The following is a release from Hazen Boys Soccer:

Hazen varsity soccer mounted two first half comebacks, but couldn’t get a third in a 3-2 loss to Kentwood April 17.

Hazen spotted Kentwood a goal early on a PK, but Kale Soares free kick tied it at 20 minutes.

Kentwood scored again before Sam Holbrook scored on a Drew Wilson assist to head into the break 2-2.

Kentwood got the game winner in the second and held on for the win. Hazen Coach Ken Matthews isn’t ready to throw in the towel yet.

“Another tough loss for us tonight,” he said. “But we’ve got four games to go and the playoffs are still there for us.”

Four games mean a potential of 12 points in the league table. And, the difference after Tuesday’s matches between the league’s first place and last place team is 11 points. Those next four games are against teams easily within striking distance of the Highlanders and the playoffs.

“It’s not like we’re getting blown out in games. Tahoma is in first place and we’ve lost two one goal games to them. Kentwood is in second and we’re 1-1 this season against them. I like our chances in these next four,” Matthews said.

Keeper Nathan McClane was Man of the Match.

JV came back from an 0-2 deficit to tie the game on goals from Miguel Matom and Edgar Garcia. The assists came from Rocco DeSimone and Eric Schroeder.

Zach Knott was Man of the Match.
