AVON — The Avon girl’s soccer team suffered a tough loss Monday afternoon, losing 3-2 to the Keshequa Indians at home.
The game went without scoring until late in the first half when Avon added goals at the 4:22 mark and the 2:28 mark. The Braves would hold a 2-0 lead into the second half, but a flurry of goals from the Indians inevitably led to the loss. The Indians scored their first goal at the 34:19 mark, their second at the 15:57 mark and the deciding goal at the 14:29 mark.
Jill Terry, head coach of the Avon girls soccer team, thought her team played well in a losing effort, “I think we played very well, I think we had a couple letdowns in there that we shouldn’t have, which changed the outcome of the game.”
Terry added that Keshequa’s attack in the second half may have attributed to the letdown.
“It was a combination of a different type of offense that they were playing and we weren’t quite familiar with it and we weren’t keeping up with our marks quite as well as we should have,” Terry said. “We were getting a little confused in the back and giving up a few mistakes here and there.”
Avon (8-3) will play at home against Leroy on Wednesday at 4:30.
