VARNELL — Soccer
• Coahulla Creek boys 5, Ridgeland 0: Sadoth Fraire had four assists and the Colts (4-3) got the maximum number of points from their Walker County Invitational match.
In the tournament’s point system, teams get three points for a win and up to three points for each goal scored. Pedro Garcia scored twice, while Jo-An Barcenas, Eddie Serrato and Erwin Rivera each scored once.
Missa Fraire made eight saves in goal for the Colts. Garcia scored his two goals in the 22nd and 24th minutes, while the other three all came in the final 11 minutes.
“(The goals) kind of came in bunches,” Coahulla Creek coach Eric Parker said. “It was one of the things where it’s important to score a lot of goals to get the maximum six points.”
• Dalton boys 2, Knoxville West (Tenn.) 0: Alan Pantaleon and Ramiro Huitanda scored as the Catamounts (9-0) won for the second straight night at the Cleveland (Tenn.) Classic.
Raymundo Bahena had two saves for the Cats, who outshot their opponents 24-2.
“It was a very tough match,” Dalton coach Matt Cheaves said. “They’re a really strong team, really organized. We failed to capitalize on several good opportunities. And their goalkeeper made some really good shots.
“We were able to maintain possession for most of the game. Just actually getting through and penetrating and being able to get a goal was much harder than keeping possession.”
• Northwest boys 2, Ooltewah (Tenn.) 0: The Bruins scored twice in the first 15 minutes, then made that lead stand up in their first game at the Cleveland (Tenn.) Classic invitational tournament.
Set up by Giovanni Aguero, Kevin Santino notched a goal in the second minute. Eleven minutes later, David Perez was assisted by Christian Perez as he extended the lead for the Bruins (5-1), who bounced back from a 6-1 loss earlier this week at state-ranked Dalton.
Northwest outshot Ooltewah — which hosted the match on its campus — 12-4 and Bruins goalkeeper Miguel Deanda made one save to earn the shutout. Bruins coach Ryan Scoggins said his team did its best job of passing so far this season, even if the scoring might have been more abundant based on chances.
“We were fortunate to get those two fairly early goals,” Northwest coach Ryan Scoggins said. “We had a few more good chances, but their keeper made a couple of saves and their back line had decent speed, so any time we threatened they did a good job of clearing it away.”
• Darlington girls 0, Christian Heritage 0 (4-2): Ransley Defoor and Savannah Dixon converted penalty kicks, but the Lady Lions came up short in the shootout after scoreless regulation and overtime play.
While Christian Heritage is still looking for its first victory of the season with four matches already in the book, Lady Lions coach Adam Bolin was encouraged by Friday’s performance.
Dixon played well in midfield, as did Canzady Bailey, Bolin said.
“Defensively, it was the best game we’ve played all year against a solid Darlington team,” he said.
“I feel like we’re headed in the right direction as our season progresses.”
• Darlington boys 3, Christian Heritage 0: The Lions (1-3, 1-3 Sub-region 6A-A) allowed two goals in the first half off two defensive miscues, coach John Seehorn said.
“Other than those two, it was as good a game defensively as we have played,” he added.
Andrew McEntyre made eight saves for Christian Heritage.
“We’re getting better,” Seehorn said. “It’s tough to see in this region — this is a tough region — but we’re getting better.”
• Ridgeland girls 1, Coahulla Creek 0: Also at the Walker County Invitational, the Lady Colts (0-7) outshot their opponents 23-11 but couldn’t score.
Melissa Cabrera made 11 saves for Coahulla Creek, which allowed the game’s only goal in the 24th minute.
