So much for the home-field advantage whenever Warsaw and Canterbury meet on the soccer pitch.
T.J. Hofer scored a goal two minutes into the match and the Tigers (12-1-1) held on for a 1-0 victory at Canterbury on Tuesday.
We’ve played Canterbury for five years, Warsaw coach Scott Bauer said. We’ve won three at their place, and they’ve won two at our place.
And how does he explain the statistic?
I think my kids get excited going up to Canterbury and playing at their field – by the nature of their program. And Canterbury comes down to our place, and I think there’s a little extra motivation to take a match away from your opponent at their home.
Mike Yantz had the shutout in goal for the Tigers.
