The Boys Soccer teams traveled to Simon Kenton last night to play a tri-match and left with 1 win and 2 ties. All three teams held there own with the Pioneers.
The Freshman Camels started off the night with a 1-1 tie. The game was back and forth, with both teams having several chances to pull away and win the game, but it eventually ended in a tie. Morgan Drake scored the lone goal for the Camels.
The JV Camels continued their nice season, pulling out a 1-0 win over the JV Pioneers. Like the freshman game, this one could have gone either way. The JV Camels showed moments of brilliance and also had some portions of the game where they were working to keep Simon Kenton out of their half of the field. Late in the game Gabe Smallwood made a great run and was assisted by Alex Franzen for the only goal of the game. This was another hard fought, great win for the JV boys.
The varsity concluded the night with a 2-2 tie. The boys completely controlled the first half of this game. The ball was mostly in Simon Kenton’s half of the field and the Pioneers were struggling to handle the pressure from the Camels. The boys worked together as a team and looked to cruise to an easy victory. Rob Augspurger, assisted by Mark Weber and Mike Dumaine, assisted by Rob Augspurger, were able to net first half goals for the Camels. The second half though, belonged mostly to Simon Kenton. The Pioneers came out with a purpose and the Camels had to work hard to match the intensity. After scroring on two free kicks to tie the game 2-2, Simon Kenton looked to push and finish the game. The Camels fought hard and had a few more chances to win the game, but nothing found the goal. Overall, the first half showed what the Camels can do when everything is clicking, but the second half left a lot to be desired. The Camels play Pendleton County at their place on Saturday and look to get their first win in 4 games.
