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.
