HS Soccer Cougars Explode with Talent!

HS Soccer Cougars Explode with Talent!

Yesterday the TCS Cougars played perhaps their best game of this young season. The game began with the ball moving back and forth between the red and the purple each team attempting to establish control of the midfield. Early on Chris Taura and Marquis Victor set the tone with their short, sharp controlled passing game that was to become the basis for the rest of the game. On the wing Josh Wood played an outstanding game coming back to link the ball from midfield to the forward play beating players both one-on-one and by crossing the ball into...

10/15/2012: Cougars Conclude Soccer Season vs. MSA Mustangs

The season ended with a great game. The Cottage School Cougars played with tenacity and never quit in their drive to take on a fierce opponent. Mill Springs scored early, jumping out to a 2 to 0 lead. It was at this point that the Cougars began to snarl. Marquis Victor shut down the Mustangs leading scorer for the next 40 minutes. Asa Branch, Carlos Vargas, Austin Welton and Dion Schmidt closed up the middle of the field and repeatedly sent the ball back to the offense. Following the game plan, Evan Robertson, Chris Taura, Patrick Thompson,...

10/3/2012: Varsity Cougars Soccer vs Academe of Oaks

Academe of the Oaks came ready to play yesterday, with their short passing game working and their forwards relentless in their harassment of our defense and keepers. After a few miscues, the Oaks were up 3-0. Players off the bench, Tyler Salsbury, Marquez Riley, Alex Elliot and Alex Farrar added spark and began to shift the momentum. Chris Taura scored a beautiful goal through the fingertips of the opposing keeper, which was called back due to an off-sides away from the field of play. Disheartened TCS let down a bit and the Oaks went up 4-0....

9/28/2012: Varsity Cougars Soccer vs. Cherokee Christian

On Friday the Cougars Soccer team faced Cherokee Christian, a non-league opponent that has been a perennial problem to solve. In the first half the Cougars had a hard time with positioning and communicating, which resulted in Cherokee Christian jumping out to a 4-0 lead. The second half of the game was an entirely different game. Early in the second half Cherokee was able to score again, but the momentum changed—the rest of the game was TCS’ turn to control and dominate. The defense responded by transitioning the ball quickly to offense....

9/26/2012: Varsity Cougars Challenge AASD

9/26/2012: Varsity Cougars Challenge AASD

Yesterday’s game against AASD was a very good game. AASD drew blood first with a break-away score about 25 minutes into the game. Up to this point these two teams had been scrapping for each foot of real estate gained. The Cougars kept their heads up and continued to utilize their game plan and pressure AASD. Carlos Vargas scored evening the score at one all. It was a pretty up and over shot that caught the opposing keeper off their line. Chris Taura, Patrick Thompson, and Chandler Williams kept the pressure going up front, moving the ball...

9/14/2012: Soccer: Varsity Cougars vs. Mill Springs Mustangs

Friday was another tough game for the Cougars. Home field advantage went to Mill Springs on this day. Slogging through the high grass, the Cougars couldn’t seem to find their pace or rhythm as Mill Springs jumped out to an early lead 2 to 0 in the first 15 minutes on breakaways created by quick transitions from defense to offense. The Cougars began to fight back, creating some counter attacks and beginning to control the center of the field more of the time. Defensively, Carlos Vargas and Dion Schmidt, along with Austin Welton and Asa Branch...

9/12/2012 Varsity Cougars Soccer Defeats Academe of the Oakes

It was a good day for the TCS Cougars Varsity Soccer team as they faced the Firebirds of Academe of the Oakes. The Cougars controlled the midfield and the pace of the game for most of the day. The short passing, combination game of the Cougars resulted in a ton of near misses and 15 shots on goal. In the first half, the Cougar offense kept missing by inches. Carlos Vargas, Austin Welton, Dion Schmidt and Asa Branch played solid defense and worked tirelessly to link up with the offense for counterattack after counterattack. It was shortly into...

8/31/2012: Varsity Cougars Soccer vs. Brandon Hall

On Friday the Cougars took on a formidable opponent in Brandon Hall; the result was very lopsided and in no way indicative of the heart and tenaciousness that all of the Cougars displayed on this day. The Cougars are in the midst of a rebuilding season, which leads to lapses on defense and missed opportunities on the offensive side of the ball. Evan Robertson had a goal called back due to off-sides. Patrick Thompson and Chris Taura worked relentlessly with Evan trying to exploit Brandon Halls’ weaknesses. Defensively, the team started...
