Clear Lake boys, girls shut out

It was not a Friday to remember for the Lions tennis program as they didn't win a single set in either the boys dual against Decorah or the girls matchup with Aplington-Parkersburg.

A-P dominated the three doubles matches, winning each of them 8-0. In singles, it allowed Clear Lake to win just six total games to end the night with a 9-0 win.

On the boys side, Decorah didn't drop a single set in the six singles and three doubles matches to cruise 9-0. Ten of the 18 sets were 6-0.

Des Moines Lincoln 6, Mason City 0: The Mohawks finished with 11 shots, but none found the back of the net in Friday night's loss at home.

The Railsplitters scored twice in the opening 40 minutes then poured on four goals in the second half to move to 2-3 on the season.

Mason City goalie Carson Siemons had 13 saves. No stats for Des Moines Lincoln were published online.

Girls soccer

Garner-Hayfield-Ventura 2, Belmond-Klemme 0: As the only two members in the Top of Iowa Conference with girls soccer programs, the Cardinals claimed the first meeting over the Broncos.
