NEW BOSON — It might have been soccer, but the St. Joseph Flyers threw a curve at New Boston.

Jacob Clark scored the game’s lone goal and the Flyers used a strong defensive effort to blank the Tigers 1-0 Tuesday.

Flyers’ coach Mike Balestra said the Flyers have instituted a new defensive scheme that led to a strong defensive effort in posting a second straight shutout.

“This was a team effort and all the boys played well. We are using a new system of play this year and we are starting to understand it more,” said Balestra.

“Defenders Jacob Clark, Chris Lewis, Trey Young and Clay Wills were outstanding. Midfielders Dyland Arrington, Wulf Goheen and Zach McGraw played well defensively as well.”

Goalkeeper Joey Bush had 10 saves for the Flyers (2-1-1).

St. Joseph had 18 shots on goal, four corner kicks and seven offside penalties. New Boston had 17 shots on goal, eight corner kicks and one offside penalty.
