The All-State forward was the only UH player to produce a point in every conference game with either a goal or an assist last season as he earned his 4th consecutive All-Conference selection and was named to the All-Region team again. Page ended his stellar soccer career Page at UH with 59 goals and 53 assists for a total of 171 points for an average of 2.3 points per game.

Along with his assists records at UH, Page ended his career in the top 5 for goals scored, steals and points earned categories at UH, along with the distinction of having the fastest goal scored in a varsity game by a freshman when he scored a goal in the first 22.5 seconds of the start of it.

Page expressed his appreciation to the Tennessee Sports Writers Association for the All-State selection honor and credited his teammates and coaches at UH for his success on the pitch during his high school career!

Gatlinburg-Pittman 3, University High 0

GATLINBURG—In the Region 1-A semifinals, University High fell prey to defending state champion Gatlinburg-Pittman on a cold May evening in the Great Smoky Mountains.

The Bucs held their opposition scoreless in regulation, giving everything they had. However, with the UH legs spent, G-P's continued rotation of substitutions proved too much in the end. The Highlanders took control in the first overtime period, netting all three goals.

UH closed its year with a 14-5 mark, the most single-season wins in school history. Playing the final time for the Bucs were seniors Austin Baines, Malachi Heath and Walker Page, who accounted for nearly 70% of the Bucs' offense with either a goal or an assists over their four-year careers.

Chuckey-Doak foils Buccaneers for 1-A soccer crown
Gene Renfro • Updated May 9, 2019 at 10:17 PM

University High watched as Chuckey-Doak scored three unanswered goals for a 3-2 win in the District 1-A boys soccer championship on Thursday.

With the outcome, University High (14-4-0) will have to travel for Tuesday's Region 1-A semifinal contest at Gatlinburg-Pittman. Chuckey-Doak (8-7) has Berean-Christian on the slate in Afton.

"Give them credit, they are a good team," Bracken Burns said about Chuckey-Doak. "They worked hard and capitalized on their opportunities. We had some opportunities that we left on the field. I can't take anything away from the way they played. We're disappointed to finish second instead of first, but we're still alive."

The Bucs struck in the opening moments to take the lead, with Malachi Heath accounting for the ice-breaking goal. The 25th minute resulted in Walker Page sending a rebound to the back of the net after a Black Knights save.

Braden Binaghi got the scoring started for the Black Knights when he sent a ball into the box. The ball took a hop over the Bucs' keeper and found the back of the net. That came in the 38th minute.

Binaghi struck again in the 62nd minute when he stole the ball at the top of his own box. From there, he went the distance down the sideline and sent the ball into the far corner of the goal.

The eventual game-winning score was booted home by Brendan Shipley a minute later.

University High had a couple scoring chances, one shortly after the visitors took the lead. Pate Anglin had a shot barely saved by Justin Gregg that led to a corner kick. The 75th minute saw Moses Rathbun find the ball in front of the net, but the packed-in defense prevented the goal.

The Bucs took both regular season meetings against Chuckey-Doak this season, but Thursday did not go University High's way. It marked the second straight season Chuckey-Doak beat the Bucs in the District 1-A title tilt.

UH claims regular-season title in District 1-A soccer
Johnson City Press • Updated Apr 25, 2019 at 11:15 PM

It's been University High's year in District 1-A soccer.

There was no change in the narrative on Thursday night.

Scoring on an own goal three minutes into sudden-death overtime, University High defeated second-place Chuckey-Doak 3-2 to clinch the regular-season championship.

The match-ending sequence started with a corner kick by Bracken Burns, then a Black Knights defender headed the ball into the net.

The outcome moved the Bucs (11-2) to 5-0 in district play, dealing Chuckey-Doak (5-7) its second league setback.

UH came out strong, striking twice for a 2-0 lead. The first goal came from the foot of Moses Rathbun, then Walker Page drove a rocket past the Knights' goalkeeper.

Chuckey-Doak got on the scoreboard right before halftime to make it 2-1.

At the 20-minute mark of the second half, UH appeared to have struck again when Page laid a perfect 40-yard pass to Rathbun for what appeared to be a goal, but after much discussion the center ref waved it off due to an offside infraction.

The Knights capitalized on the Bucs' frustration, quickly producing a goal to knot the score.

MOSHEIM—University High showed why it's in first place in District 1-A, proving too much for West Greene.

The scoring got started when Bracken Burns placed a corner for Pate Anglin, who headed the ball into the net. Ten minutes later, Will Owen crossed the ball to Malachi Heath, who headed it in for the second goal.

UH went up 3-0 when Andrew Jarvis found the ball of the net. With 10 minutes left in the first half, forward Walker Page took the ball away from two defenders and hit a quick turn-around shot. In the second half, West Greene held the Buffs in check until the final four minutes, when UH collected an own-goal after a hard shot by Burns.

Sullivan South 3, University High 1

KINGSPORT—Sullivan South scored the match's first two goals on sideline throws into the box, and that would be enough to lift the Rebels past University High.

The Buccaneers slashed the lead to one when Malachi Heather, feeding off an assist from Andrew Jarvis, knocked in a goal. South, however, converted again two minutes before halftime.

The second half remained scoreless as UH often controlled the ball and had numerous shots on goal — but could not capitalize as the Rebels defense held firm.

The Bucs, now 9-2, head into next week playing four games in five days as they prepare for the playoffs.
