Eagles come away empty against Webb
A Jarrett Milke goal in the opening minutes of the game was all the offense the Sevier County Smoky Bears would need Monday night in a 1-0 soccer win at county-rival Gatlinburg-Pittman.
The Class AAA Smoky Bears improve to 3-7-1 overall while the Class AA Highlanders fall to 5-3-2 on the season.
Milke was assisted on what turned out to be the game-winning-shot by Ryan Post. Milke took the delivery from post and drilled his shot that glanced off the leg of Gatlinburg-Pittman goal-keeper Dryse Bible.
Sevier County gets back into District 4-AAA Thursday with a trip to Lenoir City.
Sevier County had 17 shots on goal compared to just 10 shots on goal by the Highlanders.
Seymour gets blanked by Spartans
The Webb Spartans displayed to everyone on hand Monday night why they’re considered one of the more talented soccer squads in East Tennessee with an impressive 5-0.
The Spartans raced out to an early 4-0 lead during the first half and added a second-half score to make the final margin.
“Webb is a very good team,” said Eagles’ coach Mickie Williams. “I think that we were intimidated from the beginning.
“Our team was playing kind of reluctant, like we were afraid to make mistakes and Webb scored some goals on us early and took us out of the game. After that, we got down and were never able to get back into it. Of course, you can’t play like that and expect to beat a team like Webb.”
The Seymour coach said his team was outshot by the Spartans in the non-district tilt by a margin of 20-6. The Eagles, who fall to 3-5-2 on the season, played county rival The King’s Academy Tuesday. A Seymour High School alumni soccer game is planned for Thursday.
