Announcements and Important Events
Our Varsity Boys Soccer team made school history last night, by winning their 1st ever Boys District Soccer Championship. FZE defeated Parkway Central 2-1 (4-3 in PK's) to take home the 1st place plaque.
Parkway Central scored 1st in the 25th minute to take a 1-0 lead. FZE later tied it at 1 on a goal by Carter Woodward, midway through the 2nd half. The Lions had several other good chances to take the lead during regulation, but could not convert, sending the game into overtime tied at 1. FZE then controlled play through much of the 1st OT, but again, could not convert. During the 2nd OT, it was Parkway Central who had the best of play, but Lion keeper Carlos Pulido came up with a big save, while Lion defenders Jacob Groark and Kyle Kohls were huge in the back. The game then went into PK's tied at 1.
In PK's, after the team traded goals to make it 3-3, Pulido made another big save, which allowed the next Lion goal to give FZE a 4-3 lead. The next Central player then missed the net on his shot, giving the Lions the historic win.
FZE will now head to Sectional play, where they will play Rockwood Summit, @ Summit, on Saturday, November 7. Game time is 3 pm.
