The Indians who had been struggling to find some offensive consistency and wins this season were hoping that they could put it all together against the visitors from Grant County.

The Indians scored first, but had to rally late in the game to pick up the 4-3 win.

Freshman Tristan Romo had three goals while senior Aaron Farris tallied the other goal for Berkeley Springs. Casey Youngblood had 10 saves in between the posts for the Tribe.

“Our formation still needs tweaked to accommodate the available skill sets of current players. Our passing is off, we are still doing a lot of "dump and run" kicks. Our players not attacking the balls and waiting on passes,” stated head coach Kevin Barney.

The Indians got goals from senior Farris and sophomore Christian Salinas.

The Indians used three goal keepers throughout the course of the game and they tallied 19 saves. “We used three goaltenders, Casey Youngblood in the first half, and Tristan Hancock and Remington Hiles in second half. We implemented a new formation in attempt to maximize the available skills and did a lot of moving to see who played better where and who had stamina for the positions. Although we lost the team played much better than in previous games. Our basic skills were looking better and passing improving,” stated Barney.

The Indians will be back in action this week when they host Bishop Walsh on Friday, September 15 at 5 p.m. Then on Saturday, September 16 the Tribe will travel to Hampshire for an 11 a.m. game.
