Lions roar to SCISA 1A championship
Holy Trinity avenged last season’s loss in the championship game and won the SCISA 1A girls soccer state title with a dominant 8-0 victory over Cambridge Academy on Friday at Porter-Gaud in Charleston.
The Lions played flawlessly, controlling possession with crisp passes and shutting down Cambridge’s attempts to mount an attack.
Mills Langehans scored five goals for the Lions — including four in the first half — and needed just 32 minutes to record a hat trick. Lydia Mahan scored two goals and Grace Glover added one.
Eagles’ streak ends at 5
Beaufort Academy’s boys were denied in their bid for a sixth consecutive SCISA 1A soccer championship Friday, falling 4-2 to The King’s Academy at Porter-Gaud in Charleston.
TKA grabbed an early 2-0 lead before BA’s Joe Stowe cut the deficit in half. The Eagles had a chance to tie it midway through the second half, but Ben Trask was denied on a penalty to preserve the Lions’ 2-1 lead.
After the Lions extended the lead to 3-1, Thomas Holladay scored to pull BA within one, but TKA put it away with another goal with seven minutes left.
