The Price Soccer Club U15 and U19 boys teams both opened their season this weekend with victories. The U15s hosted Marshfield on Saturday and won a thrilling contest 4-3. Shawn Brown began the scoring for the home team with an assist by Harrison Fuhr. Marshfield countered with two goals of their own before Brown leveled the score with his second goal. The teams went into halftime tied 2-2.
In the second half, Price Soccer Club’s Jed Miller sliced through the Marshfield defense and found himself one on one with the Marshfield goalie. Miller calmly slid his shot past him into the net to put Price in the lead. After Marshfield again evened the score, Fuhr assisted Brown for the last goal of the day and Price Soccer held on to win 4-3.
The U19s traveled to Rice Lake where they were scheduled to play LaCrosse and the host team as part of the Western Wisconsin Classic Soccer League. The Price Soccer U19s consist of the U15 team, plus six players ages 16-19. In the first half against LaCrosse, a foul by LaCrosse led to Price Soccer being awarded a free kick 45 yards from goal. John Szwec stepped up to the ball and curved it into the penalty box where Kennie Hoffman met it with his head and redirected it into the goal. Solid defensive play by Tristan Krause, Cole Vyskocil and goalkeeper Tyler Grigsby helped the Price team hold onto their lead and secure a victory in their opening game of the season. Lightning caused the cancellation of the second game.
This Saturday the U15s host Plymouth at 2 p.m., and on Sunday the U19s will travel to LaCrosse to play Richland Center and Wisconsin Rapids.
