COSBY—Despite having to overcome what seems to be a traditionally slow start, the Cosby Lady Eagles claimed their second win on the pitch this season on Tuesday night.
The Lady Eagles survived a lull in the opening portions of the match, only to explode for three goals over a 15-minute span in the opening half to post a 5-1 Region 1-A/AA victory over Cumberland Gap High School. The win improves the Lady Eagles to 2-1 overall and 1-1 in regional play.
“We’re phenomenal for taking our time getting warmed up,” Cosby coach Ken Green said. “I don’t know if the girls trying to read what’s going on, it seems like a big tradition for us, but it’s got to change.”
