Boys soccer team keeps it close in Marion


MARION — The Galion Tigers boys soccer program traveled to Marion on Thursday to hit the pitch against Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference rival Marion Harding. The Tigers fought hard against the Presidents but came up short, 3-1.

Lucas Conner scored the lone goal for Galion, on an assist from Max Papenhausen.

The score was just 1-0 in favor of Marion at the half of the rainy match. That first goal wasn’t even scored until about three minutes remained. The Presidents were just too much for the Tigers in the second half on their way to the victory.

“The defensive line of Max Papenhausen, Landon Rose and Ethan Zeger did a good job of keeping Marion’s attack at bay,” said coach John Stewart in an e-mail.

Stephen Thompson was once again the goalkeeper for Galion on the night and finished with nine total saves.

The Tigers will be in action again on Wednesday Oct..5 when they take on Highland in league play.
