FLC ties Sac-Waldorf in homecoming match

The Forest Lake Christian soccer team followed a solid defensive performance and an unassisted goal by Andreas Zeischegg to a 1-1 tie with Sac-Waldorf on Friday night.

The game was the homecoming match for the Falcons, which remained atop the Central Valley Christian League standings with the tie. Forest Lake is now 6-0-1 in the league, 9-5-2 overall.

“They were playing for a tie toward the end,” FLC coach Thad Kopec said. “For the last 20 minutes of the game, they only had two guys up front. It was hard to manage to get good shots off against them, but we got them anyway.”

Kopec said his Falcons out-shot Waldorf 25-7, but FLC wasn’t able to finish against the tough defensive effort.

“It was just a great game,” Kopec said. “It was an entertaining and fun game to watch.”

FLC had one goal called back for offsides five minutes into the game, but Zeischegg scored about 12 minutes later to take the lead. Seven minutes after that, Sac-Waldorf tied the score.

With just three league games to play, the Falcons have the inside track on not only a playoff spot, but a league championship.

NU match called

Nevada Union’s nonconference soccer match against North Lake Tahoe scheduled for Friday was canceled.

NU head coach Mike Voss said principal Marty Mathiesen called the game off after receiving an advisory from Air Quality Management, declaring an official “Health Advisory for Sensitive Individuals.”

The advisory stated that air quality is good but in some areas it may contain ash and smoke from area wildfires.
