Nationally ranked Ads, BHS roll; Hawks bounce back big


It was simply too easy for Farragut in the early minutes of its soccer game versus Webb School of Knoxville: a quick goal from Carlos Ramos, off a pass from Brandon Klarner, plus two other excellent scoring chances in the first five minutes.

But the nation’s top-10-ranked Admirals (4-0) found themselves in a 1-1 tie with the Spartans (2-3) midway through the first half after a 35-yard goal from Jared Einsenhower at the 22:52 mark.

Time to send a message and pull most starters. “We were lulled into overconfidence,” said FHS head coach Wallie Culbreth after a 3-1 Farragut win Thursday, March 25, after the game was called with 23 minutes left in the second half due to lightning.

“We weren’t helping each other. There was no teamwork. I decided to pull them to remind them of their responsibilities.”


Nick Muth’s header off a Marshall Ishmael corner kick gave the Admirals a 2-1 lead with 6:07 left in the first half. Cody Newby’s goal, a header from seven yards out, came with 30:48 to play.

BHS EDGES HAWKS; HVA WINS

Meanwhile, Bearden got one goal and one assist each from forwards Connor McCarty and Andrew Sullivan to edge Hardin Valley Academy 2-1 at Bearden Tuesday night, March 23, improving BHS’s record to 5-0.

“Both of those guys played well,” BHS head coach Eric Turner said.

The Hawks (2-2) beat Anderson County 5-0 Thursday at HVA behind Nick Skoda’s four goals.

“He's just explosive, a lot of teams aren't ready for his speed,” head coach Michael McLean said.

Justin Haskell, whose goal tied the Bearden game, added the other tally versus ACHS.

Against BHS, “We played better the second half,” McLean said, adding Trent Steffen and Garrett Hay, defenders, and Dalton Guzman, midfielder, all played well last week.
