Boys Soccer: Albert Lea cruises by PIZM

Mitch Acker tallied a late goal for the Pine Island/Zumbrota-Mazeppa boys soccer team, but it wasn't nearly enough in a 5-1 non-conference loss to Albert Lea Saturday.

Acker, Matt Smith and Colin Rucker each had two shots on goal for the Wildcats, but the rest of the team managed just three total. The Tigers, meanwhile, peppered PIZM goalie Brady Schoenfelder with 17 shots.

Varsity assistant coach Jeff Thompson commented, “Kyle Mitchell played very well tonight and Mitch Acker had a nice goal at the end of the game. We gave great effort tonight and keep improving, but Albert Lea out passed and out played us.”

The Wildcats (1-5) will head to La Crescent Tuesday.
