Lima Temple 2, Lehman 0
LIMA — Lehman’s hopes for at least a share of the Western Ohio soccer League title fell by the wayside Thursday in a 2-0 loss to Lima Temple Christian in boys soccer action.
The loss left the Cavaliers at 5-3-0 in the WOSL and 5-8-1 overall heading into a home game Tuesday against Botkins.
The game was scoreless at the half, but Lima Temple’s Cameron Worsham put one in on a cross to give the hosts a 1-0 lead. Temple added a clinching goal late.
“We’re certainly frustrated by our offensive output this week, but we can make some personnel and tactical adjustments as we prepare for the final week and the playoffs,” said Lehman coach Tom Wiseman. “The work rate was there, but we got worn down by not stopping their transition game and did not take advantage of our scoring opportunities.”
