  • Boys’ soccer competing well in...

    Defeats don’t get much tougher than the one Campbell County United experienced Thursday against boys’ middle school soccer rival Gresham.

    After averaging nearly five goals a match, CC United’s B Team was shut out 1-0 at home during its first loss of the season. 

    Gresham scored on a penalty kick in the first half. It was only the fourth goal Campbell County has given up all season.

    “When you get beat by a penalty kick, it’s tough,” said CC United Coach Bryan Horton.

    “She hadn’t even practiced,” said Chapman’s jump coach, Billie Ann Evans.
