South Soccer - 3-3 Tie Against Miami East

Twin Valley South tied Miami East 3-3.  TVS struck first with a great free kick from Hunter Bennett. East then scored to make the game 1-1 heading into the end of the half. East struck first in the second half to take the lead. Then Travis Lovely ripped a shot from about 35 yards out to tie it back at two. East then took the lead back in the last ten minutes of the game.  TVS kept pushing and got a goal within the last 3 minutes of the game to end the game 3-3. Daniel page took the ball down the right side and got a cross to Jesse Woods who put the ball in the back of the net. Zach Guehring had 19 saves for the panthers.

Coach Young commented, "I was very proud of the boys.  I know we really wanted to get the win, but considering they beat us 6-0 last year we can be happy with 1 point in the league.  I really thought we were the better team tonight we just couldn't catch a break. One of our better players had to sit out most of the first half with a pulled muscle, and then one of our kids shoes broke, so we just couldn't catch a break.  Hunter Bennett stepped up and moved to defense, a position which he has never played before.  He came up big for us and showed great leadership.  Overall I was happy with the effort we showed tonight, and I think we took a huge step in the right direction."
