MADISON, Wis. — Beloit Memorial’s boys soccer team challenged Big Eight Conference-leading Madison Memorial before falling 3-1 Tuesday night.

The teams matched each other shot-for-shot during a scoreless first half as both goalkeepers were stellar.

The second half was much the same, but the Spartans finally broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute when they were awarded a penalty kick on a trip just inside the 18-yard box. Sean Surtees was able to bury a shot past Luis Pedroza.

Madison Memorial extended its lead to 2-0 in the 56th minute off a beautiful play culminating in Andy Anane finishing a header off of a cross. Beloit’s Austin Grover had Anane marked well, but the ball was placed in a perfect position.

“Definitely one of the best goals we have conceded all year,” Beloit head coach Brian Denu said.

From that point on, Beloit (13-6-3) had multiple looks on the Spartans’ net, but cashed in only once. Jose Barron ended the shutout and picked up his 29th goal of the season when he got loose in the box and was fed a great pass from Pedro Gonzalez in the 59th minute.

The Spartans made it a two-goal lead again in the 74th minute as an attempted clearance ricocheted off Nick Goetz and snuck past Pedroza for the 3-1 final.

“It was definitely one of the best played games I have ever been associated with at Beloit Memorial with two very good teams playing exceptional games,” Denu said. “I am very pleased with the way our team is playing as we wind down the regular season and get ready for tournament play.”

Beloit’s jayvees fell, 4-2.

The Knights’ final regular season home game is Thursday night at Jacobson Field against Southern Lakes Conference champion Delavan-Darien.

• BOYS VOLLEYBALL: Beloit Memorial won the first set 25-18, but Middleton stormed back to take the next three (25-21, 25-17, 25-16) at the Barkin Arena Tuesday night.

“We executed everything we wanted in the first game, but we couldn’t sustain it,” Beloit head coach Andre DeKok said.

Alec Podrasky led the Knights with 13 kills, two aces and 12 digs. Andres Oselio had 29 assists and two aces and Caleb Schober had the lone block kill.

Beloit’s jayvees lost, 2-1, but its freshmen won, 2-1.

• BOYS GOLF: The Hononegah Indians advanced to the sectionals by virtue of their third-place finish at the Woodstock (IL) Regional. 

Hononegah’s total of 337 was just three strokes behind second-place Crystal Lake Prairie Ridge. Crystal Lake Central took home the crown with a 328. 

Reid Anderson led the way for the Indians with an 80, four strokes behind medalist Paul Schlimm of Crystal Lake Central. Ryan Brolund was next with an 84, while Grayson Ege shot an 85. 

The sectionals will take place Monday at Marengo. 

• BOYS SOCCER: Hononegah’s Zach Moore scored the winning goal in the 64th minute to propel the Indians over visiting Harlem Huskies 2-1. Nick Stella had the other goal for Hononegah, scored in the eighth minute of the first half on a pass from Cody Green.
