OCA soccer Eagles pitch another shutout
Another balanced team effort sent the Oakwood Christian Academy Middle School soccer team a 7-0 shutout victory over Lookout Valley last Monday.
Tomo Gilchrist scored four times for the Eagles, while Mana Gilchrist, Corey Holder and Hunter Hickman each had one tally to round out the score. Hickman and John Mcdonough shared duties in goal as OCA made it four consecutive shutout victories.
The shutout streak ended on Friday, but not the winning streak as the Eagles improved to 5-0 with a 5-1 win at Boyd-buchanan.
Tomo Gilchrist and Ryan Phillips had two goals each in the victory and Isaiah Staven added one goal.
OCA’S home match with Berean Academy on Thursday was rained out and has been rescheduled for this Friday.
