WATERTOWN—The Mitchell High School girls soccer team fell 3-0 to Watertown on Thursday in Watertown.

No stats were available.

"I was impressed with the team's overall effort," said MHS assistant coach Courtney Dickson, who was filling in for head coach Bob Lemon for the second straight game. "For Watertown being a high-ranked team, (we) did really well."

Mitchell (3-4-1) plays Harrisburg at 2 p.m. on Saturday in Harrisburg.

MHS boys fall 4-0

In the boys soccer contest, Mitchell fell to Watertown 4-0.

The Arrows were up 1-0 at halftime and finished the game with eight shots, three on goal.

"Overall we balanced possession well. We moved the ball up, but never finished with power we needed to," MHS head coach Ken Novak said. "(The) Arrows had a lot of speed up top, and our defense did a good job of closing down some strong attacks. A few got through, and that's how the game goes."

Mitchell goalie Trevor Lambert had 18 saves and Novak said he was impressed with performances by Parker Roden and Lambert.

Novak also praised reserve players Beau Schoenfelder, Landon Peterson and Tanner Wenz.

"These three athletes first compete for 80 minutes for JV then play reserves for varsity," Novak said. "They don't get a lot of spotlight, but play a critical role. They get a work out every game night."

Mitchell (1-5-1) plays at Harrisburg at noon on Saturday in Harrisburg.
