The Cavaliers opened their
season at home on the 16th of
September by dropping a 8-0
decision to Brevard. The game
was hard fought as the Cavaliers
found themselves on the de
fense most of the afternoon.
Brevard had 56 shots on goal and
the Cavaliers maintained 48 of
those while only threatening a
few times themselves. Goalie
Keith Money was kept busy but
was violently aided in a fine de
fensive performance by the big
fullback Don Blanton.

Coaches and players alike have
expressed good feelings toward
each other. The team has no

Injuries plague the cavaliers
with Brian Pillsbury and Woody
Inscoe under doctors orders to
sideline it for five weeks. This
weakens the team on both of
fense and defense and causes
other players to double up on
the work. We wish a safe and
speedy recovery to both Pills
bury and Inscoe, and hope all the

The fighting Cavaliers fell prey
to Warren Wilson in a scrimmage
on Sept. 8th at Warren Wilson,
but the Owls outnumbered the
Cavaliers 35-16 in manpower,
that amounts to at least two teams
against one but all in all the
scrimmage provided to be a good
learning experience for the Cava
liers. For the most part this was
the first time some of the players
have ever played College soccer.
Coach Rayan was not satisfied
with the performance but said
he now better understand him.
Plagued by injuries, but with
enthusiasm abounding and a
growing love for the game, the
Cavaliers closed out their pre
season by dropping a 6-0 match
to LJNC-A. Coach Rayan reminds
us that the Cavaliers will not
have to face these teams during
the season. The competition will
be tough, the schedule gruelling
and the team will need our sup
port so . . . “Let's go Cavaliers!”
