AURORA—Beachwood’s season came to an end on Wednesday with a 3-0 setback to host Aurora in a rainy Division II sectional championship game.
The fifth-seeded Bison fought hard but the fourth-seeded Greenmen dominated possession of the ball for most of the game and limited Beachwood’s shots on goal.
“I honestly think that we gave everything we have,” Beachwood senior Ashley Perryman said after the loss. “It was a tough game, definitely tough conditions out here, but I think we gave everything we had. In that first half, it was a really good half. I think we did amazing this season and it showed here tonight.”
Aurora struck early with a Carlie Filkouski goal and opened up a 1-0 lead late in the first half. The Bison were able to keep themselves within striking distance and closed out the half down just one goal.
Aurora expanded its lead with a goal midway through the second half and capped off the win with a third goal with less than a minute left in the game.
“I felt like this season went well,” Perryman said. “Not exactly how we wanted with the number of ties we had this season, but we played well. This is almost the same team as last year and we definitely had a bond. We really played off each other and we definitely grew a lot.”
Beachwood finished the season with a record of 10-4-4.
