Varsity Boys Soccer Team Celebrates Exciting Overtime Win

The Varsity Boys Soccer team has played two games following our return from Spring Break. Last Tuesday, the Eagles took on Beaufort Academy. Head Coach Chris Shimakonis says the team looked a little sluggish and eventually let Beaufort get out too far to catch. He says the team gave up three easy goals and just couldn't get their shots on target.

But Friday night was a different story. PCA came ready to play! After falling behind 1-0 in the second half, Grant Lonneman tied the score with about 10 minutes left in regulation. After 2 overtime periods, the Region game would be decided by shootout.

Chad Shimakonis, Kendall Chakeris, Andrew Lindenmeyer, Grant Lonneman and Stephen Hickman scored in shootout. Senior Goalkeeper Michael Pernell, made 2 key saves to seal the 2-1 victory.

Coach Shimakonis was pleased with the team and its fans, "The boys played great all night. Our defense came to play and that was the difference from Tuesday to Friday. Loud PCA crowd and a great night for our team."
