The PHS Boys JV Soccer team squared off against the Enterprise Wildcat JV team at Stanley Jensen Stadium Thursday night. The teams battled through most of the first half with little to show for it. Tim Jackson gave the Lions the lead just before halftime when he collected a loose ball in front of the Wildcat goal and rifled a shot past the goalkeeper. The Lions took the one goal advantage into the halftime break.
In the second half, the Wildcats came out on fire. They scored two quick, successive goals within the first 15 minutes of the second half. The Wildcats hung on to their lead and the Wildcat goalie turned aside several opportunities for the Lions to tie the score. With time running low, the Lions began to throw numbers toward the Wildcat goal. Chris Loomis started making several penetrating runs from his defensive position. On a late run, Loomis collected a deflected ball and fired a shot past the Wildcat goalie into the net. The score would stand as the Lions and Wildcats settled for a draw.
This was the second dramatic tie in three games. Trent Thompson scored a dramatic goal against Hoover with 00:23 remaining in the game to tie the Bucs just prior to Spring Break. Head Coach Taylor Jones will be looking for some improvement as the Lions host Pelham Monday night. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
