 Lewistown’s U19, U15 and U10 soccer teams struggled with losses over the weekend, but the U12s dominated.

Lewistown Football Club had a tough weekend, losing both games and competing with only 10 players. 

The first game against Laurel started with the opponents scoring first. LFC answered with Jaden Flugge dribbling past the defenders and shooting off the right upright. The ball deflected back and Flugge shot it again through the goalkeeper’s legs for a goal. In the second half, Laurel scored three more, defeating LFC 4-1.

The team played Miles City next and, again, the opponents scored first. LFC responded when Flugge was fouled in the goal box and he scored off a penalty kick, but Miles City ended up defeating LFC 5-1.

LFC is home this weekend, playing Big Timber at 10 a.m. and Havre at 4 p.m. The team will honor its six seniors. Members of the community are encouraged to come out and cheer them on at Symmes Park. Admission is free to all the games.

Bullets 0-2 in Livingston

With two of their teammates sidelined with concussions and a few more falling ill, the Lewistown Bullets Under-15 team struggled in Livingston last weekend without any subs and lost to Butte, 3-1 and Red Lodge, 5-3. Although Cooper Birdwell, Jalen Robinson and Tommy Brandon did a fine job of filling in for the normal goalkeepers, it wasn’t enough to capture a win.

The U15 Bullets will play in Sidney this Saturday, May 13. They will play Sidney at 10 a.m. and Miles City at 1 p.m. 

U12 Bullets 

win in Bozeman

The U12 Bullets played in Bozeman last weekend, winning both games. Royce Robinson, Kieran Netburn, Parker Miner and Justin Maier all scored goals to help defeat Livingston, 7-5 and Big Sky, 7-4.

U10 team falls 

to Helena, Laurel

Our youngest team – those under 10 years old - lost both their contests, 2-8 against Helena and 1-5 against Laurel. Emmett Netburn, Liam Catron and Rachel Comer scored goals.

The U12 and U10 Bullets will travel to Livingston this weekend to play teams from Helena, Livingston, Laurel, and Bozeman.
