In a game which resembled more of a baseball or softball score, the Crosspoint Christian School boys soccer Cougars won a high-scoring game over Fulton School of St. Albans Tuesday, 8-5.
Crosspoint improved to 2-0 overall with the Metro Athletic Conference victory over Fulton St. Albans.
“Fulton is always a tough place for us to play, and we struggled with the smaller field again today,” Crosspoint Coach Mike Hopkins said. “I thought Gavin Mehrhoff and Jonny Aholt played particularly well, and Clay (Williams) and Zach (Alberson) did a good job finishing.”
Fulton School Head Coach Dylan Hundelt praised his team for fighting to the end.
“They didn’t give up until the whistle blew,” Hundelt said.
Alberson netted four goals in the game and now has nine goals in two games this season. Williams ended the game with three goals.
Mehrhoff gave Crosspoint the early lead in the game with a 10-yard goal from the right side. He then assisted on Alberson’s first goal five minutes later.
Crosspoint led 4-3 at the intermission with additional goals from Williams and Alberson to lead 4-3 at the break.
Alberson and Williams each scored twice in the opening 20 minutes of the second half to put the game out of reach.
Christian Howell scored three of the Fulton St. Albans goals. George Douglass and Brennan Fox each had one assist.
The Cougars play Friday in Columbia with a game at Christian Fellowship. Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. The two schools have played for the Missouri Christian Schools Athletic Association state title in two of the last three years.
