Lady Jets drop 2-0 match against Ooletwah in season opener

CROSSVILLE — On Tuesday night, the CCHS Lady Jets soccer team opened their season against highly rated Ooltewah, dropping a 2-0 decision for first-year coach Jeremy Conner.

Starters were Brianna Taylor, Brooke Golden, Anna Holt Shaw, Emily Monday, Jennifer Hedgecoth, Alli Graham, Kirsten Cox, Jordan Hedgecoth, Bailey Richardson, Taylor Moss and Meghan Server.

Subs were Kayde Johnson, Mariah Wisor, Sydney Clark, Angel Perry and Shelby Smith. 

"For their first showing of the season, it would be a real test, but CCHS handled the pressure well and maintained a great amount of possession during the first half before Ooltewah notched a goal from a through ball that split the defenders," said Conner.  

After that goal, play resumed, with CCHS threatening to even the score with several opportunities of their own in the opponent's box. This aggressive play led to a penalty kick for CCHS, which was taken by Brianna Taylor, who was unlucky to watch the ball fly over the goal. But the Jets weren't finished yet, as Jennifer Hedgecoth made a wonderful run into the box and hooked up with a hustling Brooke Golden, who was unable to latch onto the ball, completely missing the chance.  

Moments later the Lady Jets found defensive inspiration from goalkeeper Meghan Server (playing her first competitive match) who made a great diving save after Ooltewah's forward looked to make it 2-0.

The second half looked much like the first, with both teams playing great soccer and looking well deserved for a goal. But it wasn't long until Ooltewah was able to break the Jets defense' down with an amazing long-range effort that sparked past Server for the goal.

"Even at two down, the Lady Jets never looked out of the game as they scrapped and fought for loose balls and position, creating many chances of their own, but weren't lucky enough on the night to find that deserved goal. If the showing from this night says anything about the upcoming season it is that it promises to be good one," concluded Conner.

The Lady Jets travel to Kingston Sept. 3, and will open their District 6AAA slate at Cookeville Sept. 5.
