— The Cavaliers shut out Owosso Tuesday at Owosso. Kyle Gomez scored both goals from about 25 yards out in the first half. The first goal came with 24 minutes left and the second with seven minutes left in the first. The first goal was assisted by Yaakoub Aziz, while the second was an unassited goal off of a rebound. Colin Heaton got the shutout saving five shots.
“The Owosso game was up and down with Carman-Ainsworth controling 75 percent of the time,” Witham said. “If we learn to play unselfish and and make the simple quick pass, we might become a halfway decent soccer team, if we don’t it could be a tough season.”
Carman-Ainsworth played at Flint Kearsley on Monday and came away with a final of 2-2. In the first half the teams played to a scoreless draw, before Kaleb Harrison scored a goal that was assisted by Kyle Gomez three minutes into the second half. It only took three more minutes before the Cavaliers again found the net as Yaakoub Aziz scored assisted by Ammar Mohamed. The lead was short-lived however, as 20 minutes into the second half Steven Chybowski scored assisted by Simon Paterson for Kearsley, and eight minutes later Steven Chybowski scored assisted by Cody Gehrig for the equalizer.
Carman coach Jay Witham had mixed feelings about the game’s outcome.
“It was disappointing being up two nothing with 20 minutes left in the game and give up two goals because we lost focus and were not working as hard as we could,” Witham said.
Carman keeper Colin Heaton had five saves in net.
