Pocahontas County High School Warriors Mens Soccer hosted the Nicholas County Grizzlies last Tuesday night and took time out to celebrate the school’s annual Senior Night.
Seniors Jarret Taylor, Trey Rabel, Matthew Pritt, Joe Whalen and Gus Foe were recognized as this year’s senior soccer players.
Unfortunately, the night of celebration did not extend to the soccer field, as the Warriors came up short with a 0-3 loss.
Junior goalie Kyle Cohenour had eight saves on the night.
The Warriors played their last home game of the regular season October 5 against a tough AAA Greenbrier East team.
The Warriors held the Spartans scoreless for most of the first half, but couldn’t hold them forever, and the game ended, Spartans 7, Warriors 1.
Freshman Tony Duncan scored the only goal for PCHS, with the assist coming from Rabel.
Cohenour had 16 saves on goal.
The Warriors traveled to Beckley October 7 to take on sectional rival Independence Senior.
Turning things around, the Warriors came home with a 7-1 win that day.
Rabel and junior Hunter Shafer each had two goals. Taylor and Pritt and freshman Jacob Davis added one apiece.
Assists came from Shafer and sophomore Kolton Alderman with two, and Pritt adding one.
Sophomore goalies Garrett Coleman and Michael Hardesty each had four saves on goal.
The Warriors will play their last regular season game Tuesday, October 10, at James Monroe.
