Game Recap

The Mountaineers traveled across Buffalo Creek on Wednesday to take on the Bulldogs of Burns High School in men’s soccer action. Both teams came out strong and the ball went up and down the field until Mason Nguyen took a slot pass from Luke Rikard and drilled a shot to the lower left hand side of the goal for a 1-0 advantage. Three minutes later it was Nguyen setting up center back, Holden Bullock, on a perfectly weighted back pass that was drilled from 25 yards out. The shot skimmed across the top of the grass and squirted under neath the diving keeper for a 2-0 early lead. Four minutes later it was Josh Scism that got into the action as he took a crossing pass from Nolan Raby and buried it from 8 yards out. Nguyen would score his second goal of the match five minutes later as he blasted a shot from 24 yards out that dipped into the right upper ninety for a four goal lead. Burns did not go down without a fight as they got on the score board off a long throw in that fell at the feet of a Bulldog player. He calmly passed the ball around the Mountaineer keeper, John Harris at the 22 minute mark for a 4-1 score. Less than a minute after the Burns score, Luke Rikard scored a tap in goal on the back post as Josh Scism set the table. It was Scism’s who got the favor returned to him as Josue Nemar Molina slid the cross to Scism that got the tap in goal just 3 minutes later. Rikard would get his second score of the night as Hunter Champion played a super through ball that Rikard collected and slotted home with 10 minutes left in the half. The final goal of the half was recorded by Mitchell Hord as he put back a deflection off a scoring attempts by Nguyen and Scism. The half ended with the Mounties defense holding strong and the offense piling up the goals with a 8-1 advantage. The second half started right where the first ended as Josue Nemar Molina scored less than a minute and a half into the period as he took a long throw in from Brandon Quevedo-Johns and dribbled in all along and slotted the ball past the Bulldog keeper. The final goal of the evening came off a nice pass from Mitchell Hord who slotted a ball between two defenders and sent Will Smith-Robinson in on a break away. Will calmly passed the ball just inside the far post for the final score of 10-1. The victory leaves the Mountaineers with a 10-2 overall record heading into the other county show down on Monday as they host Shelby. The JV will begin at 5 followed by the Varsity at 6:30.

Game Recap

East Rutherford Men’s High School soccer team traveled to play the host Mountaineers from Kings Mountain Monday night. The JV teams played first as the host team went up one to nothing in the first half on a goal from Kevin Smith. In the second half, Smith would score a second goal as Leighton Harris would add a couple goals as well to finish the game with a 4-0 victory. Silas Price and Bryce Kornegay would earn the shut-out in goal for the Mounties.
In the varsity match, it didn’t take long for the host team to get on the scoresheet as Josh Scism put his head on the long throw-in from Brandon Quevedo-Johns just six minutes into the match. The score didn’t hold long as Mason Nguyen played a perfect cross from the left corner that Nolan Raby calmly slotted into the near side of the goal at the ten minute mark. East Rutherford had a long through pass that keeper John Harris IV had to come out and snuff the shot off the foot of the Cavalier striker at the fifteen minute mark. That would be the only good look East would have the entire first half. Striker Josue Molina had several good runs down the right flank and nearly set up several Mountaineers in the last half of the first period of play. At the twenty-five minute mark Nolan Raby set the table for Scism to score his second of the half as he drove home a 5 yard tap in. The defensive back line of the Mountaineers, led by Mason Nguyen, Brandon Quevedo-Johns, Holden Bullock and Will Smith shut-out the opponents in the half and have not given up a goal in the last two and a half games. The match was called after waiting a half hour for the lightening to move off, but to no avail. The Mountaineers are now 9-2 on the season and look forward to playing county foe Burns away on Wednesday. The varsity game will begin at 7 pm due to a middle school football match being played earlier in the evening.

Game Recap

The Mounties traveled into Gaston County to play a non-conference match against a very solid South Point team. On paper it looked like a super competitive game and it lived up to it’s hipe. Both teams came into the match with 7-2 records and had not given up many goals against this season. The game began with the host Red Raiders controlling most of the possession for the first 9 minutes. Then Brandon Quevedo-Johns launched a long throw-in to the back post where co-captain, Luke Rikard headed it home for a 1-0 lead with 10 minutes gone in the opening half. After the goal the visitors began to play more confidently. Chase Yow and Mason Nguyen began to control much of the possession as the Mounties threatened on several occasions. Rikard missed another golden opportunity as his header sailed high and wide off a cross from Yow. The half would end with the visitors clinging to a single goal lead. The second half began with the Mountaineers once again feeling fairly confident as they possessed well but could not push another into the net. The last half of the second period saw the home team really step up the pressure as the Mountaineers tried to hold off their attack. Dewi Eagan came into the match of the bench and gave the visitors a boost of energy and nearly drew a penalty kick. Nolan Raby, Brandon Quevedo-Johns, Will Robinson and Hunter Champion really played some well organized defense and helped to shut-out the Red Raiders on this evening. Without the play of keeper John Harris IV the night could have been much different. “He came up real big in the last five minutes as the Raiders pressed to get the equalizer” said Coach Dan Potter. As the match ended, the Mountaineer players rushed their keeper and celebrated in the middle of the field. The next match for the Mountaineers will be against SMAC conference opponent East Rutherford on Monday night at John Gamble Stadium at home. The JV will start at 5:00 with the Varsity to follow at 6:30.

