The Custer High School soccer team’s final regular season game scheduled for last Saturday in Belle Fourche was cancelled, another victim of the massive fall blizzard that swept through the Black Hills. 
However, the team was at Sioux Park in Rapid City Oct. 1 to take on the St. Thomas More Cavaliers, and came away with a 1-0 win.
Much of the first half of the game was played in midfield, with both teams trying to gain control of possession. Custer assistant coach Doug LeFebvre said the Wildcats protected Custer goalkeeper Matt Lepke for much of the first half. Although the Cavaliers got off 10 shots at goal, most were from long range.
The first real scoring opportunity of the match came in the 37th minute, when David Hernandez was tripped in the box when he went to take a shot and was awarded a penalty kick. Hernandez took the penalty kick, but was denied by More’s keeper.
