Trinity Christian boys lose heartbreaker

For the second time in as many weeks, Trinity Christian’s boys soccer team was dealt a heartbreaking loss in its quest for a Region 1-AAA championship.

This time, unbeaten Holy Spirit foiled the Lions chances at a potential win, scoring a game-winning goal with 1:32 to play in a 2-1 victory over Trinity in Atlanta.

Down 1-0 with six minutes left in regulation, the Lions tied the game on Will Townsend’s goal off an assist from Jordan Flagg, only to have host Holy Spirit answer back moments later.

The loss dropped Trinity’s boys to 4-2 in 1-AAA and 7-2 overall.

Holy Spirit improved to 8-0 in the region and 9-0 overall.

The Lions remain a half-game out of second place due to a head-to-head loss earlier in the year to The Heritage School on penalty kicks.

The teams play again on April 17 at Heritage to close the regular season schedule.
