A goal by Kenan Ruffner and strong defensive play allowed the Fred T. Foard soccer team to pick up its eight win of the season and sixth shutout.
â€śComing into tonightâ€™s game we knew Hibriten was coming off of a draw with St. Stephens on Monday,â€ť said Tigers coach Scottie Goforth. â€śWe wanted to make sure we took advantage of our possession and take care of the ball. I feel like the boys did that really well.â€ť
Ruffnerâ€™s goal came at the 24th minute on a corner kick by Khong Lo. The kick went in front of the net and was driven in on a header by Ruffner.
â€śOur passing was just there for us tonight,â€ť Goforth said. â€śWe got a nice goal from Kenan Ruffner on that corner. Our chances were close. We had several opportunities that went wide.â€ť
The Tigers were able to maintain the pace of the game on their way to the NWC victory.
Goforth gave credit to his midfielder.
