The extended season into the State Spring Fling Tournament unfortunately ended earlier than hoped for the Chester County High School Eagles Soccer team.
Though this year was the first time in the program’s history to not only win the region but contend at state, they started the tournament on fire as if they were used to playing at Siegal Soccer Park in Murfreesboro.
In just the first couple of minutes the Eagles scored with a goal by Ryan Trammel assisted by Colston Callis and ended the first half 2-0 after Chris Wilger scored with about eight minutes remaining in the half with another assist by Callis.
After going scoreless in the first half, the Millington Trojans scored themselves a goal with about 21 minutes left in the second half. Next, they scored again on a free kick in the box which tied the game putting the game into overtime.
During the extended period, the Eagles got a red card on an attempt to prevent a score and it put them a man down for the rest of the game. That was a critical call for the game which led the Trojans to get the goal they needed to win. The CCHS Eagles Soccer team lost 3-2.
As previously mentioned, this team still made their mark in CCHS history as the first boys soccer team to go to win region and go to state, with a program of nearly 20 years.
About 15 minutes away from Siegal Park, CCHS Track and Field athletes were competing in their state meet.
