ACCS boys soccer earns first district title

FLOWOOD — With the possibility of back-to-back ties in as many games looming for Adams County Christian School, Lester Wells made sure that would not be the case as his goal in the 68th minute gave the Rebels a 2-1 win over the Hartfield Academy Hawks Tuesday afternoon.

The rain held off long enough for this pivotal district game to get completed. And it turned out to be a history-making victory for ACCS’s varsity boys soccer program.

“We’re going into the playoffs as the No. 1 seed and (Class) AA South District champions,” head coach Jimmy Allgood said.

Trey Fleming scored the first goal of the match on a corner kick from Justin Allgood in the 17th minute to give the Rebels a 1-0 lead. The Hawks tied the match with just 10 minutes left in the first half to tie the match before Wells scored the winning goal.

Dylan Galbreath had 14 saves from his goalkeeper position.

“We took 19 shots on goal today. Overall, my guys played 80 minutes of soccer,” coach Allgood said. “From the opening whistle to the end, these guys left it all on the field, playing in championship-caliber form.”

ACCS (14-1-1) plays at 3 p.m. today at Manchester Academy — the Rebels’ third game in three days.
