Colquitt splits non-region soccer matches at Lowndes

MOULTRIE — Colquitt County varsity boys soccer coach Jimbo Jarvis has been eagerly anticipating suiting up transfer Maca Aguilera, waiting for him to become eligible.

Aguilera showed promise in junior varsity action and it didn’t take long to make an impact for the varsity Packers.

Just four minutes after he set foot on the field for the first time in a varsity game, he scored a goal after a fine pass from Carlos Martinez that gave Colquitt County a 1-0 lead over Lowndes on Tuesday at Lowndes.

The Packers went to to defeat the Vikings 3-0 in what was not a Region 1-AAAAAA match.

“But it was still a good win for us,” Jarvis said. “It gives us the confidence that we can play with them. It shows us what we are capable of.”

With the victory the Packers raise their record to 3-0 with matches at Packer Park on Friday and Saturday against Lee County and Warner Robins respectively.

The Packers have outscored their first three opponents — Thomasville, Thomas County Central and Lowndes — by a combined 8-1.

The Packers built on their 1-0 halftime lead with an unassisted goal by Francisco Gomez in the 62nd minute.

Jay Tolbert added the final goal with two minutes left when he blew past the defense and put ball behind the fine Lowndes keeper.

The Packers got three goals past him, but the Vikings goalie denied them on several other occasions.

Jarvis said the match was toe-to-toe for the first 20 minutes of each half.

But the Packers depth helped keep fresh legs in the game.

The Colquitt County girls drop to 1-2 after falling 4-0 in Tuesday’s first game.

“We played great soccer for a majority of the game, but they got a goal 25 minutes in and then got a PK right before the half,” Coach Andy Chapura said.

“Then we played well in the second half, but they snuck in two more on us. The breaks just didn’t bounce our way tonight.”

Although she allowed the Lowndes goals, Sarah Matney played will in the nets, Chapura said.

Next week Colquitt County will travel to Cairo and Houston County.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
