Falls stuns kickers with comeback
Hamilton's varsity boys soccer team ended the season with a 4-3 loss against Menomonee Falls on Thursday in a WIAA Division 1 regional final, a game that seemed a far cry from the 1-0 win by Hamilton when the two teams met in the regular season.
The Chargers were ahead 3-1 in the match after Garrett Lee scored early in the second half, but Menomonee Falls scored three consecutive goals to overtake the Chargers.
Kay Olapo, Collin Dowling and Alex Eastman had the final goals of the match for the Indians.
"I was proud of how we had a never say no attitude and rallied despite going down twice two goals," Menomonee Falls head boys soccer coach Scott Stein said.
Ben Krolczyk scored the first two goals of the match for the Chargers, who ended up with a .500 record at 10-10-1.
The Chargers won the regional opener at home against Milwaukee Riverside on Oct. 15, 5-0.
Hamilton's schedule this season featured a number of talented programs, with highlights including a 0-0 tie against Brookfield East (the No. 1 team in Division 2) and a 1-0 loss to state power Marquette (No. 1 in D1 at the time).
