CENTENARY, Ohio — It’s not always how you start, but rather how you finish.
The Gallia Academy soccer team held a 1-0 lead over Southeastern Ohio Athletic League co-leader Athens early in Thursday night’s matchup. However, the visiting Bulldogs got it together and cruised to a 3-1 triumph.
The host Blue Devils (3-7, 1-6 SEOAL) struck first, when sophomore Logan Carpenter found the back of the net from long distance.
Athens got on the board in the 12th minute when Victor Davis scored on the Finn Kola assist to tie the game at 1-1. Davis gave his club the lead in the 21st minute, this time on the assist from Dustin Goetz. With time winding down in the half Sammy Morales added to the AHS momentum scoring from the base line to give the Bulldogs the 3-1 lead.
Defense was the order of the second half as GAHS senior goalkeeper Alex Greer and Athens goalkeeper Sam Conrath-Sweeney both had second half shutouts.
With the loss and Alexander’s 0-0 tie with Logan, the Blue Devils find themselves in last place at 1-6 in the league with three SEOAL games remaining. Warren defeated Jackson 3-1 Thursday night, meaning the Bulldogs and Warriors are still gridlocked at the top of the league at 5-1-1.
