CCHS soccer team ends season at 11-7-1

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School Jet soccer team ended its season with an 11-7-1 record after defeating White County 5-2 in the regular season finale May 3 and dropping a 4-3 decision at Coffee County in the District 6AAA Tournament May 8 in Manchester.

CCHS 5, White County 2: The Jets sealed third place in the regular season and set a new school record for most wins in a single season as they defeated White County last Thursday night 5-2. The Jets were determined from the starting whistle.

The Jet captains played with a D.W. marked on their captains bands in honor and memory of Dennis Whitson, Coach Cub Whitson's father who passed away on Oct. 2.

"Our boys would have definitely made him proud tonight. Its not just how these young men play soccer, but what they stand for that makes me the proudest coach in the state. I appreciate these guys so much," said Cub Whitson.

The Jets struck with an early goal from Shawn Foster, but the Warriors of White County bounced back midway through the first half to even the score at 1-1.

Keith Fagan and Jacob Valentin both found the back of the net to end the half with a 3-1 lead.

The Jets came out of half time looking to end the game quickly with another goal from Foster and then another from Jarrod Lee.

The Warriors fought back and recorded their second goal late in the game, but the Jets were able to hold onto the 5-2 lead. 

Coffee County 4, CCHS 3: "It was a tough loss last night to Coffee County," said Whitson, after the Jets ended the season and district play with the 4-3 loss.

Shawn Foster scored off a PK, but the Raiders came back with a PK goal of their own.

The game was a midfield battle.

The Raiders went ahead of the Jets on a flopped corner kick.

Jarrod Lee distributed great feeds and Oscar Barillas closed down the left's attack giving Keith Fagan the opportunity to launch his rocket shot from outside the 30.

The Jet defense was pressured most of the night in this battle, and Aaron Miller, Tyler Bennett, McKenze Childress, Michael Brady and Drew Talford worked hard to support keeper Brandon Brown.

The Raiders scored off a second PK to end the half with the lead of 3-2.

The "never say die" attitude of the Jets fired up forwards Jacob Valentin and Herschel Murner. Within 30 seconds in the start of the half, Shawn Foster scored. With the clock ticking down, the Raiders scored off another corner kick to take the lead.

"Our boys fought hard and despite falling short of the win tonight, the season was an overall success. We have a school record for most seasonal wins and above all else, the bonds that united our boys as a family unit tonight are permeant. We have succeeded as coaches when we can look back at the players and witness the transfer from individual players to one Jet team and, proudly, boys to men," said assistant coach AnDrea Marshall.

"Even though we came up shy of our goal of making it to regions, I'm still extremely proud of our team. This team showed the true meaning of team work and commitment this year. They committed to each other and accomplished things on and off the field that we have been lacking for a while.  We definitely became a family this year and that's the most important thing that these guys can take away from playing high school soccer."

The Jets finished third place this season and set a school record for most wins in single season with 11. Individual Jets were recognized Thursday night at the championship match for their All-District Awards.  

Keith Fagan accomplished a first for the team, as well, winning the district's Midfield MVP. Jacob Valentin, Shawn Foster, Jarrod Lee and Tyler Bennett were all placed on the All-District Team.
