FISHER - Opportunities to score were endless during Monday’s soccer matchup between Fisher-GCMS and the visiting Iroquois West Raiders.

Nevertheless, neither side could find a way to get past the goalkeeper, as the two wound up tying the scoreless match and going home empty-handed.

“My message was, 'Way to play tough and give yourselves a chance to win,'” Bunnies coach Levi Horsch said after the disappointment of zero scoring from either squad. “I liked that we had multiple chances to score. I thought we could have finished a couple. Overall, I was very pleased with how the team created opportunities.”

While Fisher-GCMS had some creative offense, the defense ultimately impressed Horsch the most.

“I thought they played really strong and didn't give Iroquois West any great looks on goal,” he said.

Caleb Bleich and Tyler Ricks each had two shots on goal, followed by one each from Caleb Pulley, Graham Voelker and Jeremy Steidinger.

But a number of other one-on-one matchups almost led to clear shots on goal if not for last second defensive members stepping in.

Senior Jake Brewer had five keeper saves while the Bunnies’ forwards and defensemen were able to keep the ball on the Raiders’ side of the field a good portion of the game.

With the tie, Fisher-GCMS moves to 3-7-2 on the season.
