The Agates boy’s soccer team started out its season in a rough patch, losing 4-1 to Hermantown.
Cam Sweeney scored the lone goal for the Agates (they were already down 3-0). Andrew Kragseth had 10 saves for the team.
On Monday, Two Harbors lost to Proctor in a hard fought game, 2-1.
In the first half the Rails punched in a couple goals while the Agates played most of the first half in its own defensive zone.
In the second half, Jon Nevala-Plagemann eventually ripped in a goal on an indirect kick from eight yards out. Alex Horoshak had the assist on the play.
After that, the Agates looked as though they had been reinvigorated as they spent almost the rest of the game in Proctors defensive zone, missing a few golden opportunities to score.
On Tuesday, the Agates won its first game of the season, 1-0 over Hibbing. Nevala-Plagemann scored an unassisted direct kick chip shot from about 35 yards out for Two Harbors in the second half to give the team the lead and they never looked back. Kragseth had nine saves for Two Harbors.
Two Harbors dominated possession-wise throughout the game.
The team’s next scheduled home game will be Sept. 15 at 5 p.m. against Cloquet-Esko-Carlton.
