Red Wing keeper Keegyn McNamee did his best to give his team a chance to beat Rochester Mayo by saving 15 out of 18 shot attempts, but the Wingers couldn’t find a way to score a goal and got shut out, 3-0, on Thursday.

The two teams played to a scoreless tie through halftime, but Gabriel Gauthier, Jibril Muse and Daliso Chitulangoma each scored a goal in the second half for Mayo.

Red Wing put five shots on goal.

Red Wing, 0-4 (0-3 Big Nine), will try for its first win of the season on Tuesday when it travels to Lake City.

Tuesday

Mankato West 4, Red Wing 2

The Red Wing boys' soccer team traveled to Mankato West on Tuesday seekings its first win of the season, but it couldn't overcome an early deficit and fell to the Scarlets, 4-2.

Mankato West built an early 2-0 lead when Noah Morgan (assist by Erick Fuentes) scored a goal with just over seven minutes remaining in the first half to trim the lead to one. A penalty kick with 4:55 remaining in the first half gave the Scarlets a two-goal edge going into the break, however.

Barrent Blaney scored to put the Wingers back in the game with the score, 3-2, but Andrew Else of Mankato West iced the game with his second goal of the day.
