The Superior High School boys soccer team lost to the Proctor Rails 1-0 Thursday evening at the SHS soccer fields.
Taylor Ringdahl scored Proctor’s goal 5:48 into the game.
Superior had an excellent chance to tie the game up with 15 minutes remaining.
Matt O’Shaughnessy’s throw in made it to Noah Peterson, who kicked the ball off the cross bar. The ball then hit the goal line and the keeper’s back before getting covered up.
Connor Gray stopped 15 shots for the Spartans and Michael Petoletti had six saves for Proctor (2-2).
“It was a solid game; we played very well,” SHS coach Jack Hajewski said. “We had an excellent chance to tie it up. It could have gone either way.”
The Spartans play at Ashland Tuesday and Two Harbors Thursday. Both games begin at 4 p.m.
