Norwalk boys can't hold on to lead in loss to Clear Fork

Clear Fork rallied for a 2-1 win over Norwalk in a Division II boys' soccer sectional tournament match Wednesday at the Norwalk Soccer Complex in Norwalk.

The Truckers finish the season at 6-8-3.

Norwalk took a 1-0 lead as Jordan Myers found the back of the net.

But in the second half, Clear Fork tied the match at the 30-minute mark and then scored the game-winning goal late.

"I was proud of them,'' Norwalk coach Paul Lamb said of his team. "They just fought and fought and fought. Jordan Duncan was outstanding in center-mid. We just didn't have enough offense.''

The Truckers had five shots on goal to the Colts' 11. Norwalk goaltender Evan Bader recorded two saves.

"I felt very good,'' Lamb said of the season. "I was pleased how the team bonded. We won and lost together. I felt really good about our determination. We had a few ups and downs.

"It's been a joy to coach these guys. We have a strong team coming back. We have four starters we'll be replacing.''

There were seven senior players on the roster for this season.
