FREEPORT — Though the teams were a combined 2-11-2, Wednesday’s Western Maine Conference boys soccer game between Freeport and Poland was anything but a ho-hum affair.
The difference in the host Falcons’ 4-2 win was that the Knights (1-6-1) made a couple of crucial miscues in the first half which led to a 2-0 Freeport lead at the break. Poland played catch-up the rest of the way.
“I think that we’re much better than our record,” said Poland coach Kris Wright in his fourth year. “We’ve had some unlucky breaks, which quite honestly, is the story of our season. If we could eliminate the stupid goals, the goals where we made some error in judgment, or a lack of a decision to make a save on it, I think we would have a better record.
