CALEDONIA — Galion’s soccer teams hit the road Wednesday evening to take on River Valley in conference play. Despite solid second-half play by both, they came up short against the Vikings.
The girls team was first. Kate Wildenthaler was in goal for the Tigers in the first half and recorded seven saves while allowing six goals. After halftime, coach Eric Palmer tried Allison DeNero in the goalie spot. She did well with 10 saves and allowed one goal. When the final whistle blew, it was a 7-0 victory for River Valley.
Galion’s boys team saw similar results. Coach John Stewart had Stephen Thompson in the goal box for the first half. Thompson allowed six goals and came up with 10 saves. Luke Eisnaugle was the goalie for the second half, stopping six shots and allowing just the one goal.
The Tigers were able to get off seven total shots on goal for the match. Two of those shots found the back of the net off of the foot of Matt Sparks. Skyler Bishop provided an assist on one of Sparks’ goals. River Valley proved to be too much for Galion though, winning 7-2.
