Scoring for Lehman was John Henry Frantz off an assist from Jake Emrick. Botkins scorers included Kaleb Hanby with 2 and Tommy Russell. Lehman finishes the WOSL campaign at 5-4 and drops to 5-9-1 overall.

“Actually, we really controlled the first half and maintained possession very well,” Wiseman said. “We came out in the second half and did well in the first 10 minutes, but our effort waned in the middle 20 minutes, and we let them use their size and age to their advantage. At the end of the day, when you outshoot an opponent 20-11, you should win or at least tie. We just couldn’t find the corners of the goal.”
