Sugar River 3, Lake Mills 1
LAKE MILLS — The Raiders, ranked sixth in Division 3, scored three unanswered goals to pick up a big nonconference win on the road.
Trailing 1-0 in the first half, Jack Gentilli scored in the 39th minute off of a free kick from 18 yards out to even the score. Gentilli gave Sugar River the lead in the 58th minute off of a corner kick from Logan Winklepleck. In the 82nd minute, Jaden Kreklow found Milo Hoesly who put the ball in the net on one touch to seal the game.
Sugar River outshot the L-Cats (4-1-1, 2-1 Capitol) 13-5, which had given the Raiders (6-0, 3-0) their first deficit of the season. Gentilli and Lake Mills’ Noah Mock each received yellow cards. Raiders goalkeeper Julian Lutz had five saves.
“Tough capital conference game,” Sugar River coach Kyle Webber said. “Both teams had many great opportunities to score. Sugar River did a great job containing Lake Mills’ offensive threat.”
The Raiders host Wisconsin Dells (1-3-1) in New Glarus Tuesday.
