Last night was yet another fantastic night for soccer and the boys walked away from their games with some outstanding results.
The Freshman Camels started the night off with a hard fought game against the Freshman Bluebirds. This game was back and forth, with both teams working hard for the win. Unfortunately for the Camels, the Birds got the winning goal late in the game to take a 2-1 victory. Our boys played hard and wanted the win, but came up a bit short.
The JV Camels continued with the intensity and took it to the JV Birds. As has been the case all season, our JV boys played well together and had many chances on goal. Colton Schneider netted a goal for the Camels and Highlands had an own goal. The assist on the goal came from Trey Schierenbeck. Highlands was able to get a goal, but the JV Camels pulled out the 2-1 victory. This was a great win for the boys and showed that when they step on the field, they have a chance to beat any team.
The Varsity Camels played the final game of three and really needed a win against a good opponent. Highlands was feeling good after a few wins, but the Camels came to play. This was a very physical game from the beginning and the Camels matched Highlands step for step. The boys felt good about the game and wanted to make a statement, and it showed on the field. There were moments in the game where the Birds couldn’t handle the pressure from the Camels. With good possession and movement, the Camels were able to get a few chances on goal. Troy Wolfzorn, with his first goal of the season, was able to head in an early cross from Michael Dumaine for the only goal of the game. After the goal, the game was back and forth. Highlands had a few chances, but James Wilbers was able to make some great saves and record the shutout. Overall, this was a team win for the Camels. The boys left it all on the field and worked just as hard on the sidelines providing support for their teammates. A win against Highlands is something that Campbell County has been looking for since 2009, and it finally came last night. Great win boys! With seven games left, the Varsity Camels will look to build off of their recent success and end the season strong.
