Bulls and Mavricks Tie Things Up 1-1

In a great early season test between unranked Hickory Ridge and the defending 3a State Champs and current #1 ranked Marvin Ridge Mavericks, the Ragin' Bulls soccer team pulled out an impressive 1-1 draw. The first 10 minutes saw the Bulls dominate play with a couple of missed opportunities to score culminated with a terrific assist from Adrian Ike to a sprinting Chris Faber to put the Bulls up 1-0 7 minutes into the match. Unfortunately, Marvin Ridge scored 5 minutes later to even the contest at 1-1. The rest of the first half was a fairly even battle that saw the only good opportunity to score thwarted by a terrific diving save by keeper Drew Andreotti.

The second half was controlled by the Mavericks but the stout Hickory Ridge defense, led by center backs Jason Hladik and Eric Frederick and keeper Drew Andreotti, refused to yield a go ahead score to preserved the well earned 1-1 draw. To be sure there was disappointment on the Bulls sideline after the match for not pulling out the victory, but a 1-1 draw vs. the #1 team in the state is quite an accomplishment for the 2010 edition of the Hickory Ridge soccer team. Coach Scott Wolfe has a lot to look forward to this year.
