PARK CITY — Wichita B-52s coach Larry Inlow had identified what his team was doing wrong after its early January shutout loss to Dallas at home. Despite a 3-6 record at the time, Inlow knew his team could be a top team in the Professional Arena Soccer League, even without proof of wins.
The Wichita B-52s lost 6-5 in an overtime shootout to the Hidalgo La Fiera on Saturday night at Hartman Arena in what B-52s coach Larry Inlow described as one of the strangest games he has ever been a part of in terms of refereeing.
Chris Lemons keeps finding opportunities to play soccer in Wichita, and though he has recently contemplated retirement, the B-52s defender has found it difficult to say no to earning money for something he’d be doing anyway.
Midfielder Matt Clare scored the winning goal with just under six minutes left in the game on an assist by Alex Mosely, giving the Wichita B-52s a 9-8 win over Illinois in the indoor soccer team’s home-opener Saturday night at Hartman Arena.
