Sturgeon Bay lit up the scoreboard 6-1 against Gibraltar/Sevastopol Thursday night in highs school boys soccer. It was close at half time as Sturgeon Bay held a slim 2-1 advantage. Nick Voigt scored the lone “Vikineers” goal and was assisted by Will Albertson. Clippers Coach Todd Maas said, “I think our boys are starting to find a groove in our ball possession and attacking half. The ball was moving side to side efficiently, crosses made with pace, and passes for the most part were good. Not great we still turned the ball over way too much, but a least we would battle and get the ball right back.”
Maas continued,”Gibraltar has improved from the previous years and throughout this year. (They are) well-disciplined to keep the ball in front of them, and not get out of shape. They made it difficult to get a clean look into the 18 because of all the guys they had playing defense, but it’s a tactic that works and makes it hard on our guys. The second half I thought we were more efficient on our transitional play to get in early before they organized. Which was something we talked about at half. All in all a good game from our guys and a strive forward again to where we need to be.
Sturgeon Bay had 28 shots on goal to Gibraltar’s two. The Clippers had 22 22 crosses and seven corner kicks. Gibraltar did not have any crosses or corner kicks.
It will be a big final week of the regular season for Sturgeon Bay with games against Peshtigo, L-C, and Preble.
