The Bradwell Tigers boys soccer squad had a three-game week, traveling to Savannah Arts Academy on Monday, hosting Windsor Forest on Tuesday and battling Johnson High on the road on Thursday.

The boys ended the week with wins against Savannah Arts and Johnson High and a loss to Windsor Forest after a double-overtime game came down to penalty kicks.

The Tigers took a 4-0 win against Savannah Arts on goals from Marcell Barton, Josh Olsen, David Miller and Chris Schuster.

On Tuesday, the boys faced region rival Windsor Forest and forced the game to penalty kicks.

"The game was tied 2-2," Tiger coach Greg Cooke said. "No one scored in double overtime, though we pressed and almost scored in the last 30 seconds, with the ball rolling just left of the goal."

Cooke said the two goals came from Chris Schuster. He also attempted the last kick, just missing the target.

The penalty kick came down to the two last shooters, with the Windsor Forest shooter missing his first shot. The coach said there was a call by the referees that allowed the Knights to re-kick the ball and they scored. Tiger Ethan Deemer had a shot to tie the game.

"He pushed it over the left side of the goal post, giving the Knights a win in a well-fought game by both teams," Cooke said.

Tigers Schuster, Kris Lewis and Miller hit their penalty shots while Brian Jackson and Deemer missed theirs.

On Thursday, the boys sought a comeback when they traveled to Savannah to take on the Atomsmashers. The Tigers took a 3-2 win in a close game.

Shuster scored 2 and Barton scored 1 goal for the win. The Tigers are 4-2 for the season.

On the girls side, the Lady Tigers were scheduled to play Savannah Arts yesterday after a change in the schedule postponed their game from Monday.

On Tuesday, the Lady Tigers ran against Windsor Forest and lost 0-3. Cooke said he expected the game against the Lady Knights would be tough as the Windsor girls are expected to place well in the region this season.

As of Tuesday, the girls are 2-2.
