Janesville Parker rally falls short, Craig shut out
Beloit Memorial High School’s boys soccer team made three first-half goals stand up here Tuesday night against Janesville Parker.
The Vikings came charging back from a 3-1 deficit, but the Purple Knights held on for a 3-2 nonconference victory.
Parker (0-9-1) cut Beloit’s lead to one on Carlos Sagrero’s goal at 52:56 of the second half but could not get another shot past goalie Ivan Perez.
“Beloit’s a quality team that beat us 10-0 earlier this season,” Parker coach Andy Holmes said. “We actually outshot them, 31-9, but could not finish. But I was pleased with the way we played.”
Parker hosts Sun Prairie in a Big Eight Conference game at 7 p.m. Thursday.
