CCS Booters Click For Second Half Comeback Win Over Soddy Daisy

Lady Chargers Defeat Lady Trojans, 2-1

Tuesday, October 1, 2019 - by Parker Tuerff

Chattanooga Christian School completed their dramatic comeback over Soddy Daisy High School in a 2-1 win on Tuesday night.

Soddy Daisy’s senior Amy Rasmussen scored on the Trojans’ first shot on target. She arrowed her left footed shot into the bottom right corner from about 18 yards out to give the visitors the lead.

The Chargers nearly equalized through forward Laura Beth Turner a couple of minutes later.  Forward Mandi Bacon sent in a gorgeous cross from the right side that Turner put just wide of the near post.

Rasmussen almost added an assist later in the half after she played a through ball to senior Asher Smith, who just missed the far post with her shot from close in. The Trojans took a 1-0 lead into half time.

Chattanooga Christian came close to equalizing midway through the second half when Turner sent in a cross from the left side to Bacon, who flashed her volley just wide of the post.

With 17 minutes to play the Chargers finally got their goal. Carissa Chapman’s determination plus a lucky deflection yielded her a golden opportunity, which she took with confidence. There was not a Soddy Daisy defender within five yards of her as she placed her shot high into the roof of the net at the near post to tie the game up at 1-1.

One minute later, Chattanooga Christian would get the eventual game winner off of a bizarre cross-shot. Ansley McGlocklin crossed the ball from the right corner and the cross looped over the Trojan’s goal keeper to make it 2-1. The Charger’s would hold on for the remaining 16 minutes and seal the comeback victory.

“That’s what I’m proud of tonight; is their character,” Chattanooga Christian Head Coach Gretchen Hammel said. “Especially in the second half stepping up the intensity a little more.”

Chattanooga Christian will host Giles County in its regular season finale on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Soddy Daisy will host Boyd Buchanan on Thursday at 7 p.m.

The Wheel Tax Wouldn't Be A Sacrifice And Supports Our Teachers - And Response (9)

I appreciate our underpaid teachers here in Tennessee so much. We as a whole have a moral obligation to make sure we contribute to their pay. A wheel tax on our cars is a minimal expense to most of us. Sixty dollars is not enough for us to complain. We shouldn't even bat an eye at that if it contributes to the hard working teachers who sacrifice daily for our children. We ... (click for more)
