COEUR d’ALENE — Carson Jacobsen’s goal in the 65th minute was the difference for the visiting Post Falls Trojans in a 4-3 win over the Lake City Timberwolves in 5A Inland Empire League play at the Irma Anderl Soccer Complex.
“We definitely came out and set the pace early on,” Post Falls coach Gabe Lawson said. “Lake City stepped up the pressure in the second half, and our back line had some difficulty dealing with the press. Even though we had some issues, we found a way to keep the score the way we wanted it. Sometimes, in this portion of the league and being on the road, you’ve got to find a way to win and we did that tonight.”
Alex Lopez scored two goals in the first half for league-leading Post Falls (7-0, 3-0 5A IEL), which hosts Moscow on Thursday.
Ty Shaw scored off the second half kickoff for Lake City (5-2-2, 1-2), which hosts Lakeland tonight at 6 on the school’s football field.
“We came out flat and allowed Post Falls to punish us and we found ourselves down 0-3 in the first 15 minutes,” Lake City coach Alan Rich said. “Most teams would have just caved, but the character of the team was more evident in any previous game this season, and we clawed back. I’m proud of the guys for responding positively to a lot of things we discussed during Monday’s training session.”
