Athletic Results from Wednesday, September 28


  • Middle School Soccer played a very evenly matched game against Providence Day yesterday on a soggy front-field.  The game was tight throughout most of the first half, with Adam Kurtz and Cole Lippincott playing solid defensively.  Chandler Frazier entered the game around the 18th minute and quickly put the Cougars on top, 1-0.  The Chargers would answer just 4 minutes later and the teams would take a 1-1 tie into the half.  The Cougars adjusted their formation to produce a bit more offense and Adam Kurtz found himself loose on a breakaway before being taken down in the penalty area.  The Charger goalie would make a fantastic save on the penalty kick to keep the game at 1-1.  Shortly after, PDS would make a run of their own and score what would become the game winner.  The team played very well and hustled throughout the 60-minute game until the final whistle.  Final score Cannon 2, PDS 1

  • The boys varsity soccer team lost to Providence Day, 2-0.  The Cougars best chance to score came in the first half with the score tied at 0-0.  David Sirois crossed to Baylor Koch whose one-time effort went wide of the goal.  Cannon gave up two goals late in the game, one was a deflection of a Cougar defender and the other a defensive miss-communication which lead to an open goal tap in.  Paul Anderson provided an offensive spark for the Cougars in his first career varsity appearance.  Goalkeeper Scott Krusell had another fine performance.
