Boys soccer team falls to Bassett on the road
SoVaNow.com / March 18, 2013The HCHS boys soccer team fell to Bassett on the road, 2-0, on Thursday night.
HCHS struggled to find enough offensive consistency to get on the board.
“We had played solid through the first 25 minutes, playing good defense but didn’t possess the ball enough to generate more than just one shot,” said HCHS coach Frank Shealy.
Bassett scored with 15 minutes left in the half on a drive down the side and crossed to an unmarked man in front of the goal.
Bassett scored again in the second half as a player received a pass through the defense. The Bassett forward had a one on one with keeper Jason Denise.
HCHS had thre total shots with the best opportunity coming from Isak Schafer off a corner kick that was headed at the Bassett goalie.
Bassett had eight total shots in the game and four corner kicks HCHS had thre shots and only the one corner.
Bassett had the time of possession in their favor by 15 to 20 minutes.
“We just didn’t create enough possession and offensive opportunities to win,” said Shealy.
“Evin Morrison played another great game and he has made his presence felt in each of the games this week. We are still playing without Collin Kashmer who is out for injury and Sergio Carballo was also out for two games. That is going to hurt us and it was evident last night.
“Our effort was there but we are still working on conditioning as well as possession in practice and will continue to do so,” said Shealy.
