Soccer team wins 2 of 2 in last week’s games

The Eagles’ soccer team finished its best week yet with 1-0 shutouts over both East Fairmont and Ravenswood. Braxton is now at 2-2-1.
In Tuesday’s win at East Fairmont, the Eagles, according to Coach Justin Whitford, “began really well and then slipped a bit.” He added, “The whole first half was like that. First one team dominated, then the other.” It was in the first half, however, that the Eagles scored the only goal of the game. With three minutes left in the half, Quinn Hopen passed to Makila Carr, who shot and scored.
Coach Whitford reported that, in the second half, he saw “the best soccer [he’d] seen since the season began.” He added, “Braxton completely dominated the whole second half. The team looked really, really good.” The Eagles, however, did not score in the second half.
“We had some scoring opportunities,” the coach said,” but a lot of our shots went right to the goalkeeper.”

Knights lose to Clay

“We had opportunities to win but couldn’t take advantage of them,” middle school football coach James King said of his team’s 12-6 loss to Clay last Thursday night.
Coach King described the first quarter as a time of “the teams feeling each other out.” He also noted that Clay won the field-position battle in the first quarter as the Knights’ first two possessions began on their own one yard line.
