The Flyers used a strong defensive effort and got a clutch goal to beat the Rose Hill (Ky.) Royals 1-0 on Thursday in a soccer game.

“It was one of those games where we had numerous chances to score but we couldn’t find the back of the net,” said Flyers’ coach Dan Blair. “Overall the team played well.”

Eli Lewis scored the game’s only goal off a well-placed passing assist from Cole Willis.

St. Joseph (9-2-1) travels to New Boston at 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
