ACA Soccer Continues its Winning Streak

Will Tamplin

The Asheville Christian Academy soccer team is bruised and battered but have found a way to remain unbeaten.

Multiple players have fallen victim to injuries but the Lions have managed to patch things together as they eye another deep run in the NCISAA state playoffs.

Last week the Lions maintained their dominance over their competition by outscoring their opponents 13-1.  In fact, over the course of the season, the Lions have outscored their opponents 40-4. 

On the road in Charlotte against Carmel Christian, the Lions cruised to a 6-0 win and followed that up with a match at Enka High School by winning 7-1.  The Lions push their record to 10-0-1 overall.

ACA will take a much-needed spring break this week and will be set to return to action next week with a home match against Carolina Day followed by a highly anticipated showdown on the road at AC Reynolds.

The weather played havoc on the ACA golf team last week washing out a couple matches.  The only time the Lions hit the course was a conference match in which the Lions placed third out of four schools.  Christ School won the tournament with a low score of 147.  Rabun Gap finished second with a 161 and the Lions posted a 174.  Carolina Day came in fourth with an 183 overall score.  ACA senior Will Tamplin paced the Lions with a low score of 39.

The Lions will return to action after spring break hosting the ACA Invitational and then take on the Greenies from Christ School.

In other ACA action the Lion baseball team fell to Christ School 7-2 last week.  The tennis team lost to the Greenies 6-1.  The ACA track and field team were rained out all week.
