The Raider boys’ soccer team picked up a 2-1 road win at Woodbury last Thursday night, Sept. 15 before dropping a 3-1 decision to Eastview, Minn., Saturday morning at the middle school field.
Earlier last week, the Raiders came out on the short end of a 2-1 Big Rivers Conference score at Chippewa Falls.
The Raiders hosted Eau Claire Memorial Tuesday night, Sept. 20 and will host Menomonie this Thursday, Sept. 22, at 7 p.m. Saturday they head back across the border for a nonconference game against Tartan.
Last Thursday at Woodbury, Alex Schnobrich scored Hudson’s first goal of the game and Brandon Wulf tallied the game winner after making a long run to track down a cross from captain Rocky Harmon in a 2-1 Raider win.
“Great win against a strong team,” Hudson coach Chuck Bublitz said. “Big win for us.”
Saturday at home against Eastview, the Raiders trailed 2-0 at halftime before Ben Klundt scored on a header at the end to make the final 3-1.
“We couldn’t overcome two first half goals from Eastview’s center forward, an excellent player,” Bublitz said. “After hitting the post and narrowly missing a few other chances there was too much for us to overcome.”
Last Tuesday at Chippewa Falls, Harmon scored what Bublitz described as an “amazing” goal, beating four Cardinal defenders and firing a sharp shot into the net to tie the score in the 35th minute. But Chippewa scored two minutes later and held on for the 2-1 victory.
“We had chances to tie but couldn’t convert them,” Bublitz said.
