Bulldogs go 1 and 2 at Antigo Invitational
Peshtigo's soccer team won one of three at the Antigo tournament over the weekend.
In game one, Peshtigo fell 5-1 to Ironwood, with its only goal coming from Johnny Conn.
"Positioning, turnovers and ball pressure were why we lost to Ironwood," Peshtigo coach Joe Denny said. "We gave up several easy goals and couldn't rebound."
The second game was "a lot better," according to Denny. Peshtigo fell to Antigo 2-1, however. Conn scored again, but it wasn't enough.
"We had several shots, but just couldn't put them in the net," Denny said. "Same thing that hurt us the first time we met them."
The third game was a win for the Bulldogs, as they faced Gresham/Bowler and won 2-1.
"We kind of had some fun the first half with personnel in different positioning," Denny said. "We came out in the second half and got the winning goal."
Conn had the team's first goal and Nolan Lemke bagged the winner after the teams went into the break tied up.
With players contributing in different spots during the tournament, Denny mentioned Ryan VanVooren as a player who had a good weekend.
"Ryan has really been playing hard for us and I thought he really stood out this weekend with his hustle," Denny said.
For the team as a whole, Denny described them as a "fairly talented group," but said, "we are struggling to connect our passes and plays as a team," adding that "positioning and turnovers just kill us."
