CAK Soccer Edges CCS, 2-1

Chargers Fall in State Quarters

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

MURFREESBORO -- Christian Academy of Knoxville scored two, second half goals to rally past Chattanooga Christian 2-1, here Wednesday night in a TSSAA D-I A-AA girls soccer state quarterfinal match at the Siegel Soccer Complex.

CCS took a 1-0 lead on a Beata Brock goal in the 14th minute, but CAK had goals from Hannah Schoutko (49th minute) and Cori Crocker (68th minute) for the win.

CAK will face defending champion Christ Presbyterian Academy in one semifinal match Thursday (6 p.m. EDT), while Notre Dame takes on Knox. Catholic in the other semifinal (3:30 EDT).

CPA defeated CAK in the 2012 finals.  CAK has won state championships in 2006-08-09-11.

"After we scored our goal I think we backed off a little and were not aggressive enough the rest of the first half," said CCS coach Cal Sneller. "But I think we created great chances in the second half, but could not get the ball in the net."

CCS ended the season 11-7-4.

"At half I told our players that when we had the ball outside the box to put the ball on the frame (of the goal) and since their goalkeeper is short we have a chance to score," said CAK coach Ried Estus.
