The Muskegon Boys Varsity Soccer Team dropped their home opener 7-1 while hosting the visiting OV Cardinals.
OV opened the scoring midway through the first half, and held a decisive three goal lead at halftime.
Muskegon opened the second half with a goal in the second minute when Sebastian Cuevas was tripped inside the penalty box. His brother, Marco Cuevas calmly placed the ball in the lower corner, cutting the lead to two.
OV would regain the momentum as they scored five minutes later. They added three more in the second half.
“It’s certainly a disappointing way to start a season” commented Muskegon Coach Jeff Holmes. “We were missing a number of key players tonight, some game changers. We’ve got one under our belt now, and we have some areas we’ll address at practice before Thursday.”
Muskegon will visit Ravenna on Thursday evening.
