The Zizzer JV ran their record to 2-0 on the season with a 4-0 victory over Lebanon on Tuesday. Lucas Shertz opened the scoring in the 13th minute with a shot from near the top of the box. Michael Howell doubled the Zizzers lead with a shot to the top corner in the 31st minute. Five minutes into the second half, Shertz picked up his second goal with a nice shot from about 15 yards out. Tommy Meyer finished the scoring in the twenty three minutes into the second half. A good team effort! Philip Sheridan and Zevi Whittingham shared the shutout in goal with Sheridan getting the win.

In the Varsity game, The Zizzers had a much improved effort over Monday. We created several chances early and Lebanon cleared a ball off the line that would have been a goal. It was Lebanon who would get the first goal. It came in the 32nd minute as a Zizzer defender raced back to stop the ball, but over ran it as the Lebanon player cut back and then fired a rocket into the far side of the goal. Twelve seconds into the second half, Caleb Harlow picked up his second goal of the game as the Zizzers didn’t attack the ball aggressively. Just three minutes later, Lebanon knocked in a rebound that the Zizzers didn’t clear out. Down 3-0 early in the second half, the Zizzers did not quit. They fought hard throughout the half. Just a minute after Lebanon’s third goal, the Zizzers were awarded a penalty kick. Seth Stiles scored to cut the lead to 3-1. In the 38th minute, the Zizzers again were awarded a penalty kick. This time it was Brody Bass who scored to make it 3-2. The Zizzers had some good chances. Lebanon cleared a couple of balls off the line that otherwise would have been goals and the Lebanon keeper made a couple of nice saves. Despite the loss, the Zizzers can keep their heads held high. The effort and teamwork were a marked improvement from the Greenwood game. We didn’t quit when things looked bad. That is what we want to see from this team. Keep working hard and good things will come.
