Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences, getting goals from four different players, traveled to Camp Jordan on Tuesday and defeated East Ridge 4-1.

Junior Julianna Schuster scored CSAS’s first goal of the match when she took a touch around the defender and accurately placed her shot into the bottom left corner.

Late in the first half, CSAS was awarded a free kick a couple of yards outside the 18-yard box. Freshman Taylor Sabo launched a missile over the wall of Pioneers to propel the Patriots into a 2-0 lead going into the break.

“I knew that she was the one who I wanted on that kick. That is kind of her bread and butter,” CSAS Head Coach David Poss said.

The second half opened with a strong press by East Ridge, but the Patriots weathered the storm. CSAS then had its own wave of possession which yielded their third goal when junior forward Gracie Fogo scored from close in. 

Sophomore Christina Dawood was played in down the right side and fired her shot across the goal to the far post to give the Patriots a commanding 4-0 lead. 

“I was most excited about how we actually played together as a team; we haven’t been doing that a lot. It has been kind of a one person show and we had a lot of combinations that we hadn’t seen,” said Coach Poss.

East Ridge caught the Patriots sleeping late in the match through sophomore Lucy Lopez Mazariegos who created a one-on-one opportunity for herself, but her shot was straight at the senior goal keeper Suzie Rodriguez. 

A few minutes later Lopez Mazariegos picked up the ball near the sideline and proceeded to dribble, cut, and slash through three or four Patriots en route to another one-on-one face off with Rodriguez. Lopez Mazariegos made no mistake the second time around and blasted her shot low to the left to put a point on the board for East Ridge. 

East Ridge will travel to Sequatchie County High School on Thursday at 6 p.m. EST to play their second region game. 

CSAS will host Bradley Central at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
