The Mayfield Cardinals dropped another heart breaker on Tuesday night, falling to the Murray Tigers 2-0 in the first round of the All “A” Classic in Murray, Kentucky.
The Cardinals followed up their 3-2 loss to Calloway County on Monday night with yet another resilient performance that once again came up short.
Despite surrendering two goals to the Tigers, senior goalkeeper Diego Juarez kept the Cardinals within striking distance up until the final whistle, stopping multiple chances at the net early on.
Murray junior forward Trey Boggess connected on the Tigers’ two goals against the Cardinals, one coming in the 12th minute and the other in the 77th.
Mayfield head coach Luis Fabian said he believes his team playing on back to back nights had its effects but in the end he was proud of their fight.
“Overall I think we played well,” Fabian said. “We played last night and we were tired but I want to give credit to Murray, they’re a really good team and had fresh legs. I think we played a better second half but we just couldn’t get the chances we wanted to.”
The Cardinals drop to 2-2 on the season following Tuesday night’s loss but will have a chance to rebound this Thursday when they host Lyon County at 7:00 p.m.
