Boys Soccer: Huskies blank Tigers 3-0

The end of the first week of school, the first home football game of the season on Friday night, above-average temperatures and a Saturday morning soccer game proved to be a bad combination for the Tigers in a 3-0 loss at Owatonna.

"The boys faced some tough circumstances," coach Julian Buss said, "but we had our chances. It is what it is.

"Owatonna is certainly in position to be a top-seeded team in Section 1. Their forwards challenged our defense and were good getting second and third shots as well."

Most of the Farmington scoring opportunities came in the early going but none translated to goals and the teams hit intermission in a scoreless tie.

The Huskies put the game away after the break, netting all three scores in a 10-minute span midway through the second half.

Sophomore goaltender Jake Agnew kept busy, finishing the day with 13 saves. The three goals are the most given up by Agnew and the defense in six games this season.

The loss dropped Farmington's season record to 3-2-1.

The Tigers don't have much time to dwell on the loss. Monday Burnsville pays a visit to Tiger Stadium for another non-conference game.
