Soccer: Elizabethton turns tables on Tri-Cities Christian

Returning the favor from a loss in Blountville two weeks ago, Elizabethton’s boys soccer team tilted the momentum early and held through a foul-laden second half for a 4-1 victory over Tri-Cities Christian Thursday at Brown-Childress Stadium.

“We played pretty well,” said Elizabethton coach Bill McClay. “We came out fast, almost too fast, and then we let down a bit. We created some very good chances right in front of the goal and a couple of shots I think we waited a bit too long to take the shot, but we were in a good spot.

“Overall, we turned the result around from the last time — which we thought we should. We probably out-shot them. It was a good game and it’s good to play games like this.”
