CSAS Clinches 5A Regular Season Soccer Title In PK Shootout

Saturday, April 21, 2018
  In a match for the top seed in the district tournament, CSAS and Signal Mountain both came out fighting hard for the win.  The game flowed back and forth with both teams having their own chances at goal but both defenses stood strong in the end for a 0-0 tie at the end of regulation.
 
  Signal's defense, led by seniors Max Gray and Leon Menge, proved tough to penetrate especially with the solid performance of freshman Nicolas Galea in goal backing them up.
  CSAS's defense, anchored by senior Antonio Hatch and junior Will Fraser, supported by a great play from junior goal keeper Fisher Latham, proved equal to the task with a clean sheet.

  With less than five minutes left in the game, Signal's starting goalie Galea left the game after a collision in the box and senior Josh Pickett was called to step in.  As the final whistle blew, the fans nervously awaited the game-deciding PK shootout.  

  After both teams scored in the first round, Signal Mountain's Pickett made the first save in the second round proving he was up to the task in the high pressure situation of the shootout and putting the Eagles up 2-1 after the second round.  CSAS's Latham made an amazing fingertip save pushing the ball over the top bar in the third round to even the score at 2-2.  After both teams scored in the fourth round, Latham put the Patriots in a position to win with a second save.  CSAS's Will Fraser calmly stepped up to the spot and slotted the ball in the side netting for a 4-3 PK win before racing to his team to celebrate a regular season district championship.

Use Purse Building For Chattanooga Museum Of History And Industry

I was caught off-guard and pleasantly stoked by Eric Atkins' editorial on Chattanoogan.com last week suggesting that one of the soon-to-be surplused city buildings could be turned into a history museum.   I didn't think anyone other than myself that I didn't know cared, or at least would turn their thoughts into the topic of an editorial.  I believe that most of the ...

Because my stories are shared on the ... (click for more)
