CCHS soccer team absorbs losses over the past week

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS soccer saw its record go to 5-3-1 overall and 0-1 in District 6AAA, after the last five matches.

Cumberland County Jets hit a road block in their “goal based” season after their 7-1 win at Harriman High School on April 9, where they had a stellar scoring performance.

Shawnee Foster opened the Jets' scoring with two drives down the midfield making way for Alex Pribanich to follow his path of scoring. Caleb Charles and Drew Talford were placed in the scoring stat book from their defensive positions, as they accomplished their goals of scoring on set plays.

Keeper Xane Hazelwood saw a limited amount of action, as his defense attempted to shut out the Blue Devils, but fell short of this goal. The Devils gathered a fierce attack on the Jets defense in a series of transitional plays. As the clock wound down, Hazelwood answered the attack with a deep punt assist to Dustin Davis. Despite the score, the Jets fought hard for the win and were banged up. 

On April 11, Cumberland County traveled to Anderson County without four starters and fell to the Mavericks 4-0, and hosted Kingston April 12, but fell short 2-0. 

On April 16, the Jets traveled to White County for their first district game of the season.

"Injuries continue to plague us. We have been fighting the weather to be able to play our games and now experienced manpower to field a team against a district opponent,” quoted Coach Cub Whitson.

The Jets program is in a development year with 26 on the roster of which 17 are in their rookie year. 

As the Jets took to the field against the Warriors, the Jets' line-up consisted of more rookies than veterans. Yet, from the whistle, the game was back and forth. The Jets took eight shots on goal, but never could break through the other’s defense for a goal. Despite the Jets' effort throughout the entire first half and the first 31 minutes of the second half, the Warriors broke the scoreless tie. 

“It wasn’t the results we were hoping for, but it was the effort we asked for. We have some experienced players, we have some that have never played a varsity sport, we have some that can master a technique, we have some that need to be shown basic skills but we see tonight that each leveled player contributes to our success,” expressed assistant coach Drea Marshall. 

On April 17, the Jets participated in a goal-a-thon to help raise money for the program and hosted Oliver Springs Bobcats. The Jets Shawnee Foster came out with a “hat trick” three goals and Francisco Chavez marked his spot netting a goal in the second half. Keeper Xane Hazelwood entered the Jet' stat book with a strong finish and his first shut out of his high school career. 

Coach Cub Whitson commented on the match-up, “We accomplished all our goals tonight with well played, organized soccer. We still have injuries that we hope mend before our next district match — Coffee County Tuesday — but when we are successful in building a lead, we can provide all our players to experience their game at the competitive level. That helps us as coaches to successfully build our program.”

The Jets hosted district foe Coffee County Tuesday night, with both the junior varsity and varsity in action.

CCHS will host Cookeville Thursday, with the JV game at 5 p.m. and the varsity match to follow at 7 p.m. The April 18 match with Warren County has been rescheduled for a later date.

Cross-town rival SMHS visits Saturday, with the JV game at 9 a.m. and the varsity match at 11 a.m. on senior day. The seniors are Todd Wisor, Brandon Brown, Jarrod Lee and Drew Talford.

CCHS closes out the regular season April 29 at Bradley Central at 6 p.m.
