The J.H. Rose soccer team left South Central with a 4-1 win on Tuesday.

Consistent ball possession by the Rampants allowed scoring opportunities to present themselves. Rampants captains Tyre Taft, Johnathan Daniel and Bryce Odom all scored in the victory. The other Rose tally was an own goal by Falcons goalie Ethan Cook. Jamie Crass was the lone scorer for SC.

“The key to the win was moving the ball around, possessing and moving the ball right up the middle of the field,” Rose manager Sam Lee said. “Once we started switching positions and moving around, it finally opened some room and gave us some gaps to score in,” 

The Falcons’ luck was absent for most of the game, as a stifling Rose defense forced turnovers by Falcons forwards and midfielders who couldn’t find any room to pass or shoot the ball. 

Twenty minutes into the first half, Taft fired a shot at Cook that bounced off the crossbar and back into Cook. He failed to recover in time and the ball bounced behind him to give Rose an early lead. Momentum continued to swing in the way of the Rampants, as SC’s David Day picked up a yellow card for a tackle from behind. 

Taft found the back of the net before the end of the half, scoring with just over nine minutes left to put Rose up 2-0. 

A fresh half allowed the Falcons to reset. They took momentum early, as Crass pushed through the center of the field with the ball and took a shot which was stopped but not recovered by Rose goalkeeper Trey Burelson. Crass continued to attack, knocking the ball from between Burleson’s legs to get SC on the board, 2-1. 

With 25 minutes left in the game, Rose’s Michael Valverde took a shot from outside the penalty box, and the curve looked good but the shot bounced off of the crossbar right into the head of Odom for the score to increase Rose’s lead to 3-1. 

The Rampants added one last score to ice the game. Some fancy footwork around Falcons defenders and a solid shot from Daniel finished off the.

Rose (6-1-1) will continue conference play as it hosts C.B. Aycock on Thursday. SC (5-0-1) will also play host Thursday as it takes on Southern Wayne.
