CHS Soccer takes two wins

Crossett freshman Jayden Thurmon celebrates after kicking the winning goal in last week’s game against Star City. The teams were tied 0-all at the end of regulation and after a shoot out round and a sudden death round, the Eagles claimed a 4-3 victory.

The Crossett Eagles soccer team won both of their games in overtime last week.

Coach Chuck Rawlings said this season the boys have played three games that went into overtime and they have won all three.

On Monday the Eagles beat Warren 4-2 in an overtime shootout and on Wednesday won by one point in “sudden death.”

“We should have destroyed Stuttgart, we were beating them two to nothing at the half and we laid down,” Rawlings said.

In the game against Stuttgart, the score was 2-2 at the end of regulation and the Eagles were able to out score the Ricebirds 4-2 during the first overtime.

On Tuesday night the Eagles faced Star City and neither team had scored at the end of regulation. Rawlings said the teams went into the first overtime and still tied at three-all. It wasn’t until the “sudden death” portion of overtime that Crossett was able to secure the win. Jaden Williams, a CHS freshman, kicked in the winning goal to give the Eagles a 4-3 victory over Star City.

“They were on fire; everybody played like demons, it was great,” Rawlings said. “It was the best we’ve played all year.”

The two wins gave the Eagles’ soccer team a 3-5 overall record and a 3-3 conference record.

“We are still in the chase for the playoffs,” Rawlings said.

The Eagles will host Warren on Wednesday at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Little Rock Mills on Thursday for their last games of the season.
