As Valley closed out their regular season at Laville tonight, they knew it would take two full halves of tough soccer to win. However, in a strange similarity to the game two night ago against Argos, Valley played one excellent half and one half where they struggled. It resulted in a 4-1 loss to the Lancers.
Valley controlled the first half and led 1-0 at the intermission on the strength of a Christian Ramirez goal. But, following Laville’s senior night celebration at halftime, the Lancers took command of the game and dominated the second half. The sharp play Valley displayed in the first half, disappeared and Laville pulled away with the win, 4-1.
Valley concluded it’s regular season with a fine third place finish in the TRC, (4-2). Over-all the Vikings finish 6-9-1. Next up for Valley is the sectional opener against Culver Academy at Culver’s home field Monday Night at 7 PM.
