The Boys Soccer team controlled much of their City Tournament quarterfinal match versus Crispus Attucks HS on Saturday, but could not find the back of the net, ending in a 1-0 upset loss to the Tigers.

CCHS controlled the ball 60% of the game with an 80% pass success rate, outshooting the Tigers 24-6.  Attucks only put one of their six shots on frame, but made it count, as a turnover inside the defensive half of the field led to a strong strike from just outside the top of the box into the top right corner with thirty minutes remaining in the game.  Covenant continued to pressure the Tiger defense for the remainder of the game, including have a goal called back late in the match, but could not score.

Attucks will advance to face #2 seeded Cardinal Ritter HS in the semifinals on Monday at Heritage Christian at 7:00 pm.  Ritter defeated Shortridge HS 2-0 in their quarterfinal match.  On the top side of the bracket, #4 Heritage Christian defeated Bishop Chatard HS and then Scecina Memorial HS to advance to face #1 seed Cathedral HS on Monday.  CHS defeated George Washington CHS in their quarterfinal match Saturday evening.
