Print Article

HELENA — All the scoring came in the first half as Helena High handed Flathead its first loss of the Class AA boys soccer season with a 3-0 setback on Friday.

Flathead (4-1 overall, 2-1 Western AA) did not have a shot on goal in the match.

“We didn’t wake up from the bus (trip),” Flathead coach Zach Brenneman said. “We started very flat. It was more mental breakdowns on our part than a talent issue.”

Flathead plays at Helena Capital today at 11 a.m.

Glacier (2-3, 1-2) closed to within one on Parker Creer’s goal at 65 minutes.

“We have four, maybe five starters injured right now,” Glacier coach Ryan Billiet said. “After crosstown, we had some lingering injuries and a few that happened in training this week. At one point, we had six freshmen on the field (today).

“Our goal keeper looked fantastic tonight,” Billiet said of Andrew Lorenc.

Billiet was impressed his team battled back, “almost leveling the match in the end.”

Laurel answered with a goal four minutes later.

“We responded after the seventh minute,” Whitefish coach Roland Benedict said.

“The rest of the game was a 1-1 draw.
