Crook County boys soccer falls to 0-5 after loss to The Dalles
The Crook County Cowboy soccer team continues to struggle in the second half of matches.
As has happened several times this season, the Cowboys took an early lead on Tuesday at The Dalles, only to see that lead slip away as The Dalles came back in the second half for a 3-1 victory over Crook County.
"Logan Matthews scored in the first five minutes to put us up early, but we struggled to find the back of the net the rest of the way," Crook County head coach Bryan Housley said. "The Cowboys still struggle to find their rhythm in the second half."
Crook County had numerous chances to score again in the first half, but were unable to capitalize. The Dalles finally tied the match late in the first half, then scored a pair of goals in the second half to pull away for the win.
With the victory, The Dalles improved their record to 1-0 in Intermountain Conference play and 2-2-1 overall, while Crook County fell to 0-1 in league play and 0-5 overall.
The Cowboys host a tough Hood River Valley, 1-0, 3-1-1, tonight at 5:30 p.m., then travel to Pendleton, 0-1, 1-0, on Thursday for a 4:30 p.m. match.
