Jet soccer team closed out regular season this week

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School soccer team closed out the regular season this week with three matches.

After hosting Harriman Monday and Smith County Tuesday, CCHS will host District 6AAA foe White County Thursday at 7 p.m.

CCHS 8, Rockwood 1: The Jets faced Rockwood last April 24 and won 8-1. The Jets scoring was led by Keith Fagan with a hat trick (three goals), Shawn Foster with two and Jarrod Lee, Jacob Valentin and Herschel Murner with one each.

"We played one of our prettiest games of the season. We controlled the ball extremely well and most importantly we finished on goal scoring opportunities," said Coach Cub Whitson.

Cookeville 2, CCHS 1: The Jets traveled to Cookeville April 26 to face top-seeded Cookeville for district play, but the Jets lost a hard-fought game for 80 minutes.

The match was well balanced for the first half, with both teams playing great defense. Jets keeper Brandon Brown made several great saves to keep the score even at zero. His defenders Drew Talford, Aaron Miller and Michael Brady played great as well.  

Midway through the first half the Jets transitioned into a goal scoring opportunity where Jacob Valentin sent a ball on the ground across the face of the goal and was mere centimeters away from the goal before Cookeville keeper reached back for the save. 

Cookeville opened the second half with a goal within the first five minutes. Twenty minutes later, the Jets were scrambling to push the Cavaliers out of their 18 and fouled inside the box, giving up a second goal from a penalty kick. 

Within the last moments of the game, Cookeville got a hand ball inside their own 18 and Shawn Foster put the Jets on the scoreboard.

"Cookeville is a great team with lots of talents, but our guys fought back hard. The guys showed that they wanted that win and gave 100 percent. Next time, if we get the chance to play them, I guess it will take 110 percent," added Whitson.
