With an overall record of 7-3-2 and a River Ridge District record of 3-3-2, the Cougar soccer players are finding themselves in a great position to finish strong going into the playoffs.

 

Out of the next five games, the Cougars will play what has been the top four teams in the district the last several years, so if the boys want to break into that top four, they’re going to have to earn it.

 

The Cougars have scored 28 goals with 20 assists so far this season, according to Head Coach, Chris Castle.

 

“This team is playing team ball and is showing unselfish play, I’m very proud of only conceding 14 goals,” Castle said.

 

Senior goalkeeper Derek Akers is having a banner year with 58 saves, including five shutouts. Senior midfielder Ryan Castle leads the team in goals scored with seven. Junior forward Riley Moore is right behind Castle with five goals. Senior midfielder Adam Bennett has been a great facilitator for the Cougars, notching seven assists for the team.

 

The Cougars hosted Patrick Henry Thursday, falling by a final score of 2-1. The Patriots scored first but the Cougars battled back to tie the game on a Trey Brubaker header. Patrick Henry got the go-ahead goal later in the second half, leaving the Cougars with the loss in a hard fought game.

 

The Cougars were set to be back in action Tuesday, April 30, to face the Hidden Valley Titans.
