ST. JOSEPH — St. Joseph struggled to deal with Gull Lake's intense defensive pressure in a 3-0 loss Thursday in a Southwestern Michigan Athletic Conference boys soccer tournament semifinal.

"It was a good learning moment for us," St. Joseph coach John Brown said. "We're done with learning moments, we have no more opportunities to learn. They absolutely came and just gave us an uppercut and we were not ready for it."
