A terrific effort from the Lady Eagles resulted in a 1-1 tie with ACAA rivals Columbia County Christian School on Tuesday. Tough and physical play from both sides dominated the mood and pace of the match as both teams battled hard in the middle third of the field until Cierra Gross took a pass from Brianna Baumert and slid it past the Defender’ keeper  just 7 minutes from halftime.

The second half proved just as competitive with brilliant defensive work from the Lady Eagles as they pushed back the increased offensive rushes. At the other end, Marissa Spangler rang one off the post and CCCS almost scored an own goal due to a defensive error. But with time winding down and pressure mounting, the Defenders netted the equalizer earning each team one point in the standings.


The boy’s team picked up a much-needed ACAA win tonight. With 1:37 left in the first half Adam Clemens split the defense to send a perfect ball onto Seth Kabonick’s foot to send Seth to the net. Determined, Kabonick placed the ball into the lower 90 for the first goal of the game. After a lot of back and forth play with CCCS it looked like either team could score at any time. SCA needed that assurance goal but it just was not coming. Finally as time ticked down in the last-minute Seth Kabonick sent in a nice chip inside the box as Karch Carey found the ball in front of the net with 37 seconds left on the clock to seal the victory for the Eagles as they finished with a score of 2-0.
Both teams are back in action Thursday night as they host New Covenant. Come on out and cheer the teams on, the weather has been perfect for soccer.
