Walker County Messenger - - Sports - By Scott Herpst

The Oak­wood Chris­tian Academy Ea­gles soc­cer team got a hat trick from Caleb Ep­per­son last Tuesday as they shut out Apos­tolic of Knoxville, 5-0, in Chicka­mauga.

Madi Phillips knocked home the open­ing goal of the match, while Ryan Scar­brough also tal­lied a goal in the win.

Gar­ri­son Baggett and Connor Shankles com­bined for the shutout in net.

“It was an amaz­ing dis­play of team work,” head coach Tony Vona said. “The kids moved the ball around the pitch with qual­ity passes and the de­fense played solid, as did the mid­field.”

Oak­wood’s reg­u­lar sea­son fi­nale was sched­uled for this past Thurs­day at home against Maryville Chris­tian. Re­sults were not pro­vided as of press time.
