Mason boys have not lost to a team from Ohio in the past two years and finishes the 2022 season as the undisputed #1 team in Ohio.

Next up, Mason boys soccer will play an away game at Moeller on Saturday, Aug. 27th.
|8/27||@ Moeller @ 5:00||tied||0-0||1-0-1||0-0||
Two of the top teams in the Cincy area battled on the pitch this past Saturday. Mason visited Moeller and the pair battled to a 0-0 tie. It was a great early non-contest test for the Mason Boys. Coming into the game with Moeller (#1) and Mason (#2) in the city there was a lot of excitement and energy from both teams plus a great crowd (1200-1500 fans).
This was a fun match for all to see, an open back-and-forth game. The Mason Comets had several good opportunities for a goal, one coming about 15 min into the game where Luke Brogan found Brian Gorksi in behind which caught the Moeller off his line and Gorksi was unfortunate to hit the post. A very similar chance came in the second half where Marcos Neto found Gorksi again to beat the GK but several Moeller defenders swarmed and we hit the post again. Also, later in the second half off of a long throw by Grady Johnson Marcos Neto scored a goal that was called back due to a foul on the GK.
The coaching staff was very proud of the intensity, grit, and fight of all the boys. We felt we were dominant in each phase of the game but lacked clinical execution. The emotion of the game forced us to play rushed times and not always find the solutions we looking for but none this less a great test for us this early in the season. Finished the game with a total of 8 total shouts and another shutout credited to Zach Cochran and the defense!
