CCS Tops Signal Mountain 2-0, After Lightning Delay Ends Match Early

Tuesday, September 10, 2019 - by Parker Tuerff

Chattanooga Christian School’s girls’ soccer team was leading Signal Mountain 2-0 before a second half lightning delay ended the match.

CCS got the action started in the 9’ with a beautiful individual effort from midfielder Madi Gross. She chipped the keeper all the way out from the left sideline to give the Chargers the lead.

The Chargers nearly scored again when forward Laura Beth Turner rattled the crossbar from her free kick in the 20’. CCS challenged the Eagle’s goal keeper late in the 45’ as she spilled the initial shot and did enough to keep the Chargers out for a second time. 

Less than ten minutes before the game was called, midfielder Savannah Jones dribbled unchallenged into the box and fired her shot over the goal keeper to give CCS a 2-0 lead. 

With 22:09 left on the clock, the referee ended the match after lightning was spotted. Halftime had already occurred and by rule, the game could end without being rescheduled awarding CCS with the win. 

Chattanooga Christian Head Coach Gretchen Hammel was pleased that her team achieved a goal that they had set for themselves. “I’m proud of my girls, we got two goals in. One of the goals they have for the season is to win by two when they win and we did that in a short game. We have had a really tough schedule and we really needed this positivity.” 

Chattanooga Christian School will travel to Baylor to play their first region at 7 p.m.

Signal Mountain has the rest of the week off and will return to action September 17 when they host McMinn Central at 6 p.m.
