In spectacular fashion, East Troy managed to go 1 up against Whitewater Boys’ Soccer with just 55 seconds played in the game on Monday, September 19. The Whippets recovered well and managed to contain East Troy for the next 38 minutes. Although unable to mount an effective attack, the Whippets also denied East Troy any clear goal scoring opportunities. Chris Cortez and Henry Mortimer played pivotal roles in keeping the score at 1-0 for the Whitewater team.
With 10 seconds to play in the first half, East Troy mounted a lethal counterattack and managed to grab a second goal.
The second half continued in the same manner with both teams vying for possession in the neutral third and no team having the clear-cut advantage. Ten minutes from full time, East Troy scored a 3rd goal, and that is the score line that ended the match.
The Whitewater Boys’ Soccer Team travels to Jefferson this Thursday and then won’t play again until 9/29.
