LOCATION: Schueler Field (Cincinnati, OH)
The Lions weren't able to find their offense early in the game. Finding themselves in a 0-2 deficit at halftime, they switched gears to stage a miraculous comeback. A team effort gave the Lions five goals in the second half to defeat UC Clermont.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
In the early minutes of the first half neither team was able to pull away. UC Clermont was able to make the first strike at the 32nd minute. The Bearcats were able to find the goal one more time leaving the Lions in a hole going into the half. Down 0-2 the Lions came fired up and ready to fight back early in the half. A quick goal by Seth Freppon (Cold Spring, KY / Newport Central Catholic) on a penalty kick in the 62nd minute brought the Lions within one point. The Lions were dominating the ball, controlling the field position leading to another goal by Joseph Glisson (Cincinnati, OH / Anderson). They would continue to find the back of the net with three more goals by Nathan Mueller (Trenton, Ohio / Edgewood), Colton Lipps (Cincinnati, OH / Northwest), and Brycen Evans (Moores Hills, IN / Lawrenceburg). Five unanswered goals in the second half left the Lions victorious after being down early in the game.
With 17 shots the Lions offense was able to fuel the tremendous comeback. Multiple athletes contributed but one standout, Colton Lipps, was able to score a goal and dish an assist to lead the offense. The Lions desire to fight back led them to find their way back into the match and defeat UC Clermont.
