No. 1 Ads lose, tie; BHS shows ‘intensity’

While the state’s top-ranked Class AAA Farragut soccer team lost for the first time this season at the Pope John Paul II Tournament in Hendersonville, it’s rival fared a bit better to the west.

Though Bearden, ranked No. 5, finished with a 1-1-1 record during the annual Houston Invitational in Memphis last week, SoccerDawg head coach Eric Turner came away with mixed feelings.

“We didn’t get the results we wanted, but effort-wise I thought we played really well,” Turner said, as BHS’s overall record was 9-4-2 entering the week. “We’re looking at intensity level and work rate, and I thought our kids did that.”

Meanwhile, the Ads (15-1-2 entering the week) tied Christian Brothers 1-1 Thursday, April 24, before its 2-1 loss to PJP II one day later. More later on FHS.

Individually for Bearden, Turner praised Patrick Harmony, “who had a great weekend for us” at defensive midfield, and forwards Tom Webster for “showing flashes” of his All-state ability and Ryan Campbell for “general aggressiveness.”

Behind a pair of Campbell goals, Bearden blanked Siegel 3-0 Friday, April 25. Scott Norman also scored, with assists from Aaron Schoenfeld and Alex Wilkerson.

Despite a 4-2 loss to No. 3-ranked Houston (11-1-1) Thursday, April 24, “I thought we played very well,” Turner said. Webster scored both SoccerDawg goals, assisted by Justin Nash and Wilkerson.

A 1-1 tie against MUS Saturday saw Tylor Koulavong score for BHS with Webster assisting.

For Farragut, Travis Bolton scored against Christian Brothers while Tyler Pack tallied against PJP II. “We had John Paul beat, we just couldn’t put it in the net,” FHS head coach Wallie Culbreth said.

Culbreth praised Will Beuerlein, Jake Holt and Tyler Mottern while giving special praise to Drew Hemeter and Joseph Muth who “marked up on their good players and kept them of the game.”
