“Overall the scrimmage went fairly well,” LCHS coach Eric Evans said.
In a game where ultimately the score didn’t matter, the intensity was there. Each player ran out and grabbed every loose ball they could. The hustle was there but there was something that Hertiage Christian continued to exploit over and over.
“Defenseively, we got a lot of work to do on defense,” coach Evans said “That’s our biggest problem right now.”
Hertiage Christian kept the ball down on the other end of the pitch most of the first half and took an early lead. The Cougars tweaked a few things and upped the aggression and started pushing their way towards their opponents relatively clean goal keeper.
“Offenseively we did fairly well,” coach Evans said “We could still pass the ball better.”
Despite the lack of crisp passing, LCHS proved they have a lot of athletes that can create scoring opportunities on their own. With just sheer aggressiveness and athleticism the Cougars attacked the opposing defense again and again and proved that perhaps the best defense is a good offense. They scored to knot up the score at 1-1 and played to a draw for the scrimmage.
If people want to see an exciting brand of soccer, they no longer have to look far and wide for it, it’s being played in their very own back yard at Logan County. They open the regular season at Hart County next Tuesday before coming home August 18th against Hart County.
