Wallie Culbreth was especially upbeat after his Farragut boys soccer team, ranked No. 1 in Tennessee Class AAA and No. 8 nationally, easily beat Pigeon Forge 6-0 Friday, April 12, at FHS’s Bill Clabo Field.

“Overall, we played an excellent game,” said Culbreth, whose Admirals entered the week 10-0-1. “The first half when I had my starters in, they just played an excellent game. We totally controlled the game.” Farragut outshot PFHS 18-0.

Adding a 5-0 win against Alcoa at FHS Tuesday, April 8, and a 3-1 home victory versus South-Doyle Thursday, April 10, the Ads built momentum entering a tough week.

Farragut played at No. 4 state-ranked West Tuesday, April 15 (after press deadline), as the Rebels (7-2-0 entering the week) come off a 2-1 upset win at Bearden Saturday, April 12 (see related story, page 17A).

The Admirals hosted No. 3 Bearden at 8 p.m., Friday, April 18. (See related story beginning on page 17A)

Individually against Pigeon Forge, “Jake Holt and Tyler Mottern are my middle guys … they both played aggressively, smart,” Culbreth said.

“Will Beuerlein played outstanding at left mid[field], he had two reflection goals because he was in the right place doing the right things,” the coach added.

Senior Andrew Moser also had two goals. “He had infected tonsils … he’s only been playing in limited amount until [Friday],” Culbreth said.

Mottern added a penalty kick while a John Chancey goal rounded out the FHS scoring.

Against South-Doyle, Culbreth praised sophomore left fullback Ryan Stinton.

“Ryan is consistent, and he just doesn’t make mistakes,” the coach said. “And he never gives you less than 110 percent. He’s always effective.”

Culbreth praised senior forward Travis Bolton, whose hat-trick [three goals] led the way against Alcoa.

Joseph Muth, senior standout defender, played well in each game last week according to Culbreth.

“Joseph holds my defense together,” he said. “And even when he’s hurt, he’s a warrior.”
