KVA, Trinity of Raleigh play to draw
The Kerr-Vance varsity soccer team tied Trinity Academy of Raleigh 1-1 Tuesday night.
Trinity opened the scoring in the first half about seven and a half minutes into the game. The rest of the half remained even with neither team being able to find the back of the net.
“In the first half, we didn’t play to the game plan,” Spartan coach Devon Honeywell said. “For 20-25 minutes, we weren’t doing what we should. As a result, we gave up a soft goal due to lack of communication. But, the guys stepped up in the second half.”
Less than 30 seconds into the second half, Joseph Burnette scored on a shot the Trinity goalie couldn’t handle.
KVA controlled the ball for much of the second half, but couldn’t find another goal although there were several near misses.
“We created many more chances in the second half and moved the ball,” Honeywell said. “We maintained possession and that creates scoring chances.”
Honeywell praised the play of James Averette, Joseph Burnette, Sam Fuquay, and Drew Griggs.
The Spartans play their first home game of the season Friday against Ridgecroft.
