Boys soccer: Jesuit coach unhappy despite 3-1 win over Steinbrenner

TAMPA — In a tense, physical game Friday, Jesuit's fast-paced tactics were more effective than Steinbrenner's attempts at creative passing and ball control in a 3-1 victory.

"We played at very good pace in the first half but lost it in the early part of the second half," Jesuit coach Bob Bauman said. "Steinbrenner is a good team, but I felt we let them back in the game. We need to find our sense of urgency. At the beginning of the year, we had it."

Jesuit (17-3) took the lead 12 minutes in on a corner kick. The ball went to forward Tyler Hartlage. His backheel got past the goalkeeper to midfielder Joseph Metzger, who made it 1-0.

Steinbrenner (8-3-1) got back into the game in the second half when Jesuit misplayed a free kick, allowing the ball to bounce around in the box. Defender Austin Renz got to the loose ball to put it into the net.

But Jesuit got two goals from Brett Durrance from there. The first came as a result of midfielder Christopher Conlon bringing down a long pass with his chest and into the path of the Durrance, whose finish was partially blocked by the keeper before rolling into the net.

On his second, the junior beat two defenders then the keeper with a low shot into the corner.

"A couple times, they got through our defense because we had some mistakes in the midfield," Bauman said.

"We only had one more shot than they did. This game showed us some of things we still have to work on."
