On a windy, chilly night at The Pit, the Minden Crimson Tide and Lady Tider soccer teams were looking to prove their legitmacy against the Flyers and Lady Flyers of Loyola.
Both teams came up short unfortunately, as the Crimson Tide fell 7-2, and the Lady Tiders got blanked, 7-0.
It wasn’t the outcome that boys coach Tracy Lee or girls coach Cale Frye were looking for as they continue the push for a playoff berth. The boys game was marred by not only the result, but by a nasty injury to forward Benton Lewis late in the second half. Lewis had been a key cog in the Crimson Tide’s lineup, but Lee and company will have to press on without him.
In the girls game, possession was hard to come by, as the Lady Flyers were relentless on the attack.
The Tide and Lady Tiders will look to get back on track Tuesday night when they face off against the Southwood Cowboys and Lady Cowboys. The girls game will kick things off at 6 p.m.
