Janesville Craig’s boys soccer team hung tough with another ranked Big Eight Conference foe Tuesday night.
But No. 10-ranked Madison Memorial kept the Cougars at bay in a 3-0 victory at Craig.
Dominic Ramirez scored once in each half to help the Spartans pick up the road win.
“We had a few really close goal-scoring opportunities that we just didn’t capitalize on,” Craig coach Garrett McCabe said. “They were successful at beating us around the outside and finishing inside the 6-yard box. A few things we can correct before our last regular-season game.”
Ty Bienema made 10 saves for Craig, which plays at Madison East on Thursday.
“Special shout out to our seniors,” McCabe said. “I’m proud of everything they have accomplished.”
Craig will also learn its postseason seed after the coaches meet Wednesday night to sort out the bracket.
