Defense-minded Cougars blank Prospect Hall, 4-0
By ADELINE STAEBLER / Staff Correspondent
THURMONT, Md. - Catoctin boys soccer coach Jack Bentley tried a new formation to build up his defense against St. John's at Prospect Hall Tuesday night.
The new formation was effective when used, but the offense proved more effective as Catoctin defeated the Vikings, 4-0.
"We played a 3-4-3 (formation) tonight and I really wanted to control the midfield with our four midfielders," Bentley said. "Prospect Hall really didn't have much of a chance to get it past our midfield."
The Cougars improve to 3-4. The Vikings drop to 0-5-1.
Bentley said he expected the Cougars to control the game in the manner that they did.
"I knew we were a little more skilled than Prospect Hall. Last year they beat us 2-1 and a lot of these guys remembered what happened last year, so they wanted to come out strong this year."
