Comets, Bulldogs end up tied
New London scores late goal
By Greg Seubert
It didn’t count in the Bay or North Eastern conference standings, but that didn’t matter to the New London and Waupaca boys’ soccer teams.
The Bulldogs and Comets met Sept. 9 for a nonconference matchup in New London and played to a 1-1 tie.
The game remained scoreless until Waupaca’s Riley Wahler beat New London goalkeeper Sam Jahnke with a penalty kick 24 minutes into the second half.
It looked like the Comets might return home with a 1-0 win, but Juan Vande Guchte tied the game off of Daniel Olea’s assist with 3:21 to go in the game.
Both teams will be in action Thursday, Sept. 16. New London will head to Seymour for a Bay Conference matchup with the Thunder, while Waupaca has a North Eastern Conference game in Wrightstown.
