Multiple Teams · Homewood Soccer Loses to Pelham

The Patriots varsity boys soccer team lost 2-1 to 6A rival Pelham Panthers on Tuesday night. On a rain soaked night, the Patriots came out firing, but missed several opportunities to score in the opening half.  With under 5 minutes to play in the first half, the Patriots’ defense faltered and surrendered 2 goals.  As the first half opened the Patriots scored on the first few minutes as Ryan Hepp put in a deflection off the goalkeeper from his own penalty try.  The 2-1 score would stand for the rest if the game.  Both Homewood and Pelham missed several opportunities to score.  Homewood will have a chance to rebound in a game at John Carroll on Thursday.
