He had a great game Monday night! Scored his first goal of the season, final score 1-0, and the local paper called him (at school) to interview him… he was so happy, and very proud. (You have to sign up to see the post, so I copy & pasted it.)
His only complaint? When his dad told him to search for it online the next day because he couldn’t remember the name of the paper, he said “If I have people Google it, they’ll just see all of mom’s stuff first (insert eye roll here.)”
That’s because your mom’s a really big deal. Duh.
Rams Nip THS
Maybe It Was The Shoes
By AL MYATT
Brett Koehmstedt was in the right place at the right time to lift Cleveland to a 1-0 Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference soccer win at Triton on Monday evening.
The Rams’ junior center midfielder didn’t start the game but he finished its biggest play.
“We won the ball in the midfield and made a few passes,” he said. “Lawson (Lamm) cut into the box and passed it out to me at the 18 (yard box).
“I saw no one was on me so I took the shot. I saw it go in the net and I was relieved. We weren’t getting our shots in. It was like a weight off my shoulders.”
Koehmstedt was swarmed by teammates after his first goal of the season. The Rams’ seventh straight win put them at 9-3 on the season and 5-0 in the ECC.
The Hawks battled but dropped to 3-7 overall and 1-3 in league play going into a match at home at 6 tonight with Eastern Wayne.
Triton coach Chrystal Johnston said Hawks goalie Raynor Weaver, who had thwarted the Rams until the 67th minute, was screened on Koehmstedt’s drive from the right side into the left corner of the net.
“It was blind,” Johnston said. “I could see the guy (Koehmstedt) was wide open and I couldn’t see Raynor behind another player that was out there. Raynor didn’t even see the shot being taken.”
Although the ball was obscured from Weaver’s view, there was no missing Koehmstedt’s bright orange shoes.
“I got them on soccer.com,” said the West Johnston transfer. “They’re Nike Vapors. I’ve always worn them and they feel good.
“They had two colors and I went for mango.”
