The Vidalia High School Vikings ended their first season in program history by dropping their game Saturday afternoon in the Bi-District Round of the LHSAA Division IV Playoffs to Glemora, 7-0.

Bryce Johnson tallied seven saves in the loss at goalkeeper.

While the Vikings weren’t able to notch their first ever postseason win, coach Adam Terragnoli said he was pleased with the first year.

“Our first year far succeeded what anyone expected of a first-year team,” he said. “Many of our players that had great success this year hadn’t played soccer before the season started. Now that we have this program, we can start developing players early in their high school careers and have them grow as athletes.”

Terragnoli also commended the effort of 10 Vidalia seniors. The Vikings will lose Johnson, Leo Lozano, Josh Marsaw, Glenn Cupit, Christian Fort, Ken Hudson, Kendrick Lyons, Devyn Sandidge, Seth Vinet and Nathaniel Lopez to graduation.

“The seniors showed tremendous dedication to this program to ensure future athletes can play soccer at Vidalia High School,” Terragnoli said.

Vidalia ended with a final record of 7-3.
