Boys Junior Varsity Soccer, Boys Varsity Soccer · Boys soccer overcomes and ties Barberton 1-1


Boys Soccer traveled to Barberton for tonight’s game against the Magic.  It was a very physical game and the defense was strong.  Late in the second half the Magic were awarded a controversial Penalty Kick and they converted it, to take a 1-0 lead.   Tallmadge, with their never say die attitude, fought back,  keeping offensive pressure on the Magic.   Tallmadge’s Goal was by the way of an indirect free kick from  5 yds. in the left side  of the Barberton penalty box.   A Barberton defender had obstructed Jerry Walsh as he followed a ball through their penalty box.  On the try, Justin Betts stepped on the ball leaving it for Nick Hussing to shoot it to the far post.  Jason Betts was able to get a head on it and flick it past the Barberton keeper to tie the score.   Keeper Tommy Kilway turned in 8 saves as the defense stood strong with great performances by Christian Lambacher, Jadon Wolf and Josh Rayl.
