North Platte's Jack Kenny launches the ball into play.

North Platte High School boys' soccer coach Mary Elmshaeuser said that on Saturday her team did everything right against Columbus except not find the back of the net.

The Bulldogs fell 1-0 to the Discoverers at Bauer Field.

Elmshaeuser said that her team played well but it didn't translate onto the scoreboard.

"I like that we had 17 shots on goal but we need to find the goal," said Elmshaeuser. "We had good control of our possessions. But what we lacked was goals."

In the first half, NPHS (1-7) looked to go up 1-0 when Brady Mason beat Discoverer goalie Ben Trofholz. But Mason was ruled offside and the goal was nullified.

At around the 52nd minute, Columbus (8-3) scored the only goal of the contest on a breakaway by Nick Linder.

"That was off of a bad touch by our defense," said Elmshaeuser. "We have to work more on our touches."

North Platte couldn't answer back and Columbus came away with the win. Although Elmshaeuser said the result could have been better, she was pleased with the overall effort.

"I thought we possessed the ball and tranistioned well," she said.
