Oakwood Christian Eagles

Two goals each by seventh grader Tomo Gilchrist and sixth grader Hunter Hickman helped propel the Oakwood Christian Academy middle school soccer Eagles to 4-1 win over Tennessee Christian Prep School in OCA's first home match of the season on Thursday.

Price Ray had a solid evening in net for the Eagles, who improved to 2-0 on the season.

"TCPS was loaded with eighth graders that played very strong," head coach Tony Vona said. "The key to our victory was a complete team effort. Price played an amazing game with key moment saves. Our defense was outstanding once again and our midfield neutralized their best player, making it hard for him to control the play. Again, everyone played their part brilliantly.

"We are a very young team, but the kids played like veterans and gained the victory with a lot of determination."

OCA will look to keep the momentum going with a 5:45 p.m. game at Boyd-Buchanan on Monday.
