Covenant Academy High School soccer seniors were honored during the team’s matchup with Lighthouse Christian Academy.
Honored during the game were Hannah Griffin, Samuel Wright, Jeel Patel and Taylor Madewell.  Although the Lions came into the game with only one loss, Lighthouse played a tough game and took the contest 2-1.
“Although we lost a very hard-fought game, our high school has had a lot of success this year,” said Covenant soccer coach Chris Madewell. “We are 7-2 on the season and finished second place in the regular season.”
Lighthouse scored early in the first half, but Covenant knotted the score at 1-1 by the break after a goal by Lion Lance Curtis. With a lot of back-and-forth in the second half, Lighthouse beat the keeper for the winning goal at the nine-minute mark and settled on the 1-point lead for the remainder.
Leaving everyone with their favorite soccer moment:
“My favorite soccer memory was when I tackled the biggest guy on the opposing team and stole the ball from him,” – Jeel Patel, college: TTU.
“My favorite soccer memory was when I headed a goal kick and the rebound flew almost the length of the field back into their goal box,” – Hannah Griffin, college: Bryan College or Motlow.
“My favorite soccer memory was when Coach Madewell asking me after an injury if I just wanted to become the team manager,” – Samuel Wright, college: TTU.
“My favorite soccer memory is playing with my closest friends and winning a lot of games,” -  Taylor Madewell, college: TTU.
Covenant begins the Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference tournament May 9 at home against Currey Ingram at their new field titled “The Pridelands” located just off Manchester Highway across from the Shell gas station.
