HAGERSTOWN -- South Hagerstown goalie Drake Kessell won't be blamed by coach John Chirgott for Tuesday's 20-3 loss to Catoctin.
"We thought we had a chance to hang with them," said Chirgott.
That chance began to dwindle in the first quarter and was out of reach by halftime as the Cougars pulled away to a 13-0 lead.
"You can't blame the goalie," said Chirgott. "Our defense, the midfielders, they weren't picking up the sliders across the attack zone."
Catoctin had little trouble getting inside the attack zone successfully as the Cougars peppered the South goal with 27 shots -- 25 on goal -- and made 74 percent of them.
Most shots were from inside 10 yards, making it tough on Kessell as he faced a barrage of attackers. Kessell did make five saves.
