Opening week of the season MUS Soccer played Sheffield and Houston. On Tuesday, 3/19 we played Sheffield at home and won 8-0. On Friday 3/22, we played Houston away and drew 1-1. The following players had goals or assists:
Rhodes Heard 2 goals
Ryan Matthews 2 goals
Thomas Pitts 2 goals and 1 assist
Sam Kilgore 2 goals and 2 assists
Jake Knaff 1 goal
Kayhan Mirza, Knox McQuillen, Grant Young 1 assist each.
In both games MUS started a little slow, but after 15 minutes, they picked up their game and went at both teams. Sheffield was in the state tournament last year and Houston is a top team nationally each year.
This week the pattern continues with an up-and-coming MBA at MUS on Tuesday at 7pm. Memphis Business Academy had a strong team last year. We face the "Auld Enemy" CBHS away on Friday at 5:30pm. We are playing CBHS earlier this year due to Easter and tournament conflicts.
Our first two games had 5 different scorers for MUS. Our goal keeper, Ben Cramer, had a shutout and a strong game vs Houston.
