SoccerDawgs end skid vs. FHS

Bearden High School's boys soccer team did accomplished something Thursday, April 21, that it hadn't in four years.

The Bulldogs (12-0-2 overall, 7-0 in District 4-AAA) got a 3-0 victory over rival Farragut at BHS’s Bruce Allender Field.

“This is the first time that this group of seniors has ever beaten Farragut and this is great for a Bearden person,” SoccerDawgs head coach Eric Turner said. “We didn't have our best game tonight, but we got the job done.

“They've dominated things over the past few years and we had a couple of good years there. These things kind of ebb and flow and hopefully we can keep things on our side for awhile.”

Bulldogs senior defender Adam Wojnar, who scored the game's final goal on a direct kick in the 53rd minute, said the victory “feels great because we'd never beaten Farragut. We've played them seven or eight times over the last three years and it's great for this group of seniors to finally beat them.”

The Ads fell to 8-3-2, 3-3-0.

Bearden wasted little time getting its offense into gear. Junior forward Conner McCarty gave the BHS a 1-0 lead in the fourth minute, assisted by senior defender Seth Williams.

McCarty scored again at the 27-minute mark with an assist from sophomore Jake Goodman.

“I guess I've had my best games against Hardin Valley, Hendersonville, Maryville and Farragut,” McCarty said. “I've been clutch in those games and it feels great to finally beat Farragut.”

Williams has been around during the Admirals' four-year domination of the series and said Bearden's rapid start was key to its success throughout its flawless district run.

“We just wanted to come out here and score some goals early and we did,” Williams said. “[Our starts are] on and off. Sometimes, we come out sluggish and coach has to get on us.”
