Boys Varsity Soccer · Varsity Boys Soccer in Action

Tuesday, August 18, couldn’t come any sooner.  The boys soccer team had this date circled on their calendar for months.  They were excited to get back on the pitch.  Maybe too excited.  Decatur took the early lead 3 minutes into the game with a beautiful cutback in the box and an upper 90 placed shot.  The Achaeans would settle down and go into the half down 0-1.  Again within the first 3 minutes of the 2nd half, Decatur would score to make it 2-0.  Herron would not go away that easy.  Senior Diego Wong would fight his way through 2 defenders and score less than 60 seconds later.  The game would go back and forth the rest of the way.  Senior Captain, Jaden House, had the best chance to tie the score with 5 minutes remaining.  Although it was from 40 yards out but a laser over the keeper.  The ball would hit the underside of the crossbar and bounce straight down and out.  A few minutes later, House would have another chance on a cross but the header went wide.  The Achaeans will go on the road to face Bishop Chatard next Thursday.  Look for ticket information soon.  JV will start at 6:00 and Varsity at 7:30.
