GALLIPOLIS, Ohio — So nice, they did it twice.


T.G. Miller scored two first half goals on a pair of Evan Bowman assists, and the Ohio Valley Christian soccer team made that early lead stick Tuesday night following a 2-0 triumph over visiting Calvary Baptist Academy in a non-conference contest in the Old French City.


The host Defenders (4-4-1) outshot the Patriots (2-3-2) by a 19-12 overall margin, which included a 14-12 edge in shots on goal. OVCS had two of the three corner kicks in the contest.


Ohio Valley Christian took a 1-0 advantage in the seventh minute after Miller netted a pass from Bowman 20 yards out from midfield. The same everythin occurred again in the 23rd minute, allowing the hosts to secure a 2-0 edge at the intermission.


CBA missed its golden opportunity to cut the score in half with 15 minutes left in regulation, as Carter Bentley bounced a shot off the crossbar that ricocheted away from the OVCS goal.


Marshall Hood made 12 stops in net for the Defenders, while Griffin Holstein stopped a dozen shots in net for the guests.
