Behind Carter’s goals, SoccerDawgs salvage win versus Collierville

Rico Carter, Tom Webster, Andrew Hinkle and a solid Bearden Bulldog defense were key elements that helped salvage an otherwise tough weekend of high school soccer. Behind Carter’s two goals and Webster’s two assists, the Bulldogs blanked Collierville 2-0 in the final game of the annual Bearden Invitational Sunday, April 2, at BHS’s Allender Field.

Following a 2-1 loss to Memphis University School Friday and a 4-0 setback to Christian Brothers of Memphis Saturday, Bearden’s record stood at 3-2-1 entering the week.

“It was good to come back and get a win, we’ll take it and hopefully we’ll build on it,” BHS head coach Eric Turner said. “The defense played real well today, and Andrew Hinkle’s been playing real well for us in the middle of the field, too; he’s been making a lot of stuff happen for us.

“Rico had a good tournament, had three goals, and Tom Webster’s helping him out up top, he had both assists [versus Collierville]. Both of them are playing well.”

Carter said he and Webster “have been working well on top. We’re still not playing a full eighty minutes, but we’re going to get there.”

Carter’s goal against MUS was assisted by goalkeeper Bryan Walker.

“Friday night we just made some mistakes ... In the second half we didn’t match their intensity,” Turner said. “And Saturday we just got our butt handed to us.”

As for trying to solve problems offensively, “We’re just trying to fill in with that third forward, now, trying to get a little more consistent play to help Andrew Hinkle in the middle,” Turner said.
