The Marathon High boys soccer team will try to get their winning streak back today at Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School after a 3-1 loss at home Monday.
The Dolphins (2-3) hosted the Spartans of Miami Country Day School and were able to keep the score tied 0-0 for the first half.
A minute into the third quarter, the Spartans scored off a penalty kick, coming back for another goal two minutes later.
Maintaining endurance during the second half is something the team has been working on, said coach James Murphy, who added his squad is becoming more comfortable as the season moves forward.
The Spartans scored their third goal with nine minutes to go in the game, but Rodrigo Avena made sure it wasn’t a shutout, scoring one for the Dolphins with under a minute to go.
“We were able to accomplish the things we’ve been working on, but in the second half it collapsed again,” Murphy said.
He’s optimistic about today’s game at Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School at 4 p.m., and a matchup Thursday in Miami against rival Falcons of Palmer Trinity School (6-0-1).
