Soccer season ends with loss at Vermillion
Published: Thursday, October 17th, 2013
Despite twice having the lead in its attempt to play itself into the state soccer tournament, the Custer High School soccer team fell 4-2 last Saturday to the Vermillion Tanagers. Vermillion, not Custer, will now move on to the state soccer tournament, which begins Friday.
Custer struck first in the play-in game, when Levi Schryvers scored in the fourth minute after Graysen Trandem found David Hernandez for a header attempt that was punched away by the Vermillion goalkeeper. Schryvers got to the rebound and kicked the ball in to give Custer the 1-0 lead.
Five minutes later Vermillion tied the score, but Custer again took the lead in the 23rd minute when Chase Cole crossed the ball to Hernandez, who kicked the ball in and put Custer back on top 2-1. However, seven minutes later, the Tanagers centered the ball and the Wildcats were not able to get it cleared soon enough, allowing Vermillion to get a foot on the ball and put it into the net, tying the game. The Tanagers tacked on one more goal late in the half and led 3-2 at the break.
