Valdosta soccer teams beat Colquitt

MOULTRIE — The Valdosta boys’ varsity soccer team beat Colquitt County 5-3 Monday night in Moultrie.

After trailing 2-0 at halftime, the Wildcats outscored the Packers 5-2 in the second half, earning the non-region win.

Colquitt County started the second inning with a goal, building a 3-0 lead. Then, Valdosta scored three goals in the next 25 minutes to even the score at 3-3. Colin Kirkpatrick found his way behind the defense of Colquitt to score twice, bringing Valdosta within one.

Spencer Thomas scored off a corner kick and placed it in the upper right hand corner.

In overtime, Kirkpatrick scored again on a misplay by the Colquitt goalie. Just one minute later, Dale Kent scored on a direct free kick from 20 yards out.

Colquitt pushed to score late but Valdosta's back line stood tall, anchored by senior captain Jamel Armstrong. The Wildcats host Camden County Friday night in their Region 1-6A opener.

  • Lowndes_McPherson.jpg Milestones on tap for upcoming season

    Some milestones are destined to occur, like when Georgia Christian hosts David Emanuel on Aug. 22 in the Generals’ first varsity football game since the late 1960s.
    Others will have to wait and see what continues to take shape come Friday when teams can begin fall practice, and especially Aug. 1 when teams can suit up in pads for the first time, such as can Valdosta win its record 24th state title, or can Lowndes capture its fourth state championship under Randy McPherson, or can Valwood and coach Ashley Henderson play in its third straight GISA state championship game?
    As we start to find out the answers to those questions in just a few short weeks — the regular season is just 31 days away — there should be a few more milestones for area coaches to mark 2014 right along with the Generals getting back on the gridiron.

    If Ed Pilcher had his way, Berrien High would never throw the football.
    But that doesn't mean the veteran coach doesn't enjoy the opportunity that a passing league, or the six-team passing camp at Cairo on Thursday morning, can provide his Rebels.
