Wet, Cold Do War Eagle Soccer No Favors

The War Eagle boys soccer team got off to a slow start in district as they took one on the chin losing to College Park 5-1.

The game also got off to slow start due to the wet, cold conditions. After several early misses by College Park, the War Eagles Martin Gonzalez struck the post on a  counter attack which seemed to wake up the Cavaliers. At the half, CP had a 2-0 lead.

The second half was more of the same with CP racking up the possession and shots ongoal. Oak Ridge’s Jose Mendoza was able to get a late goal to eliminate the shutout.

Oak Ridge is now 0-1 in district and 3-4-1 overall as they hope to get back on track on Friday in hosting Conroe at War Eagle field.

College Park   2    3   —  5

Doug Sarant, Oak Ridge Now

Born and raised in New England, Doug promises he got to Texas as fast as he could. He earned the much needed "piece of paper" from Sam Houston State, proving to himself he could start and finish something. Doug's interests include coaching and playing any sport and still plays lacrosse competitively. He also enjoys going to dinner theaters, though he complains there just aren't enough of them in the area. Doug was brought up in a cultured environment, having suffered through dozens of symphonies and operas with his way too over-educated mother. At the end of the day, Doug is just a dad and husband and claims to be good at both.
