JV, middle school soccer teams split

MOULTRIE — After two rainouts, the Colquitt County middle school soccer teams were finally able to play matches on Thursday and they came up with a split against visiting Hahira at Packer Park.

The middle school boys Blue team jumped to a 4-1 halftime lead and easily won 7-1.

Bryan Gallardo led the middle school Packers with four goals.

Peniel Rodriguez, Jose Moreno and Emanuel Rodriguez each had a goal.

Coach Ben Marion was pleased with the team’s opening-match effort.

“I really enjoy working with these guys,” Marion said. “We’ve got some talent on this team.

“We got to work on positioning and movement, but it was a good start.”

Marion has divided his large group of players into Blue and Red teams.

The middle school Lady Packers fell to Hahira 2-0.

“We looked good in the midfield and at forward until it was time to shoot,” coach Ashley Hill said of his young team.

Hill said he was pleased that he was able to get all 22 of his players on the field.

The Packers and Lady Packers will go on the road twice next week: at Thomas County Central on Monday an at Lowndes on Thursday.

JV soccer teams win, lose at Lee

The Colquitt County junior varsity boys soccer team raised its record to 2-0 with a 2-1 victory at Lee County on Thursday.

The JV Lady Packers fell 4-0.

Colquitt scored early in the second half as well with Jason Nunez scoring on an unassisted corner kick with 33 minutes remaining.

Both keepers — Hector Alvarado and Davis Howell — played well, coach Justin Nelms said.

Lee County’s score came on a corner kick with 15 minutes remaining.

The JV teams will play at home against Tift County on Monday.
