If possession is ninth-tenths of the law, the Foard soccer team would be guilty as charged.
The Tigers (6-4-1, 1-1-0) controlled the soccer ball for 72-of-80 minutes played Wednesday on their way to 5-0 Northwestern Conference win over Alexander Central (3-6-2, 0-2-0).
â€śAlexander Central tried to play a high line,â€ť said Foard coach Scottie Goforth. â€śThey tried to run the on-side trap on us. However, we adjusted our runs, adjusted a little bit on possession and focused more on just possessing the ball.â€ť
