Cougar Soccer Makes it 3 in a Row.

Campbell County hosted the Oneida Indians this evening in a soccer border battle at CCHS. The game started quickly with CCHS taking a fast 1-0 as Caden Bostic got free behind the Indian keeper and pushed home a goal. The Indians stuck back moments later making it 1-1.
The game evolved into a defensive one for the remainder of the half as solid play there and at keeper saw the score stay at 1-1 for the next 30 minutes of game play. Then with 17 seconds remaining in the half Oneida was awarded a penalty kick. They pushed it past Cougar keeper Christian Tinch for a 2-1 lead headed to the half.
The second half saw more defensive and great keeper play from Tinch and the Indian keeper. More than 20 minutes of the 40 minute second half had elapsed with no score when Jeremy Weinberg fired a long hooking shot over the keepers head and into the back corner of the net. It was suddenly 2-2.
The Cougar offense began to take control of the game at that point. The ball was often on the Oneida side of the field and CCHS got kick after kick off on the Indian goalie. To the young man’s credit he defended quite well. With just over 3 minutes left it was still 2-2. Bryson Horton was on the attack again when he was blocked and ran into by an Indian defender. The officials ruled the Oneida defender wasn’t playing the ball and awarded Horton a penalty kick.
Horton spun the kick over the wall of Indian players, just over the outstretched arms of the keeper and just below the bar. The Cougars led 3-2. That proved the final margin as the Cougar defense didn’t allow the Indians any clear shots the rest of the way. It was the 3rd straight win for CCHS.
