Tennessee High stymies Rebels

KINGSPORT — Tennessee High's soccer team was left lamenting several missed opportunities following their match against Sullivan South on Thursday. 

But the Vikings were so stingy on defense that the near misses hardly mattered. Jonas Schenderlein scored twice for Tennessee High — once in the seventh minute and again in the 48th minute — and the Vikings escaped South with a relatively stress-free 2-0 win in non-conference action.

Jake Slagle assisted on the first goal, which came off of a corner kick. Orlando Rosales assisted on the second tally, which came when Schenderlein made a nifty move up the middle of the field and Rosales hit him with a slick pass.

South keeper Brad Burdine managed to keep his team in the game despite the fact that the Vikings put constant pressure on the Rebels defense. Burdine proved to be sure-handed on a shot Schenderlein unleashed in the box during the 17th minute and skied through the air to punch another sure goal aside in the 30th minute.
