    University High takes South down to the wire

University High takes South down to the wire

After blowing out University High on Sept. 2, Sullivan South had to wait 80 minutes to exhale in the rematch.

The Lady Rebels' Kaitlin Barrett hooked a shot inside the left post from perhaps 20 yards out with some 10 minutes remaining in the first half and South made it stand up for a 1-0 victory.

University High lost 8-1 at South in the previous meeting, and Rebels coach Keith Parker said he warned his players about complacency prior to Monday's matchup.

"We're not pleased leaving this game," Parker said. "We left way too many opportunities on the field. We just did not pass the ball well.

"UH, they've improved vastly since we played those guys last game, but we didn't help ourselves at all in our decision making. We kept the ball too long, didn't keep knocking it around like we can."

Maya Houston, University High's talented, tireless sophomore, nearly tied the score with roughly 10 minutes remaining. She hit the crossbar from approximately 35-38 yards out on the right side of the field.

"It was a great shot," University High coach Caitlyn Epps said. "Maya Houston's a good player. I ask a lot of her."

All of UH's players seemed to answer the challenge of making a better showing against the Lady Rebels.

"I told my players at the end of the game that I couldn't have really asked for more," Epps said. "I thought we possessed the ball better. I thought we had good combinations in the offense and I thought our defense was playing pretty solid.

"But that's soccer. It happens sometimes. They get that one open chance and they get it, whereas we had plenty of chances but didn't get it."

South had several other quality opportunities. Marissa Byerley's left-footed shot from the left edge of the box was wide right late in the first half, and Briana Watlington and Barrett had decent chances in the final 17 minutes.

The skilled Barrett made an impressive run to create her shot.

Houston's skills and energy were entertaining, too.

"She's an excellent player," Parker said. "You've got to keep your eyes on her or she'll beat you. I thought (her shot) was in; I really did.

"They had us on our heels the last 15 minutes. I think, as a whole, UH — I think they outplayed us more than we outplayed them. We were just lucky enough to get a goal."

South (4-0-1, 9-2-3) visits Elizabethton on Thursday.

UH (3-6) will try to bounce back when it hosts Happy Valley today.

"We have a young team, and they've been working a lot harder as the season's gone on," Epps said. "They've been giving much better efforts during the game."
