A North boys' soccer semifinal: Lewiston buries Edward Little

...“We played uncharacteristically I think, either nervous or anxious,” Lewiston coach Mike McGraw said. “But you got to give EL credit because they put some pressure on us that we hadn’t seen since the last time we played them. But their pressure (this time) was a lot more intense. We recovered, and then when Cooper got that goal — which I think was a very opportune time to use him because he’s very quick and he can score — it was a perfect time to get his first goal.”

Red Eddies coach Tim Mains said the opportunity came from a bad bounce for his team.

“Found our guy in the midfield off a goal kick, we get a mis-touch, and it went to their playmaker, (Ali),” Mains said. “We were man-marking him the whole game, and it just happened that we had a mis-touch and he found a little bit of space and played a perfect ball in behind the defense.”

The Blue Devils doubled their lead less than five minutes later. Hamza Ali’s corner kick from the right side bounced around in the box to Noralddin Othman, who put a shot out of the scrum into the back of the net.
