Soccer Ads rip ’Cats; showdown with top-7 U.S. foe sought


Ranked No. 8 nationally by both Student Sports and Rivals.com after a 3-0 drubbing of Oak Ridge last week, Farragut soccer is seeking even higher ground with a national challenge.

“I wrote the top seven teams and asked them, since I had a game available, I’d come to them or they could come to me,” FHS head coach Wallie Culbreth said.


“I [e-mailed] ’em all after Clarksville cancelled. I figure that shows confidence in my team, that I’m willing to take on the best now.

“Let’s see if they’re willing to take on us.”

The spot opened up after the home game scheduled against Clarksville was rained out Friday, April 4.

FHS 3 OAK RIDGE 0

Outshooting the Wildcats 15-2, Farragut “basically controlled the game completely,” Culbreth said. “Eighty percent of the game was played on their side of field [ORHS defensive end].”

Jake Holt’s rebound goal in the box following a corner kick with under two minutes left in the first half put the Admirals (6-0-1 record) ahead 1-0.

“Jake Holt played exceptionally well,” Culbreth said about the senior midfielder.

Second half goals came from Tyler Mottern and Andrew Mosier, with Mosier assisting Mottern’s goal. “Tyler Mottern played well with a hurt ankle,” Culbreth said. “We didn’t even know if he was going to play.

“Overall, my defense totally controlled things, took their offense totally out of the game,” the coach added about the play of Drew Hemeter, Joseph Muth, Aaron Stinton and Ryan Stinton.

In the second half, Oak Ridge “came out in the first five minutes and tried to put pressure on us,” Culbreth said. “We withstood that barrage they had, and that put the pressure right back on them.”
