With iffy weather in the forecast, the boys’ soccer team kicked off the AHSTW double-header at 4:30 p.m. yesterday, May 1. The game ended in a loss of 2-1, with senior Brady Dickerson scoring Atlantic’s only goal in the first half. AHSTW had no goals until the second half.

Senior Night followed the boys’ game, recognizing members of soccer, tennis and golf and their parents. The girls’ game started quickly after in an attempt to beat the weather. However, the game was not played long before lightning struck and a 30-minute delay was called. More lightning occurred after, causing the game to be postponed to a later date. The game will start how it ended, with the score at 2-0 and 17 minutes left in the first half.

The Lady Vikings scored their first goal of the game in minute 31 and shortly after they were given a Penalty Kick (PK) for a foul in the goalie box. Number 11, Jordyn Holtz, took the shot and slipped it past the Trojan’s goalie, sophomore Corri Pelzer.
