 The Coosa Eagles allowed two goals in the first 10 minutes and dropped a crucial Region 7-AA game Tuesday night against Murray County at home, 4-2.“Instead of hosting a playoff game, we’ll likely be traveling unless Pepperell and Calhoun beat Murray,” said Coosa coach Randy Vice.“I don’t think my guys left anything on the field. We got outplayed today. We’ve got Dade (today) and Chattooga on Thursday.”The Indians took momentum on their side in the opening minutes.Coosa asdfstarted the attack, turned the ball over in the midfield and watched as a Murray County forward broke away from the pack, stuttered to throw off the Eagles’ goalkeeper and sent a clean shot into the left corner in the seventh minute.“The first goal was a pure breakdown on defense. We had possession, and they transitioned and no one came back,” said Vice.Murray County found another defensive letdown in the Coosa backline three minutes later, notching its second goal of the game off a throw-in.“It hurt early, but I think we recovered pretty well after we scored,” said Vice.The Eagles got on the board not even a minute later, with Alan Morales finding Brayan Cornejo on a cross to the back post.“Brayan Cornejo is severely injured. He’s got a terrible strain. He normally wouldn’t be playing, but he knew how important this game was for us. He’ll be day-to-day,” said Vice.“In my opinion, it was a phenomenal effort. That young man has grown over the last four years, not just into a fine player, but a fine young man.”Coosa would have numerous opportunities over the next 30 minutes, sending shot after shot at the goal, but never connecting on the equalizer.At the half, Vice emphasized a need to focus specifically on putting the ball in the net and on throw-ins from the opposition.“We talked about having to score. That created some gaps,” said Vice.“(Murray) did a great job containing Cornejo.”One minute into the second half, the Indians struck again, knocking a free kick into the right corner to go up 3-1.Murray County continued to force the issue, holding Coosa’s attack in check and pushing their ball-movement inside.At the 58th minute, the Indians scored yet again off a throw-in, this time knocking the ball in from the back post.“Throw-in killed us against Calhoun, throw-in killed us tonight. We’re not defending those well,” said Vice.“We went over it before the game. That’s something that should never even be a factor, but it has been this year.”Jose Vasquez would connect with Cornejo on the back post from a corner kick at the 62nd minute, but it was too little, too late for the Eagles.Coosa (9-6, 9-5) hosts Dade County today, before meeting Chattooga at home Thursday.“I really want these next two games to be a change of focus,” said Vice.
