Trojans fall in makeup game

The Wood Memorial High School boys soccer team took on Shoals on Thursday in a makeup game and lost 4-0.

"I feel like we were the better team, but we got outhustled," said Trojans head coach Josh Stolz. "We didn't have much aggressiveness and I feel like we weren't mentally into the game. Anything Shoals could get to, they did. The guys were disappointed, but we have to play good soccer no matter who the opponent is."

Shoals' Jon Sukup scored less than 90 seconds into the contest to put Shoals up for good 1-0 before tallying a second-half hattrick to account for the entirety of Shoals' offense.

"He was a forward and he's a good right-footed player," Stolz said of Sukup. "Our defense played great, but they couldn't get him stopped."

The Trojans outshot Shoals 7-1 in the first half but were outshot 9-1 in the second half.

The Trojans take the field again on Saturday at Day school.
