Soccer: Scott pulls away for 3-0 win at Greenback

GREENBACK, Tenn.  |  Maybe it was a case of looking ahead to next week's important district tournament game at Anderson County.

Whatever the case, Scott High's game at Greenback on Thursday was a surprising struggle — but one the Highlanders ultimately won, 3-0, for their fourth win in six matches to close out the regular season.

Greenback, which earlier this week lost 5-1 to the same Tellico Plains team that Scott High defeated 6-0 on Tuesday, and is still looking for its first win of the season, was not expected to pose much of a threat to a Highlander team that has been on a tear in the final three weeks of the regular season.

But Thursday's game was a struggle, even though the Highlanders were never seriously threatened by the Cherokees.

scored off an assist by in the 25th minute to make it a 1-0 game, and scored off an assist from in the 33rd minute to make it a 2-0 game at halftime.

The second half saw Babb score his second goal of the match off an assist by with seven minutes left on the clock to make it a 3-0 final.

Scott will travel to Anderson County at 2 p.m. Tuesday for a District 4-2A semifinal game. It is an elimination game. The Mavs won the regular season meeting on a golden goal in overtime on April 12. The winner of Tuesday's game will likely travel to Gibbs on Thursday. The Highlanders fell to the Eagles by one goal last month.
