The Oskaloosa Boys Soccer team suffered a 2-1 loss at Carlisle yesterday in the opening round of the Class 2A Substate Tournament, a game you heard on 99.5 FM/740 AM KMZN and radiokmzn.com. Oskaloosa freshman Nicholas Walter scored the game’s first goal off an assist from Connor Swim on a beautiful cross from the left corner a little over 14 minutes into the first half. Oskaloosa held that 1-0 lead until Carlisle scored the equalizer with 7:35 left in the second half. No one added to that for either team and after 80 minutes of soccer, regulation ended in a 1-1 tie. Both teams then fought through two 10 minute overtime periods with no additional scores forcing a penalty kick shootout where each team gets up to five penalty kicks to decide a winner. Carlisle found the back of the net on each of their first four while Oskaloosa scored on just one of their first three giving Carlisle a 2-1 win. Oskaloosa ends their season at 4-13 overall.
