Houlton Shuts-Out Lee Academy Plus Tuesday’s Busy Schedule
Monday Nigh Soccer in Primetime
The Houlton Shires hosted Lee Academy, defending class D State Champions, in high school boys' soccer on Monday night. Houlton/Greater Houlton Christian Academy was looking to make it two wins in a row after they defeated George Stevens Academy on Saturday by a score of 2-0.
Cody Johnston of Houlton/GHCA scored off of a direct kick 5 minutes into the game. The remainder of the half saw both teams exchange scoring opportunities with Lee Academy coming up with a number of huge saves in net. Johnston's goal would prove to be the only one of the game and Houlton picked up a 1-0 victory over Lee.
