It was a tale of two halves for the Lutheran High Soccer team as they hosted the Universal City First Baptist Eagles in a district contest. Each team did all their scoring in one half but it was the Mustangs who had the better half and ended up pulling out the win.
Christian Chapin kicked off the scoring for the Mustangs with a goal in the 14th minute off an assist by Ethan Maller. Maller would score the next two goals later in the half with the first being off an assist by Alex Daovan. With minutes remaining in the half, Daovan would score a goal of his own off an assist by Korbyn Raesch to give the Mustangs a 4-0 lead at the break.
In the second half, the script was flipped as the Mustangs would not score but the Eagles would tally three goals. The last goal came with 5 minutes to go, but it wouldn’t be enough as the Mustangs would hold on for the 4-3 win.
Lutheran (2-3) will be home to take on Legacy Christian (2-2). The Mustang were defeated by Legacy Christian in the first game of the season 2-1.
