Perhaps it seemed like a long shot for Navarre to beat Tate. At least on paper. The Aggies, after all, were unbeaten, and one of the top boys soccer teams in the area going into a showdown with the Raiders last Wednesday night at the Ashton Brosnaham Complex.
Yet, the Raiders didn’t back down, prevailing 2-1 in an intense and physical battle. All three goals were scored off penalty kicks. That includes the two that were punched in by Zyler Beckman.
