The Wabash boys soccer team fell to Tippecanoe Valley 4-3 Tuesday.
It was a hot night for a wide-open, up-and-down the field game, but that’s how they played it. Wabash found themselves down 2 goals in the first 15 minutes after Valley made the most of their limited scoring opportunities in the first half. Wabash came back in the first half to even the score on goals by Kolton Wilson and Troy Guenin-Hodson.
Coming out of halftime, Wabash did a nice job building their attack in the middle third of the field. Valley continued to counterattack effectively. The Wabash press paid off when Andrew Dinkins scored his first goal of the season of a pass from Solomon France. Valley responded quickly after a defensive letdown to tie the game with 9 minutes to go. Wabash continued to push for the game-winner, but a Valley counterattack in the last 90 seconds was awarded a penalty kick yielding the final goal of the match.
