Soccer loses in shootout

The Quincy boys soccer team scored in the first five minutes on Saturday, but in the end fell to host Othello 3-2 in a shootout.

The Jacks (1-4) took a 1-0 lead after a penalty kick in the fifth minute.  Then two late first-half goals, one by each team, gave Quincy a 2-1 lead at the half.  The Huskies (5-0) knotted the game at 2-all in the 64th minute and forced a shootout.

This is where the host team dominated the match. Othello knocked in their first three penalty kicks, while Quincy missed its first three.
