Boys Soccer Falls to Hebron Christian in GHSA Final Four Match

DACULA, Ga. – Christian Moore scored his sixth goal of the state playoffs, but it was not enough, as the First Presbyterian Day School boys soccer team dropped its GHSA Final Four match to the Hebron Christian Lions 5-1 on Wednesday night, May 15.

Moore scored the first goal of the game for the Vikings (13-7-1) on a pass from Cole Morton, giving FPD a 1-0 lead with 26 minutes to play in the first period.

Hebron Christian would take over from there, scoring five unanswered goals to seal the victory.

Bailey Pinto scored three goals for Hebron Christian, two coming within two minutes of each other in the first half.

FPD trailed 2-1 heading into intermission, but the steady attack from Hebron Christian returned for the second period.

In the second half, Hebron’s Johnny Harden, Brandon Elmer and Pinto all netted goals for the Lions to seal the victory.

The loss brings an end to the 2013 season for the FPD boys soccer team. The Vikings advanced to the GHSA Final Four for the first time in school history, hosted a first-round state playoff game and surpassed the 10-win mark this past season.

The FPD Athletic Department sincerely thanks the class of 2013 for their efforts and dedication over the years.

The First Presbyterian Day School Department of Athletics, home to multiple region and state championships in both the GISA and GHSA, strives to build the student athlete both in the playing arena and the classroom while continuing to educate and equip students to change the world for God’s glory. Now a member of the GHSA, the Vikings have continued to provide FPD athletes, coaches, fans and spectators a positive, Christian environment on a daily basis.
