The Screaming Eagles opened their 2017 campaign on Thursday night against NAIA opponent Warner University. This game was the first game under new head coach, Kaelyn Watson. With an expanded roster and many young players, the Screaming Eagles look primed to have a good run this season and build stronger together both on and off the field.
While the Screaming Eagles showed great minutes of possession and strong defense, the Warner University Royals proved to be to be too much, as they were able to pull out a 5-0 win over the home team. Head Coach Kaelyn Watson stated, "This was a great challenge for us to begin the season. We are a young team, so there is great potential in this squad. I liked what I saw tonight and am excited to see this team continue to grow as we move forward."
The team is excited to move on from this loss as they look towards playing Johnson University (TN) on Saturday night at 6:00pm. Come out and support your TFC Screaming Eagles in their first match against an NCCAA opponent!
