The ball traveled long and high without the control we desired. We outshot them, but couldn’t get the ball past their keeper. Second half looked better as we were able to pick up the pace of the game and control the ball. We lacked creativity in the final third of the field, resulting in a 0-0 tie.Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Kyle Hunteman.Tuesday night the Bulldogs traveled to South Dearborn to face the Knights in one half of a junior varsity match.We didn’t waste much time in asserting our will on the game.
