SOUTH POINT — There were two key factors that were the difference for the South Point Pointers as far as coach Zane Joy could see.
“The defense and goalkeeper (Jaylon Halfhill) played well,” said Joy as the Pointers blanked the Chesapeake Panthers 4-0 in an Ohio Valley Conference soccer game on Tuesday.
“Chesapeake defended well. They played (Monday) night so they might have gotten tired. We were able to use our speed but they made us work for it.”
South Point (6-5-2) got the only goal they really needed when Drew Smith scored at the 21-minute mark with an assist from Marquise Yancey.
John Overstreet scored with 38:00 on the clock with an assist from Carmie McGuffin and the lead was 2-0.
In the second half, Overstreet got his scored goal with 67:00 to play with the help of an assist from Tyler Lilly.
Clemmons Magdeburg scored four minutes later and Yancey got his second assist as the Pointers completed the scoring.
Pointers’ goalkeeper Jaylon Halfhill had three saves.
Chesapeake fell to 3-8-3 on the season.
South Point visits Gallipolis on Thursday with the girls’ game at 5:30 p.m. and the boys at 7:30.
Chesapeake 0 0 = 0
