Print Article

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. - A few defensive lapses down the stretch prevented Beloit Memorial's boys soccer team from carrying out upset plans against powerful Sun Prairie Thursday night in Big Eight action.

The Purple Knights allowed three goals in the final 22 minutes to lose 5-2.

The game was back and forth for much of the night. Bubacarr Bah of Sun Prairie and Danny Salazar of Beloit each scored as the game headed into the half tied 1-1. The Cardinals broke the tie in the second half on a goal by Kyle Hagerman, but Beloit answered with Andrew Montero scoring at the 64:39 mark on assists by Omar Munoz and Jonny Leon.

"We seemed to run out of gas a bit and made some tired mistakes that led to goals," Beloit head coach Brian Denu said. "I should have made substitutions earlier in the game to save our legs a bit. It's a learning process for all of us with a young team. We definitely will be able to take a lot away from tonight's loss and work at getting better next week."

Hagerman broke the tie at 68:17. Sam Kopotic made it 4-2 and Hagerman added his third goal at 76:47.

• NOTES: Bernardo Plascenciia assisted on Salazar's goal. ...Sun Prairie outshot Beloit only 15-13. ...Beloit goalie Dennis Aragon had six saves. Sun Prairie's Ryan Traut had eight.

• UP NEXT: Beloit Memorial hosts South Beloit at 6 p.m. Monday, The Knights also host Evansville at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Madison La Follette at 7 p.m. Thursday and then compete in Hononegah's Indian Cup in Rockford on Friday and Saturday.
