SOCCER:

The Manson Lady Trojan soccer team fell to Bridgeport 2-0 on Tuesday evening.  The Bridgeport goals coming after two goalkeeping mistakes at a time in the game where the run of play was relatively even.  Manson played well and created a number of scoring opportunities including a penalty kick, but could not finish when it mattered most.  The two first half conceded goals did not deter the Lady Trojans from pressing on to get back in the game but in the end fell to another disappointing loss.  The next game is at Tonasket on Thursday October 19th.
