Cougars Win at Toccoa

(9/30/11) Clearwater Christian College defeated Toccoa Falls College 1-0 on Dean-Paul Wallace's goal midway through the first half. With the win, the Cougars moved to 2-1 in the NCCAA South Region ahead of a key region matchup with Point University on Saturday. The win was the 7th straight for the Cougars over the Eagles.

Clearwater started strong, moving the ball well as they dominated possession and created several chances to score. In the 23rd minute, a pair of freshmen contributed to the only goal of the match when Wallace got behind the TFC defense and calmly beat the keeper off an assist from James Sikes.

In the second half, the Cougars pushed hard to get the 2nd goal, but each time they were denied by the TFC defense. The Cougar defense played well in earning the shutout victory led by senior defender Matt Tewes and junior goalkeeper Anthony DeRosse.

After the match, Coach Whitaker commented, "I was very pleased with our effort tonight all the way around against a quality Toccoa team."

The Cougars will travel to East Point, Georgia to face Point University at 4pm on Saturday in their final region matchup which will determine the top seed for the NCCAA South Region Tournament at the end of the season.
