Clippers Drop Season Opener in Boys Soccer

Sturgeon Bay’s boys soccer team could only muster one goal Tuesday evening when the Clippers lost their season opener at home to Green Bay Notre Dame, 6-1.

“Huge learning curve for us this season,” said Sturgeon Bay head coach Todd Maas. “We took one on the chin.”

The Clippers, who trailed 3-0 at halftime, scored their only goal in the second half on a penalty kick by Ben Stephens.

Sturgeon Bay (0-1) returns to action Thursday when the Clippers host Kewaunee.

Kiel 5, Gibraltar/Sevastopol 0

Gibraltar/Sevastopol was unable to tally a goal in Tuesday’s 5-0 season-opening loss at Kiel.

The Raiders scored in the 12th, 22nd and 36th minutes of the first half and added a pair of second-half goals in the 50th and 74th minutes.

Gibraltar/Sevastopol head coach Chris Roedl called the team’s first game “a good learning experience for us.”

“Kiel did a great job pressing forward and running a high-block formation,” he said. “We made some early mistakes they capitalized on.”

Aaron Tomaszewski had 10 saves in the match for Gibraltar/Sevastopol (0-1), which returns to action Thursday afternoon at Algoma.
