Lehman boys

drop match

Lehman Catholic dropped to 4-6-1 on the year, losing 3-1 at Franklin Monroe in the completion of a previously suspended game on Tuesday night.

Scoring for the Cavs was Trey Kerrigan off an assist from Jacob Schmiesing.

It looked as though Lehman had scored the go-ahead goal at the 20 minute mark of the second half, but the goal was nullified due to an offside call. The game remained tied until the 15 minute mark when the Jets put one in to break the deadlock. Another goal later finished the scoring.

“Great effort by our boys,” Lehman coach Tom Wiseman said. “It’s very tough to have to go to FM twice in one year, and we just could not get many looks at goal. They just had more opportunities and when that happens, you tend to come up on the short side.”

Lehman travels to LCC tonight for a pivotal WOSL clash.
