Trinity boys rebound with 9-1 win over Weber

Trinity Christian’s boys soccer team rebounded from last week’s tough GISA Region 1-AAA loss with a 9-1 victory over The Weber School on Tuesday in Atlanta.

Keith Lyons had five goals for the Lions who improved to 7-1 overall and 4-1 in region play while still a game behind Holy Spirit and The Heritage School, which play today in Atlanta.

Holy Spirit enters today’s home game at 7-0 overall and 6-0 in the region while Heritage is 9-1 and 6-1 with a current head-to-head tie- breaker against the Lions thanks to last week’s one-goal victory in pen- alty kicks.

On Tuesday, Zach Wieting, Logan Smith, Chris Okpara and Jordan Flagg also scored for Trinity in the victory.

In girls action, the Lady Lions dropped a 5-0 decision to Weber. Trinity’s girls fell to 2-7 overall and 2-4 in region play.
