Lions fall to KC in opener
STRATTANVILLE — Karns City took a 2-0 halftime lead before scoring three second half tallies en route to a 5-1 victory over the Clarion-Limestone Lions soccer team in the opening game at the C-L Sports Complex Monday night.
Dakota King scored a hat trick for the Gremlins while Owen Colwell and Luke Anderson added one goal each.
“Playing a team like Karns City gives us a chance to see where we’re at,” said C-L head coach Don Montgomery. “I’m not unhappy with our performance as I think we’ll be fine. We’re in a good place.”
The bright spot for C-L is that Bailee Verdill scored with 1:37 left to spoil the shutout bid.

Now 4-0 going into this weekend’s bye week, the juniors and seniors are off until Sept. 26 at Karns City. The seniors (1-3) received a forfeit win due to C-L not having a team.
