“We are continuing to improve despite injuries,” Lions coach Paul Buehler said. “Our biggest impact players (Tuesday) were Joel Morris of course and Hugh Harwood at the central midfield.”
Adam Tedford opened scoring at 12:00 of the first half.
Seton Catholic got in transition down the field. Tedford beat a few defenders in the box, blasting a nice shot to the corner.
After a scramble for a ball served in by Damien Gay, Morris tied the game at 1-all with 28 minutes remaining in the second half.
“Tedford and Baugh had solid games, and (Keagen) Briggs made some very nice saves,” Buehler said. “Seton is a fast, experienced team that can come at you in many ways.”
Justin LaPier made nine saves for Elizabethtown-Lewis, while Briggs made eight stops for the Knights.
