It’s no wonder college scouts have been checking out the First Presbyterian Christian Academy boys soccer team and signing players. The squad finished as state runner up last season and is poised to make another state run this year. On Friday afternoon, they helped their chances by beating Alleluia Community School, 5-2, at St. James Field. Highlander Clark Sukaratana signed to Point University on Friday morning and was the first Highlander to score a goal that afternoon. That point was followed by back-to-back goals from midfielder Stanford Graham. Last week, Graham signed a scholarship to play at Middle Georgia College.
Goalkeeper Josh Kuhns did his best to ward off an attack by the visitors just before the half, but after three saves, Alleluia snuck in a goal to trail 3-1 at halftime.
The FPCA boys added two more goals in the second half of play and gave up one goal to Alleluia, winning 5-2.
The FPCA boys will face their toughest opponent Monday when they host Frederica Academy.
The St. Simons Island boys’ team trumped FPCA last year to take the Class AA state trophy.
