    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys soccer team played its best defensive game ever but lost to North Harrison 1-0 Thursday.
    “Their goal actually shouldn’t have been a goal,” said Tell City Coach Pat Jarboe. “One of our players accidentally knocked it in. He was trying to block it and it glanced off his shin guard and in.”
    That goal did not come until nearly 17 minutes into the second half. And Tell City finished with more shots on goal than the Cougars, 13 to 10.
