A tough-luck season came to an end Tuesday night for the Janesville Craig boys soccer team.


Eric Howell scored off a free kick with just under three minutes to play to lift Stoughton to a 2-1 win over the Cougars in a WIAA Division 1 regional semifinal game.


Stoughton will play at Lake Geneva Badger on Thursday night, while Craig High finished at 7-12 overall.


“We were close on a couple of shots but couldn’t convert, and that was the story for us all season long,” Craig first-year coach Charles Friedrich said.


“But every team we played at home this year, whether they were ranked or not, they knew they were going to be in for a battle right down to the end. Hopefully, we can build off that. We’re still a pretty young team.”


Craig’s Jesse Davila tied the game on an unassisted goal in the 62nd minute, but the Vikings answered late on Howell’s goal off a free kick.

“They were the best team we saw all year,” Parker coach Andy Holmes said. “And that was without their best player, who was called up to the US Junior National Team.


“I see them going far in the tournament because they have good players at every position.


Henrik Egly and Jesus Oseguera each had hat tricks to lead Tremper, which will host Racine Park on Thursday in a regional final game.
