Varsity Soccer vs. North Cross School

Hargrave 0 – North Cross 1In a tough VIC match-up with North Cross, the Tigers played a great game and kept the pressure on, but could not find the back of the net with a score. The Tigers controlled the game for 75% of the time and out shot the conference foe, 18 to 4.The Tigers played to a 0-0 halftime score and played with confidence and composure. In the second half, the North Cross team was able to make good on one of their corner kicks and get the ball in the middle of the goal area where one of the boys was able to get a foot on the ball, putting it in the net for the only goal of the game.The Tigers were relentless with their pressure most of the game, but especially during the last 15 minutes of the game. Numerous times the well struck shots by the Tigers would hit the goal posts or would deflect off a defender and go wide.The Tigers now prepare for a tough week with 4 games in 5 days with the final two season games coming up for Parents Weekend. The Tigers play Fishburne on Thursday afternoon at home at 4 PM. They will travel the short distance to Carlisle in Martinsville on Friday for an 8 PM match under the lights.

It will be a challenging week for the Tiger team. Please offer your support and encouragement to the team throughout the week.
