“We didn’t play bad, we just couldn’t find the net,” said Flyers’ coach Mike Balestra. “We got off to a slow start and never got going. And Fairland played well tonight.”

St. Joseph (5-3-1) took a 1-0 first half lead on a goal by Peyton Adkins. The second goal was by Dylan Arrington in the second half.

Flyers’ goalkeeper Joey Bush had 15 saves.
