  • Loudon rolls past OS in soccer,...

    Dominant is the only word to describe the Loudon Redskins performance Thursday afternoon against the Oliver Springs Bobcats with a 5-1 win.
    The Redskins managed to score three quick goals to take a 3-0 lead to the half, having 14 shots on goal and preventing the 'Cats from a single solitary shot.
    One bright spot for the 'Cats in the second half was Shawn Childress scoring a goal on a Jacob Pope assist to narrow the gap to 3-1.
    However, euphoria quickly turned to anguish when the 'Skins scored back-to-back corner kicks to pull out to the 5-1 win.

    The Bobcats took control by scoring in each of their first four at bats in building a 6-0 lead after 3 1/2 innings of play.
