Quality Victory for Trojan Soccer

By Thomas Sellers Jr.

Soccer Austin Smith on ball Soccer Brighton v MillingtonLast Thursday the Millington Trojan Soccer team traveled to Brighton for a Highway 51 showdown.
The host Cardinals jumped out to a 1-0 lead on the Brighton Soccer Field. But Millington answered with two goals in the first half and survived a penalty kick from Brighton with no time left on the clock to win 2-1.
After Brighton’s Demetrius Frisson scored at the 36:37 mark of the game, the Trojans settled down on defense in front of goalie Hunter Beckham.
Beckham made several saves in the first half including a slap save on a penalty kick. Meanwhile Millington got goals from Austin Smith (31:55 mark) and Antonio Roddy (11:50 mark).
“Austin Smith fired a rocket from 30 yards out to tied the score,” Millington Head Coach Larry Dagen said. “We go ahead on a cross from Jerrett Everson finished by Antonio Roddy closing the first half. There was no scoring the second half.”
Brighton almost had a score to tie the game on a controversial call. Brighton was awarded a PK after regulation time concluded. Despite the Millington objection, the Cardinals had a chance to deadlock the game but missed.
