JACKSON - The Jackson Ironmen soccer team scored a goal early and held on for a 1-1 tie against Miami Trace in a Frontier Athletic Conference soccer match on Tuesday, Oct. 2 at Alumni Stadium.
Isaac Kuhn scored with 38:49 left in the first half off a cross from Nolan Haislop to give Jackson a 1-0 lead.
Miami Trace's Caleb Perry, however, answered with a goal off a free kick with 24:55 remaining.
That is how things stood at the half.
"This was an interesting game. We came off real quick, and then we kind of let off," said Jackson head coach Lee Lord. "For the rest of the first half, I thought they took it to us.
"The second half, we played a little better. I think we got a little fire and I thought the officials let things go a little and it turned physical."
The Ironmen, however, had a chance to go ahead late in the second half on an indirect kick by Haislop, but goalkeeper Justin Shoemaker up with the save to keep the game tied.
"That is actually a tough free quick because he was so close. It was an indirect so it has to be touched first but Collin and Nolan did really well on it but it just didn't fall for us," Lord said.
Shoemaker and Jackson's Ty Broermann combined for three saves.
Jackson outshot Miami Trace 7-5, including a 3-2 advantage in shots on goal. The Ironmen also held a 6-4 edge in corner kicks. They also committed 10 fouls, which included two yellow cards issued, while Miami Trace had 13 fouls with four yellow cards and a soft red.
