The Chapmanville Regional High School soccer team won its first game of the season with a 1-0 win at Tug Valley on Tuesday, Sept. 30.

Bryson Adkins scored Chapmanville’s only goal off a penalty shot.

“Jesse Justice had a great game, taking several shots on goal,” Chapmanville coach Valerie Thompson said. “Freshman Jacob Williamson is doing a good job as our goalie and had 12 saves. Nathaniel Blankenship and Keith Campbell both have a lot of speed on defense and are improving with every game. Morgan Evans and Bryanna Marcum both did a really good job passing the ball outside to our wings. Nate Prichard also had a great game and controlled our midfield. They are all learning and working hard. We hope to be able to finish out our scheduled games.”