Game Recap

E. Burke visited John Gamble Stadium where they matched up with Kings Mountain for a SMAC Conference soccer game on Wednesday night. The Mountaineers wasted little time in getting some good looks at the visitors goal early and got on the scoreboard six and a half minutes into the opening half. Chase Yow headed home a perfect cross from Nolan Raby off a corner kick. Seven minutes later Will Robinson got a rebound on the right side and slipped a shot inside the far post for a 2-0 lead. Less than 2 minutes later, Chase Yow slid a nice penetrating pass off to Luke Rikard who made it a 3 goal advantage for the home side. Josh Scism took a nice ball into the corner from Rikard and beat one defender before beating the keeper for a 4-0 lead. Although the Mountaineers kept pressuring they would not score another goal in the first half. The second half opened up with a flurry of goals first by Josh Scism and then by Landon Wright before the five minute mark. Rikard and Josue Molina would set the plate for the goals. At the fifteen minute mark Rikard would notch his second goal of the match as he went in one on one and beat the keeper for a 7-0 lead. Three minutes later Josue Molina would score off another great pass from Josh Scism on the right flank. The final goal of the match came with 19 minutes remaining in regulation as Molina again went in all alone and buried the ball in the back of the net for the 9-0 margin of victory. John Harris and Richard Fernandez split time in goal for the Mounties who have now recorded 4 shut-outs so far this season. They next travel to play South Point High School for a non-conference match on Thursday evening. The JV will start at 5 followed by the Varsity at 6:30.

Game Recap

On the road were the Mountaineers as they took on the defending SMAC Champions on Monday evening. The visitors came out as hot as the weather was at game time, 90 degrees. The first 15 minutes saw the Mounties with several corner kicks and deep throw-ins that gave Chase a wake up call. Even though the visitors controlled the possession and outshot the host team in the first 20 minutes, it was Chase that drew first blood. Senior Preston Walker took a perfect through pass and drilled the ball just inside the far post for a 1-0 lead. Back and forth went the action as Luke Rikard and Josh Scism had good looks at the Chase goal but were denied the goal. “Trailing at halftime 1-0 was nothing to be ashamed of,” said coach Dan Potter. “We just had to make a couple of minor adjustments and we felt good about our chances in the second half.” Landon Wright took a nice ball to the corner and drilled a shot that caught side netting, only on the wrong side of the netting. Dane Skeith also served a great cross late in the match to Rikard, who once again, just missed scoring. Chase would again score off a set piece as Preston Walker made a nice near post run and headed in the second goal for Chase. “I was very proud of my players tonight as they never quit and really started to get into a bit of an attacking rhythm the last 15 minutes of the match,” said Potter. Chase would put some icing on the cake with just under 5 minutes left in regulation as Walker completed the hat trick on a questionable offsides call. Mountaineer keeper, John Harris, really played an outstanding job of coming off his line in the match tonight and kept the Mountaineers in the contest. The loss leaves the Mountaineers with a 2-2 conference record and an overall record of 6-2. E. Burke comes to John Gamble Stadium in KM on Wednesday with match time set at 6 pm.

Game Recap

Stuart Cramer High School men’s soccer teams came to Kings Mountain for a couple of non-conference matches on Tuesday night. The Junior Varsity began the evening with a 3-0 shut-out that set the stage for the Varsity match that followed at 6:30.
Chase Yow started off the scoring early for the Mountaineers as Josh Scism was awarded a corner kick just 2 minutes into the contest. Nolan Raby drove a super cross that deflected to Chase who made no mistake and put away the 6 yard shot for a 1-0 advantage. Luke Rikard would add to the lead at the 19th minute mark as he received a long throw in over the defenders head for a one on one with the keeper. Rikard toe poked the ball past the charging Stuart Cramer keeper, Nick Valego that just made it inside the near post for a 2-0 lead. Stuart Cramer did not go down without some serious pressure on keeper John Harris but the Mountaineers would score a third goal with just under 5 minutes to play in the half. It was Rikard once more who was on the end of a super direct kick from Mason Nguyen that really gave the Mountaineers a feeling of control in the match. Freshman Tristan Stenger played some outstanding defense before leaving the match with what appears to be a severe hamstring pull. Brandon Quevedo-Johns would clean up quite a few attempts by the visitors to play through balls. Holden Bullock also worked very well with Will Robinson to pull the visitors offsides on several occasions. The second half saw the game get a bit chippy as both teams got a bit spirited. Two yellow cards were handed out, one to each team. Half way through the second period, Josue Molina dribble deep behind the defense and back healed a perfect pass to Nolan Raby who buried the shot into the back of the net for a 4-0 advantage. The game settled down a bit then as Stuart Cramer began to control both possession and scoring opportunities. Hunter Champion deflected a very good scoring chance to preserve the shut-out with under 5 minutes to play in regulation. John Harris came up with a couple nice saves on his way to the 3rd clean sheet of the season.
The Mountaineers next travel to take on the defending SMAC Conference Champions, Chase High tomorrow. Chase is once again undefeated in conference play and are looking to repeat in 2016. The Mounties are now 6-1 overall with a 2-1 conference record. Their next home match will be next Wednesday when E. Burke comes to compete. The match will begin at 6 pm as E. Burke does not have a JV team this season.
