Mustangs Edge Lafayette Christian, Wright Still Compiles 25 Saves

The exploits of Cougar senior goaltender Logan Wright continue.

On Monday night, Wright had another soccer match to remember. He responded with 25 saves in Lafayette Christian’s 3-0 setback to Central Georgia Arts & Athletics.

Never in his soccer life has Wright played better, harder and with more passion than in this season. Wright is one of a kind. Wright plays full tilt all the time. He takes no plays off. He takes no games off.

The Central Georgia Mustangs took 39 shotson- goal against Lafayette Christian and Wright. Only three of those shots got past the sometimes diving and sometimes airborne Wright.

“I watched my angles. I’m always learning, and I focus on the game,” said Wright.

Lafayette Christian assistant coach Andrew Klob has seen few high school goalkeepers quite like Wright, who happens to be an All-Star in the Georgia Independent Christian Athletic Association.

“Logan is an intense guy, and he always has the game focus,” said Klob.

And a dirty uniform always means Wright did his job on the soccer pitch and in front of the goal. The only scores on this night against Wright came from the Mustangs’ Will Carter from 10 yards out in the first half, as well as Jordan Rainey’s 3-yarder with 9:58 left in the second half and Seth Moodie’s penalty kick in the final minute of the soccer match.

“They possessed better and passed better. We were trying to keep them on the outside, but we knew they would be good,” said Cougars freshman defender Danny Yarborough. “They were scary.”

Lafayette Christian had few rallies and just three shots-on-goal against the Mustangs. The team from Warner Robins is 10-1 on the season.

“They are an incredible team. They work well, and they forced us to cross the ball,” said Klob.

Lafayette Christian’s only three shots-on-goal came from junior midfielder Serik Rosencrants on a 20-yarder, Jacob Teel on a 30-yarder and Teel on another scoring chance.
