Ridge Creek Eagles beat the Warriors of Cherokee Christian

Today the Ridge Creek Eagles flew down to Woodstock, Georgia to take on the Warriors of Cherokee Christian. In a hard fought first half, the first goal of the game went to Alex assisted by Jack and Scott. Cherokee Christian fought back and scored before the half to tie it at 1-1. The second half was a defensive stand for Ridge Creek as the defense led by Jake, Frankie, and Jack. The Ridge Creek Eagles with about 15 minutes left in the game, got a break and Braden shot the ball which deflected off a defender and went into the goal to have the score read 2-1 us. For the next 15 minutes and entire second half, Jeff in goal saved 12 shots and at times got vertical as well as horizontal to make amazing saves. When the time ran out, the Ridge Creek Eagles won their first soccer game of the season and leaving Jeff as player of the game! It was an exciting end to a long week. Next game is against Horizon Christian Academy on Tuesday in Cumming, GA. Our first home game is Thursday against Gables Academy out of Stone Mountain, GA. Hope to see everyone there next week.
