The Bears Boy's Soccer Team beat a very strong Alpharetta team 2-1, Friday night, March 17th. The scoring was lead off by a beautiful header from Lucas LoPiccolo from a corner kick by Ethan Rose. It was Lucas' 3rd header of the season. With just 6 minutes left in the game, Josh Winnett hit a laser shot from 20 yards out to give the Bears the lead for good.
Coach Wallace said "sometimes you have to grind one out. We ground one out tonight; I'm not sure we deserved it or not, but we won." Coach Wallace was extremely pleased with the back line and their strong physical play. Coach Wallace had told the team all week this was a "must win game for us, and I felt like we responded."
Senior Center Back, Diego Zarate added, "We just need to stay focused on who's next and stop worrying about the state playoffs".
