WATERLOO — Matthew Cook came up big in goal and Cedar Falls scored the game’s only goal as the Tigers blanked ninth-ranked Cedar Rapids Prairie 1-0 Friday in Mississippi Valley Conference boys’ soccer.

Nathan Le scored on a set piece from 40 yards out just over 10 minutes into the second half while Cook was stellar all night and especially in the second half when he came up with three clutch saves to preserve the Tigers’ slim lead.

“It was a good win against a pretty good team,” said Cedar Falls coach Spencer Steffey. “It was a really physical game and I was happy how our guys played through that.”

Cedar Falls improved to 7-5 while Prairie slipped to 9-5.
