ACCS soccer: Wells, Fleming lead explosive offense

NATCHEZ — It took only seconds for Trey Fleming to start the offensive barrage that Adams County Christian School would use to defeat Copiah Academy Saturday.

Fleming scored less than 10 seconds into the boys soccer team’s match to set the tone for the remainder of the game.

Lester Wells then added three straight goals to put the Rebels up 4-0, and they would hold on to win 6-5.

“Lester had a hat trick and did a fantastic job,” head coach Jim Allgood said. “But it was the combined effort of a host of strikers who worked very well together that allowed us to run some fantastic plays.”

Fleming finished with two goals, Dylan Galbreath added one to account for the Rebels six tallies.

ACCS huge start may have also caused the team to fall asleep some in the middle of the contest, Allgood said.

“From the opening minute the guys played hard and very aggressive,” he said. “I think once we got up 3-0, we went into a lull a bit allowing several opportunities for Copiah to get back into the game.”

Allgood said the win was a testament to the improvement the program has made in a short time.

“That was a big victory considering this team dominated us last year,” he said. “I was very proud of our offensive and defensive game against a powerful Jackson team.”

As for the extremely fast start, Allgood said he was even surprised himself.

“Our passing and attacking was top notch today,” he said. “I can’t say I’ve ever seen a goal scored in the first six seconds of a contest. It was like whistle, touch, pass, back of the net.”

ACCS improved to 4-1-1 on the year and will open district play Wednesday when it hosts Oak Forest academy.
