Warriors rally to beat Raiders, 3-2
Saturday's game against Henry Sibley couldn't have gotten off to a better start for the Hastings boys soccer team. The Raiders went up, 2-0, midway through the first half, and things looked promising.
From that point on, though, the Warriors took charge. Sibley ended up winning, 3-2, after scoring three unanswered first-half goals.
"We got too comfortable, and put it on auto-pilot a little bit," Hastings coach Shane Lanning said. "
The first Hastings goal was scored by Grant Simons, who was assisted by Keegan McIntosh.
The second Hastings goal was scored by Bailey Platson, assisted by Alex Lewanski.
Ian Johnson played in goal for Hastings.
Hastings lost to Park on Thursday, 4-1. The game was closer than the final score indicates, Lanning said.
With about 20 minutes to play, the game was tied 1-1. The Wolfpack then quickly added three goals in about five minutes to take a commanding lead and win.
The Hastings goal was scored by Kristian Sebion, who scored it on a penalty kick.
Hastings lost to White Bear Lake on Tuesday, 3-1. Again, the game was close well into the second half before the Bears added two quick goals to win it.
"That was one of those losses," Lanning said. "We were holding firm, then they scored a couple goals in the middle of the second half, and that was it."
Simons scored the Hastings goal.
Johnson was in goal for the Raiders.
