CSAS Avenges Bucs Loss, Wins District 5A/AA Soccer Championship

Thursday, May 08, 2014

The CSAS boys soccer team wanted to be at full strength for their rematch with Boyd-Buchanan Tuesday night in the Distrct 5-A/AA championship.  Unfortunately, they had to play without two starters, but the Patriots were able to find the game winner in the final minutes of the match to earn the 1-0 win. 

 The Bucs of Boyd-Buchanan had beaten CSAS 2-1 in the regular season.  

The game winner came after a free kick by Mathias Hanson.  Markos Howard found the ball in front of the Bucs goal after the ball was batted around.  Howard placed the ball past the Bucs keeper for the game winner. 

"We came in here down yet again with two starters injured," CSAS head coach David Poss said. "We had some players out when we first played them and we talked about wanting to the play them with all of our starters.  We have to learn to play  different and we had some guys play different positions tonight.  They never gave up.  They wanted this." 

Poss is in his third season with the Patriots and this is their first winning season with a 10-6-2 record. 

CSAS keeper Addison Coleman who will continue his playing career next year at Lincoln Memorial had several big saves including a save early in the second half after a Zach Jenkins shot in front of the goal.

He had another big save late in the game. 

The Bucs had other opportunities to score but could not finish.  They will play at East Ridge on Tuesday in the region semifinals.

 CSAS will host Hixson on Tuesday in the other semifinal.
