Knights soccer unlucky against Hampshire

By on September 11, 2009

It was a tale of two halves on Saturday up in Burlington.

Unfortunately, Knights soccer didn’t get the ending it was looking for.

Giving up three quick goals to Hampshire, the Knights fell to the Whip-purs by a 3-1 final.

The loss sent the Knights to sixth place in the annual Burlington Central Invite, after finishing second a year ago. The Knights are now 1-3-1 as they continue to search for a winning formula.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve had to say 1-3-1,” KHS coach Scott Parillo said. “That’s tough. I know we’ve got the talent. We’re just not gelling, but we’re close. It’s OK that were struggling right now, as long as we’re not struggling at the end of the season. “

The goal came when Chad Swieca scored on a feed from Jordan Escobedo with 35:32 remaining in the match. The first half of the contest occurred under foggy conditions.
