IHCC men’s soccer improves intensity; falls to Wentworth Academy

For a young Warrior squad with several soccer players trying to adjust to a new level of the game, the conditions were just one more obstacle to overcome.

“This is all very much an eye-opener to our kids,” Siegle said. “Soccer is a long game. There are lots of changes to pace of the game and lot of changes to the flow of the game. You add those factors to the conditions and it seemed like, once we gave up that first goal, we had a letdown that took us out of our game a little bit.”

That goal from Padua put IHCC behind 1-0, but the Warriors kept fighting and had a few opportunities to even the match. Sebastian Carrion, who had five shots to lead IHCC in the contest, put on a strike with under 10 minutes left that was stopped right at the goal by Cartano that would have evened the contest.

Wentworth (1-1) then put the game away minutes later. Mandino broke away to put home the clinching goal as IHCC players seemed to run out of gas out after a much better effort in its second match.

“I just didn’t like the way we closed out the match in those final couple of minutes, but I’m happy we made progress from our first match to our second one,” Siegle said. “I’m positive we’re going in the right direction, but we’ve just got a lot of stuff we have to work on before regional play begins.”

Indian Hills (0-2) is off until Friday evening when the Warriors travel to Carl Sandburg for its first road contest of the season at 6:30 p.m.
