TROY — The Troy and Bethel boys soccer teams played to a 1-1 tie Saturday at Troy Memorial Stadium.
“I thought this was a great high school soccer match, especially for the first game of the season,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “Good crowd out to support both teams, a great atmosphere. I felt we played a very good first half of soccer after giving up a very early goal.
“In the second half I did not think we moved the ball as well as we did the first half but much of that could be attributed to Troy’s increased pressure and work rate. Proud of my guys tonight playing a good match against a well-coached Troy team.”
