May River boys soccer couldn’t convert on numerous scoring chances, and visiting James Island took advantage of a pair of second-half set pieces to claim a 2-0 road win over the Sharks in a key Region 7-4A matchup Friday.
The Sharks created numerous chances but couldn’t find the back of the net, leaving an opening for the Trojans. May River held the Trojans to one shot on goal in the first half, but James Island keeper Grayson Pedome made numerous great saves to keep the game scoreless at halftime.
The Trojans capitalized by scoring on set pieces in the 55th and 57th minutes, and May River had numerous attempts in the end but could not get anything past the keeper.
“Their keeper was phenomenal and made some great saves to keep the clean sheet,” May River coach Misael Garzon said. “They were very disciplined and solid defensively and made it hard for us to get in a rhythm offensively.”
May River keeper Brayden Garcia had three saves in the loss.
The Sharks (3-1, 0-1) travel to crosstown rival Bluffton on Tuesday for the Bluffton Derby.
