The Oakwood Christian Middle School Eagles had their toughest test of the season on Monday, but earned passing marks with a 2-1 victory at Tennessee Christian Prep School in Cleveland.
Tomo Gilchrist scored both goals and Price Ray came up with some outstanding saves as the Eagles improved to 7-0 with one match remaining before the ISC Tournament.
"This by far was the most challenging game of the year," head coach Tony Vona explained. "Our team dug deeper than I ever expected to beat a very strong team. Our defense continued to stop their advances and our midfield closed down their passing lanes and spaces. Our forwards continued to pressure their defense, giving us many opportunities and good chances on goal. We played as team."
OCA will host Silverdale Baptist on Thursday, starting at 4:15 p.m. The league tournament will begin next Monday, Nov. 13.
