First Presbyterian Christian Academy’s soccer teams continued to dominate as the boys and girls both won, 9-0, on Thursday against Robert Toombs Christian Academy at James Brown Park.
The Lady ’Landers are 4-0 overall and 3-0 in Region 2-AA of the Georgia Independent School Association classifications. The Highlander boys improved to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the region.
Lady ’Lander Kelsey Higgason set the tone in the first few minutes, earning her second-straight hat trick and giving the home team a 3-0 lead. Elaina Peterson scored a few minutes later, followed by goals by Asyria Daniels and Cecilia Graham to give the Lady ’Landers a 6-0 lead before halftime.
In the second half, Megan Gillon once again gave a solid performance with her signature flip throw and earned a goal from the toss in when the goalkeeper tipped the ball in. Peterson wrapped up the scoring with two more goals.
In the boys’ game, Tyler Causer, Garrett Thornton and Dylan McGarry each had two goals, and Tareak Barnes, Danny Sanchez and Robert Abrams each had a goal.
FPCA soccer coach Tom Sukaratana was pleased with how well the girls played as a unit, as well as with how the boys are setting up the assists and helping each other.
