East edges Craig soccer team
The Purgolders’ Ribiera Matheus scored the only goal six minutes into the second half.
“We defended really well,” Craig coach Dave Adler said. “But we made a crucial mistake on the winning goal.”
Despite the slip, Adler said the Cougars did a good job against the conference’s second-place team.
“We played well enough for a tie,” Adler said. “East is a very good team, and Matheus is probably one of the top midfielders around.’’
Craig (3-9-2, 3-3-1) hosts Madison West at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
