Traders Point made the long trip from the north side to take on Greenwood Christian. The Cougars were led by a stellar defense led by goalie Will Simons along with defenders Carson Boyce, Joey Schnake, Tommy Stines, and Max McNichols. The Cougars started off the scoring in the first half with an arching goal off the right foot of Caleb Flint with Norah Herndon on the assist. Halftime 1-0 GCA.
The 2nd half had the visitors putting in a goal but the home team would not go away quietly. Grahm Afterkirk showed grit taking the ball past 2 defenders and sliding the ball past a diving keeper’s fingertips. Traders Point frantically attempted to tie the game but Annaleece Jackson and Mason Steele and that stellar D wouldn’t let that happen. 5/6 Cougars will face Southside Thunder at home on Monday.
