With just three seniors on their roster, the youthful Golden Falcons battled D.H. Conley for 80 minutes in a 1-0 loss on Monday evening.
In the first half, the Vikings did a good job of keeping possession of the ball and limiting C.B. Aycock’s shot attempts. Still, the score was tied 0-0 at the end of the first half.
C.B. Aycock was unable to convert on a free kick in the 68th minute. From just outside the box, Zach Naughton’s free-kick bounced off the post, and off the deflection, Austin Sawkiw’s shot was saved by D.H. Conley’s goalie.
Two minutes later, the Vikings (2-0) finally broke through as Massimo Mannino’s shot found the back of the net to give D.H. Conley a 1-0 lead.
During the final 10 minutes of regulation, the Golden Falcons (1-2-1) did everything they could to tie the game, but time was not their side, and the Golden Falcons could not tie the game.
C.B. Aycock hosts South Lenoir (0-4) on Wednesday.
