Tiger Soccer passed their biggest test of the early season Thursday night, as they defeated South Oldham 2-1. South Oldham came into the game, as the #4 team in the state and defeated the Tigers last year 2-0. Junior Trent Ennenbach and senior Colin Kremer both scored in the first half.

“This definitely gives us a lot of confidence,” Kremer said. “It’s an overall moral booster for the team to get these couple of wins in a row. We’re on a hot streak, and we’ve got a lot of confidence going.”

South Oldham struck first in the 16th minute, as they got a goal past Tiger goalie Davis George. 5 minutes later, Ennenbach scored the equalizer off a header from junior Beau Brooks.

Kremer scored the go-ahead goal and game winner in the 38th minute, as he nailed the goal from 20 feet out on a free kick. In the second half, the Tigers controlled possession and didn’t let the Dragons have many opportunities to score.

“During that first part of the first half, we were kind of shaky on defense,” Kremer said. “I just think we came out a little slow, so we just got to work on getting focused from the start and working on our communication in the back.”

This was a huge win for Tiger Soccer, as they defeated a very good South Oldham team. South Oldham was runner-up last year at the State Playoffs and just defeated a good Paul Dunbar team 3-0. If the wins against Collegiate and Daviess County didn’t prove they are contenders this year, this win against South Oldham did just that.

Tiger Soccer improves to 4-1 on the season.

NEXT GAME: Wednesday @ Male – 7:30 pm
