SPENCERVILLE - Host Spencerville raced to a 5-0 halftime lead but had to stave off a big rally by Ada to defeat the Bulldogs 6-4 in boys soccer action Saturday.
Cole East scored three goals to pace the Ada comeback, while Terry Sheridan added the other goal.
"We have got to come out (at the start) with more intensity," said first-year Bulldog coach Jason Okuly.
The loss dropped the Bulldog record to 0-3 this season. But on the positive side, Ada has scored six goals in their last two contests.
The Bulldogs return home to host Upper Sandusky Tuesday evening.
