The South Fork Cubs suffered their first loss of the season in girls soccer on Saturday, falling 1-0 to Laytonville in Miranda.
The visitors, who recently re-established their program after years of not fielding a team, scored the only goal of the game on a penalty kick and out-shot the Cubs 11-6 on the day.
The Cubs, however, got stronger as the game wore on, and had the edge in second-half chances, 5-3.
The Cubs, who dropped to 2-1 on the young season, were missing their starting sweeper Jaylene Harris through injury.
South Fork goalie Lyndsee Brewer finished with three saves and did a good job controlling the box, smothering up several loose through balls in the absence of Harris.
Junior midfielder Marian Del Rio also played well for the home team, which opens league play against Arcata in Miranda on Wednesday.
