Lions learn lessons during tourney run
LA GRANGE – Lyons Township boys soccer got a taste of playoff soccer last week in the Pepsi Showdown and is hoping to learn from the experience.
The Lions fell down three goals to Lane Tech in the quarterfinal of the tournament Thursday in La Grange before rallying late in a 3-2 loss. The late comeback bid wasn’t successful, but it was clear from the emotion on the field that the Lions wanted to defend their tournament title.
“The single elimination format allows you to feel what it’s like in that state tournament and understand that it’s finalized as that buzzer gets to zeros,” LT coach Paul Labbato said. “Our kids are kind of feeling like it’s the end of the season. We have big games coming up. Hinsdale Central is going to be in front of 1,500 people at south campus. We can’t hang our season like it’s over.”
