The Carterville Purple Hurricanes got solid goalkeeping from Wil Jackson and Rigo Reyes in their 1-0 victory over host Coahulla Creek Friday.

Ross Pasley scored the Canes lone goal at the at the 50 minute mark.

The one-goal victory Friday night was in stark contrast to the 9-1 victory over Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe the night before.

“Coahulla Creek was a better defensive team,” coach D.J. Paradis said. “I just think we were faster off the ball tonight.”

In the win over Cedartown, Matthew Bryson netted the hat trick.

Ironically, Pasley, who scored the lone goal against Coahulla Creek did not score a goal against LFO.

His goal came from 14 yards out and beat Coahulla’s goalie to the left side of the night.

Even it was a tight game after the first half, Paradis continued to do what he has done through the first four games of the season.

“Both of our goalies are exceptional and talented,” Paradis said.”

Jackson was in goal for the first half, with Reyes coming in and preserving the win with his play in the second half.

With the win, the Canes improved to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the region.
