FLC earns big soccer victory

After a deadlocked first half, knotted up at 1-1, Forest Lake Christian’s varsity soccer team came out shooting in the second half to edge Sacramento Waldorf 3-2 Wednesday night and improve to 4-0 in the Central Valley Christian League.

Twelve minutes into the second half, Taylor Bigelow crossed the ball over to the right side of the goal and off the keeper’s fingertips, but Jared Hiscock chested the ball into the net for a 2-1 advantage.

Then, in the match’s 32nd minute, Mike Vella took a long pass from Jason Allgeier and scored the eventual game-winner for the Falcons.

“We really played well in the second half,” said FLC head coach Thad Kopec. “And our midfield played really well today, with Mitch Seman and Carter Kaminski. On defense, Jeff Pulliam had a good game. You know they played hard when they walk off the field and you almost have to hold them up.”

Waldorf’s Chris Tobin-Campbell, who also scored in the first half, closed out the afternoon’s scoring with a goal in the final minute of the match, but it wasn’t enough to catch FLC.

Seman scored FLC’s lone goal in the first half.

The Falcons (7-5-1) travel to Woodland Christian Tuesday for another CVCL matchup.
