RICHLAND CENTER 1, RACINE LUTHERAN 0 (SO): It was one of the most impressive defensive efforts of the season for the Crusaders, but after a scoreless tie and two 10-minute overtimes, the Crusaders lost on penalty kicks to Richland Center in a WIAA Division 4 regional quarterfinal at Pershing Park.

Lutheran (1-17-1) had its chances, especially around the 60th minute, when Brent Ogden had two successive shots on goal. The first was a header that was knocked down by Richland Center’s goalkeeper and the second attempt seconds later was pushed wide of the net by the goalkeeper.

Scooter Molbeck, Kody Banse and Jose Sanchez scored goals in the shootout for Lutheran. The Crusaders were led defensively by Austin Ortiz, Ogden, T.J. Christensen and Will Schuessler.

“It was awesome,” Lutheran coach Kevin McNamara said. “The back line played well and, as a team, we played really well defensively.”
