It was a tale of two halves on Saturday up in Burlington.
Unfortunately, Knights soccer didnâ€™t get the ending it was looking for.
Giving up three quick goals to Hampshire, the Knights fell to the Whip-purs by a 3-1 final.
The loss sent the Knights to sixth place in the annual Burlington Central Invite, after finishing second a year ago. The Knights are now 1-3-1 as they continue to search for a winning formula.
â€œItâ€™s been a long time since Iâ€™ve had to say 1-3-1,â€ KHS coach Scott Parillo said. â€œThatâ€™s tough. I know weâ€™ve got the talent. Weâ€™re just not gelling, but weâ€™re close. Itâ€™s OK that were struggling right now, as long as weâ€™re not struggling at the end of the season. â€œ
The goal came when Chad Swieca scored on a feed from Jordan Escobedo with 35:32 remaining in the match. The first half of the contest occurred under foggy conditions.
