The stands where full with Big Red pride on September 18th when the Chippewa Valley varsity boys soccer team took on their rival, the Dakota cougars.

With the short time of only 23 seconds left in the game, and only down by one point, goalie Brian Alexiev came out of the net desperate to tie up the game. Senior Nolan Manauis drew the foul in the corner and junior, Adrian Files, crossed it to Alexiev which he then hit a head shot that tied the game up 1-1.

Senior Ryan Carney shared, “I wasn’t surprised Brian came out of the net to go across the field on to offense, he is always wanting to go out and score a goal and this time he had a chance to do so and took his opportunity.” One of the players for the Cougars was so confident that his team was going to destroy the Big Reds, he had made a bet that he would give $20 to anyone on Chippewa’s team if they scored a goal. Alexiev did not hesitate to collect his money at the end of the game.

No one would have had expected the goalie to be the one scoring a goal, especially not one that tied the game and prevented the team from taking a loss from their rivals.  “I had never expected to score a goal as a goalie, goalies come out of the net very rarely and I didn’t care what anyone thought. My coach wasn’t too mad during the game that I came out of the net but he had told me after that he was glad I did.” Alexiev said.

The Big Reds prepare for their upcoming battle at districts, starting their fight on Monday October 16th at 7pm on the home field.
