The St. Joseph Flyers just never got their engines running.

The Flyers fell behind early and never recovered as they lost 5-2 to the New Boston Tigers Tuesday in a soccer game.

The Flyers trailed 2-0 at the half and 4-0 before they finally scored.

“We came out flat again and fell behind 2-0 at halftime,” said Flyers’ coach Mike Arrington. “In the second half, we allowed two more goals and four ourselves down 4-0 before we really started to play.”

Senior Joseph Payton finally got the Flyers on the scoreboard with a goal on a cross from freshman Peyton Adkins.

In the game’s waning minutes, freshman Dylan Arrington scored on a penalty kick for his first high school goal.

“I give a lot of credit to New Boston. They contested every ball and kept up on our heels most of the game. We are just going through some growing pains and I try to look at this in the long term,” said coach Arrington.

St. Joseph hosts Portsmouth Clay at 6 p.m. Thursday.
