Kenston displayed some flashes of promise in the attacking third, but lapses in set-piece defending and off-ball runs sealed the Bombers’ fate in a 3-0 setback to visiting Berea-Midpark on Aug. 31.

The Bombers (0-2-1) generated eight shots on target, but the Titans (1-3-1) were impressive in all facets to notch a fair result.

“Our struggle is we don’t get to the ball first, which makes it extremely difficult to have possession of the ball,” Kenston coach Trip Roney said. “Without possession of the ball, you can’t do much. And we just weren’t passing to feet today. So we spent a lot of time defending and just giving the ball away.

“It’s hard to be in a game, let alone win it, when you’re giving the ball away. That’s my No. 1 takeaway is we just have to keep possession of the ball.”

Aidan Zak had a strike go begging high over the crossbar in the fifth minute.
