The Middle School boys soccer team played their last game of the season in Thomasville Wednesday night beating Thomasville Central 4 to 1.
The rout started with a goal from Mid-fielder Cesar Chiguil with an assist from Center Forward Caleb Harris. Thomasville responded with a goal of their own right before the half making it 1-1. But Chiguil scored an unassisted goal soon after the start of the 2nd half making the score 2-1.
Harris widened the Bearcat’s lead to 3-1 with his own unassisted goal, followed by Chiguil’s 3rd goal of the game, also unassisted, in which he singlehandedly dribbled the ball around 4 Thomasville defenders and past the goalie for the final goal of the game.
Bearcat Coach Rick Lewis announced Chiguil the MVP of the game for his 3 goals, but also pointed out other players for their fantastic play during the game including Nix McIntosh at Center Forward and Mayo Livingston on defense. “They couldn’t get the ball down the right side of the field because Mayo was there to stop them every time. And forget the center because our mid-fielders [Joe Emmons and Connor Christopher] and our defenders [Alex Soden and Tristan Love] shut them down all day long.”
“Throughout the season we got great solid play from our entire team and despite the rocky start to the season, I’m pretty happy with our final record” Lewis continued.
Looking forward to next year Coach Lewis said “We had a huge roster of players this year with 28 boys and 23 girls. Even though we’ll be losing at least 10 boys and most of the girls when they move up to high school next year, I’m really excited about the skill we have left with our current 7th graders, most of whom didn’t get to play as much as they wanted because of the huge program we had. There are some 7th graders who are great players but because of the size of the team we just didn’t get to see much of their ability. We will next year.”
The Bearcats ended their season with 2 wins, 2 losses and 2 ties. Coach Lewis’ Ladycats, who tied Thomasville Central 0-0 Wednesday night, finished their season 1-3-2.
