Friday night, Bradwell Institute’s soccer team took their first step toward winning the region title. Chris “Prince” Schuster scored two goals to help lead the boys to a 2-0 over perennial region power Windsor Forest 2-0.
Tiger goalkeeper Michael Griffin was impenetrable in goal, earning his seventh shutout of the season as the Tigers improve to 9-1 in the region. Meanwhile, the Knights fall to 7-3.
“I call this a first step for the rest of the season,” BI coach Greg Cooke said. “This had to be No. 1. We play Windsor Forest again in a week and Johnson, who beat them, next week. As great as this win is, we have four more games we must win if we want region.”
The Tigers are off until April 10, when they host Johnson at 7 p.m. They play Windsor Forest in Savannah on April 13 at 7 p.m.
Windsor Forest coach Cam Turner was impressed not only with the Tigers’ play but also their sportsmanship.
“In the past, they’ve had a couple of bad apples. I told them this is the classiest team I’ve seen in 10 years of coaching,” he said. “They are also one of the best teams I’ve seen. Coach Cooke has done a great job with them and they’re having a phenomenal season.”
Cooke said he was impressed with his team’s defense, which gave the offense the opportunity to score.
“We played a very good game. Their (Windsor Forest) keeper was wonderful. Our score should have been higher but our defense needed to step up and it did,” Cooke said. “They came out here to do a job and they did it.”
Chris Cardon did a terrific job on defense, along with midfielders Daniel Lee and Trey James.
“Though we have goal scorers, it’s the workers that get things done and hold teams scoreless and give our forwards chances to score goals,” Cooke said. “As a team, we’re really gelling and I’m proud of them.”
Schuster is very excited and said as long as the Tigers keep on winning, everything’s fine.
