In it's first-ever match, the Port Clinton girls soccer team held a 1-0 lead in the second half against Edison Thursday night.
However, it lasted just 42 seconds as the Chargers tied the game to force a 1-1 tie.
Lyndsey Keck scored for Port Clinton at the 6:15 mark of the second half, but Edison's Austin Cech had the answer at the 6:15 mark on a direct free kick.
Edison keeper Rachel Kiley made 24 saves in net.
The Chargers are allowing too many scoring chances to go by in the first two games of the season — both ties — according to coach Randy Schmitke.
"I think the girls have played very hard, but we've had a lot of opportunities that have to learn to finish," Schmitke said. "Too many opportunities are passing, so we really need to learn to finish and turn the tide and get some wins.
"We're working very hard though, and defensively we're fairly organized."
Edison hosts Sandusky on Monday.
Sandusky 2, U. Sandusky 0
At Sandusky, defense was the difference for the Blue Streaks girls soccer team in a 2-0 non-conference win over Upper Sandusky Thursday night.
And in the early going of the season, the defense will have to be the difference according to coach Mark Fogg.
"Our offense is young yet, it's growing and I saw some positive things there," Fogg said. "But our defense will carry us early in the year, and their certainly not letting me down."
Freshman Bailey Smith scored both goals for the Streaks (2-0). The first came at the 30:09 mark of the first half off an assist from Ali Carter.
The second came at the 16:08 mark of the second half with the assist going to Brynne Sample.
Upper Sandusky held a 22-8 advantage in shots on goal over the Streaks, but goalkeeper Rachel Luttman and the defense had the answer as Luttman made 22 saves, 14 of which came in the second half.
"Our defense just really played well, especially in the second half when we were under a lot of fire," Fogg said. "Our speed on defense was the difference. Despite the shot difference, our defense kept getting great chances and I think that really frustrated them."
Sandusky hosts Lima Senior at 11 a.m. Saturday morning in the Greater Buckeye Conference.
