GALLATIN - Station Camp High School had little trouble with visiting Rossview on Tuesday night as they rolled to a 7-0 victory in the Region 5-AAA semifinals. They will move on to play Clarksville Thursday in the Region 5-AAA championship game.

The Bison (17-0-2) were led by senior forward Chase Freeman and his three goals as well as midfielder Caden McGranaghan who had two assists. Junior Atakelti Gebregzabher finished the night with two goals of his own while Josh Street and Giovanni Balderas scored the remaining two goals for the Maroon and White.

Station Camp never seemed to be challenged by Rossview as they kept the ball on the offensive side of the field most the match.

"We played well tonight, we stuck to the game plan. Everything we went over in our meetings, everything we went over in training they performed to a T tonight," said Station Camp head coach Tom Morand. "To get that goal early and give us momentum and keep our composure after is what we have been talking about. They showed that tonight, very pleased with their performance all around."

The Bison lost a key member of their unit early in the match when Riley Indermuehle went down with what seemed to be a hip injury. However, with Station Camp being so dominant this year there have been many games where the second unit gets valuable playing time. That paid off tonight.

"And to lose Riley early in the game like that, a starter that has started every game; everyone else had to step up," added Morand. "Stone (Bresnahan) comes off the bench, he was really solid. Great, great performance."

Morand was able to rotate all three all keepers in the game.

"Eli (McCormick), Chris (Palevo), and Alex (Sanchez) have sacrificed for everyone," Morand said. "Those three guys could play anywhere, and they have bought into what we are teaching them. They cheer for each other, they are not selfish. They sacrifice their individual goals for team goals every day, every match, all three of those guys. They are amazing."

The region final Thursday will be played at Station Camp at 7 p.m.
