After all the uncertainty this past week, players and coaches had to put the distractions aside and focus on the opponent at hand.
As Tri-C opened their season against Jamestown CC, the obvious absence of Tevin Williams meant their team would need to play more coherently than ever and they were tested early. In the 24th minute Jamestown’s Ford Reynolds found the back of the net with an unassisted goal, putting Tri-C in an early 1-0 hole.
To their credit, the young team from Tri-C did not panic, but instead found their form, led by sophomore’s Aaron Mohr and Ahmed Eddeb. Mohr’s 42nd minute equalizer put the boys back into the game. With momentum on their side, Eddeb put the game in his hands with an unassisted goal in the 68th minute.
Tri-C would go on to hold off Jamestown CC with a solid defensive performance including 4 saves by John-Paul Duff. Their offense was active all game long as they compiled 11 shots.
This game may have been the first of the season but it showed that the sophomores must lead by example, just like in tryouts.
