[September 13, 2012]  The LCHS boys soccer team lost their first game in two weeks when they fell to conference foe Springfield High on Tuesday night.

The Railers were down 2-0 at the half, and a key play that occurred 8 minutes into the second half would seal their fate. Junior defender Joey Olden was racing an opponent to the ball and shoved into the goal post. The ball wound up in the net for Springfield's third goal, and Olden left for the remainder of the game with a badly bruised leg. SHS scored two quick goals in succession to take a 5-0 lead.

However, the Railers then got more aggressive. Senior Kyle Klockenga was taken down in the penalty box, and Tommy Harris stepped up to net the penalty kick and make it 5-1. With 8 minutes left in the game, Harris scored again on a nice feed from Grant Cooper to make it 5-2. Two minutes after that, Hank Freed scored on an assist from Harris to make it 5-3. The Senators then rebounded for the final score of the night to make it 6-3.

For the Railers, Dalton Byrne recorded nine saves in the net.
