Kernel soccer drops two to Brookings

Body: 

BROOKINGS—The Mitchell High School girls soccer team traveled to Brookings on Tuesday not having lost in its previous three games, but the Bobcats put an end to that streak with two goals in the first half that held firm in a 2-0 loss for the Kernels.

Mitchell kept even with Brookings in shots and even outshot the Bobcats 5-4 in the second half, but the Kernels weren't able to find the back of the net.

"We outshot them (in) the second half and had a couple of really good chances, but unfortunately we couldn't finish," MHS head coach Bob Lemon said. "The girls were disappointed because it was a game they felt they could have won."

Caroline Titze stopped 13 of the 15 shots aimed in her direction for Mitchell (3-3-1), which hosts Watertown at 4 p.m. on Thursday at Joe Quintal Field.

Boys soccer falls to Brookings

BROOKINGS—The Mitchell boys soccer team was unable to bring home a victory from Brookings either, as the Kernels fell 9-0 and are still in search of their first win this season.

"We continue to develop some of our young players in a variety of positions," MHS head coach Ken Novak said. "It's not easy playing in a season where wins are hard to come by—yet, these young men play every second on the clock."

Mitchell (0-6-1) hosts Watertown at 6 p.m. on Thursday at Joe Quintal Field.
