WILLIAMSVILLE - Jamestown had several good scoring chances in the final moments, but couldn't find the back of the net and suffered a 2-1 setback to Williamsville North in an Erie County Interscholastic Conference Division 1 soccer game on Friday.
The Spartans led 1-0 at halftime and 2-0 early in the second half, but Alex Lee Yaw cut the deficit in half on a penalty kick with 8 minutes remaining and the score stood up as the Red Raiders (3-9, 1-7) suffered their sixth one-goal loss of the season.
''The guys know they can play with them,'' Jamestown coach Andrew Pihlblad said. ''We've had some unlucky bounces against us. We'll keep plugging away and hopefully we'll get the bounces to go our way.''
The Red Raiders had opportunity in the closing moments, including several corner kicks, but were unable to connect for the game-tying goal.
Liam Kulakowski made six saves for Jamestown between the pipes.
The Red Raiders return to action at 5 p.m., Monday when they entertain Orchard Park.
