Coach Matt Anderson said he wasn’t quite sure what to expect in his team’s first soccer match of the season Tuesday, April 8. What he saw gave him reason to be optimistic about the Lions’ year.
Clear Lake broke open a close match with Garner-Hayfield/Ventura in the second half and posted a 12-2 win.
“It was great getting outside and being able to compete. It’s hard to know if your prepared for a match when the weather refuses to cooperate,” said Anderson. “There’s plenty of things to work on with two big matches next week.”
