The Lions scored five goals in the first half and followed that with four more goals in the second to put away Legacy 9-0.

The Lions followed the blowout win with an impressive second half performance against conference rival Asheville School. Both ACA goals came in the second half, which gave the Lions the 2-1 victory over the Blues. After the two wins last week the Lions pull their record a little closer to the .500 mark and now stand at 4-7 overall. This Lions look to continue their winning streak this week with matches against Christ Church Episcopal and Providence Academy.
