Etowah High School
Cherokee High School
The Warriors took on county rivals, Etowah Eagles, in their second region match of the year. Both teams came ready to play from the first whistle and the game was close all the way to the end. The Warriors and the Eagles had opportunities to go ahead in regulation, but were kept scoreless through some great saves and defensive plays.
However, the Warriors eventually gave up the first goal of the match in OT. The ball was on the line as the defenders tried to clear it, but it barley ended up over the line through the effort of the Etowah forward. Etowah would add a second goal in OT as Cherokee was caught pushing up for the tying goal.
The Warriors battled hard Friday night and proved that they will not go down easy. They are now 1-1 in the region with 3 region matches left to play. Their next match will be Tuesday as they host Walton High School. Come out and support your Warriors at 5:30pm!!
