Sturgeon Bay scored three second-half goals to pull away from Gibraltar/Sevastopol, 4-0, Thursday night in a Packerland Conference high school boys soccer game in Sturgeon Bay.
"I thought we played an all right game" said Clippers coach Todd Maas. "There were some bright moments, but more not so good. We have played better as a team. Always room for improvement."
Jesse Mejia had two goals, and Joe Schriner-Schmitt and Robbie Hohlfelder had one each for the Clippers. Robert Desotelle and Mejia had assists.
Goalie Caleb Owens had five saves for the Clippers, who improved to 5-0 and have yet to allow a goal in conference play.
Vikings coach Joe Warner said his team seemed sluggish.
"I thought both teams came out flat in the first half; really conservative," said Warner. "I don't know what (Maas) said to his kids at halftime, but they came out firing in the second half and they made us pay for it. They got moving and we never really did."
Vikings goalie Brandt Bauldry had 12 saves.
? In a nonconference game Friday night, Racine Horlick shut out Sturgeon Bay, 3-0.
The Division 1 Rebels scored about two minutes into the game on a miscommunication between the Clippers' defenders, then extended their lead to 2-0 in the 48th minute when a Sturgeon Bay defender slipped and failed to clear the ball from their zone.
"They controlled the ball more than we did ? made us pay for our mistakes," Clippers coach Todd Maas said. "I like the way our kids played. Take away those two mishaps, it's only a 1-0 game. We had a couple good looks, just couldn't put them away."
Sturgeon Bay plays West Allis Hale at 10:30 a.m. today at The Prairie School in Racine.
