WILLARD HIGH SCHOOL: 7
The Varsity Waynesville Tigers finally kicked off their season at Willard High. Despite the early season obstacles the team was excited to experience the first game of the year. Unfortunately the boys faced an experienced Willard squad who has started their season in form. Early in the match Willard controlled the game as the our team adjusted to playing its first competitive game on a slow playing field. Willard was able to get 2 goals in from driving deep into the boxes and finishing off the cross. We began to find our feet as moments of good possession and skill showed the potential in the team.
Waynesville saw a quality scoring chance from a shot that hit the near left post and deflected back into traffic, Willard was able to clear away the ball away before we could find a second shot. Shortly after the Faheem Mujahid hit the goal with a quality shot after he was sent through by a middle field pass. Unfortunately the offside flag was raised immediately and the goal was disallowed. Willard was able to capitalize on their shots and put a third goal in before half.
The second half opened with a quick goal by Willard that effectively put the game out of reach for Waynesville. Despite the final score there were bright spots to be found. The team is young with 5 freshmen and several sophomores all competing for starting spots. Freshman Blake Holloway had a sold performance as right back along with Junior Jesus Olivas as a central mid.
The Tigers will face West Plains at home Sept 14th, which will also be senior night. Please come out to support the team as the season gets into full swing.
