The Griffin boys soccer team dropped to 0-5 on the season with a loss Thursday to the Alcovy Tigers at Griffin High.
Griffin was down 2-0 at the half, but rallied in the second half to tie the game. Nathan Flitcroft scored a goal at the 10 minute mark to make the score 2-1 and five minutes later, Torious Starr evened the game at two with a goal.
Alcovy scored the game-winning goal on a penalty kick with 5:25 left to play in regulation. The Tigers had a chance to score again on a penalty kick minutes later, but Bears keeper Edward Glanton made a nice save to keep the score at 3-2.
“I’m as happy as you can be with a loss,” said Bears head coach Joel Pasch. “The guys kept fighting until the very end and that’s all you can ask for as a coach.”
Griffin’s next game is at home against Mt. Zion-Jonesboro March 10.
