SHACKLE ISLAND – The Beech High School girls soccer team celebrated senior night with a 5-1 win over Dickson County. The Lady Bucs shook off their tendency not to finish and made some really nice shots in the victory.
Freshman Lily Keiser started off the scoring in the last five minutes of the first half as she corralled a rebound and banged it home from inside the goalie box. One the second goal, Kierra Berry took posession from Dickson as they were attempting to clear a corner. She drove down the right side of the 18 and knocked a nice shot past the keeper with just a minute left in the first half.
The Lady Bucs continued their slow starts but once they got going they pretty much dominated play. Starting the second half with a 2-0 lead the Lady Bucs continued to dominate posession.
Burroughs took Berry’s crossing pass and lasered it by the Cougar keeper just minutes into the half. “That first goal by Hailey might be the best combination goal we have scored since I’ve been coaching here,” said Beech coach John Ferguson. “It was absolutely beautiful., oustanding vision, five players… Abbey’s through ball was next level!”
Burrough’s added another on a free kick from 35 yards out that was an absolute laser beam. Chloe Anderson got loose in the box and slipped on in to make the score 5-0 with about seven minutes left in the contest.
The Lady Cougars scored with 4 minutes left to make the fijnal 5-1. “It’s great on senior night to be able to get all the seniors significant playing time. We played very well. We have struggled to hit the target in our past games, but got on track tonight,” added Ferguson.

On Saturday, the Beech Cross Country teams competed at the third annual Coleman Midgett Invitational at Sanders Ferry Park in Hendersonville. The event was formerly known as the Beech Invitational but was given a name change after the passing of Beech Cross Country athlete, Coleman Midgett, in 2017.
The boys team finished fourth place in the Gold Division, scoring 123 points with Ravenwood High School winning the meet with a score of 89 points. Beech was led by freshman Gabriel Cox, who finished in 7th place with a time of 16:37. “I was happy with how I ran, but I really wanted our team to finish in the top three,” freshman Jamsion Stenzel said. “But overall, I think we did what we could.”
The Beech girls team finished in ninth place in the Gold Division, with Nolensville High School taking the overall victory. Beech’s top finisher was freshman Zaely Tilt, who finished in 19th place with a time of 20:54. The girls’ team was resting two of their top runners but had a strong showing from freshman Blanca Gomez, who ran over 3:00 faster than her previous best. “I was tired during the race, but when I saw how fast I was running, I kept on pushing myself,” Gomez said.
Coach Wietecha was very pleased with the performance of his team. “Our only goal was to race hard and honor Coleman, which we did. Our boys’ team had three freshmen in our top five and a sophomore in our second position. As they continue to gain racing experience and mesh together as a team, they will only improve. I was also thrilled with how the girls’ team raced. Jordyn Evans and Blanca Gomez were asked to step up to our varsity team, and they raced like varsity athletes.”
Both squads will compete this weekend in the Southern Stampede at John Hunt Park in Huntsville, Alabama.
