CSAS Wins 4-0 Over Hixson In Region 3A/AA Semifinal

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

The Patriots of CSAS scored three of their four goals in span of six minutes Tuesday night in the region 3A/AA semifinal match against Hixson.  The Patriots went on to win 4-0 and will host Boyd-Buchanan in the region final on Thursday. 

 It took 28 minutes for the Patriots to find the net.  The first goal came off a Mathis Hansen corner kick redirected by Christo Payne. 

 In the 32nd minute, Cade Murry headed in a goal after a save by the Hixson keeper.

In the 34th minute, Zachary Webber beat two defenders before slotting the ball past the Hixson keeper. 

 The Patriots took a 3-0 lead into the halftime break.  They scored four minutes into the second half when Markos Howard flicked the ball in the net from inside the box.

The Patriots had lost to Hixson 2-1 in the regular season but were without seven players in the game.

 CSAS head coach David Poss tried to help his team prepare mentally for this rematch.

"We were missing some key people in our first game,"  David Poss said. "I was worried they would come into this game over confident having everyone back.  But we got that first goal and the others are easier to come by." 

The Patriots have won four straight in the playoffs and will play at least two more games.  Both the region champion and region runner up with advance to sectional play on Saturday. 

Thursday's region final with Boyd-Buchanan will be played at 7 p.m. at CSAS.
