Junior Justin Mason finished the Phoenix’s lone goal Monday against the Midview Middies.

Oberlin battled to gain control of the game and both teams gave up crucial free kicks within striking range.

Phoenix goalkeeper Ethan Carmichael had an outstanding game, making five saves — one on a Midview free kick from 25 yards out.

The boys improved to 6-2 on the season.

The Phoenix were unable to bounce back from an early deficit Saturday against the Brookside Cardinals, losing 3-1.

Oberlin will travel to Columbia to face the Raiders at 7 p.m. Saturday.
