing’s Isabelle Gustafson.
“We looked our strongest, honestly, in the first 10 to 15 minutes, which we normally don’t; so I was pretty impressed with that,” said Marathon head coach Beth Anne Duncan. “It was a really lackluster way to lose.”
“We’re starting to click for sure as a team,” added coach Duncan. She then continued by saying that she was proud of the defensive efforts the team displayed.
Here is a score breakdown of the game:
Marathon recorded a total of 8 shots on goal and 2 corner kicks, while Lansing only had 1 shot on goal and 3 corner kicks.
Marathon’s next game will be a divisional game against Groton this Friday (September 15th). The game is scheduled to be played at Marathon high school with a 4:30pm start time.
