Girls soccer ends undefeated, too soon!
The Lady Mariners soccer team won its first two matches of the soccer season, including a conference victory, before the SCACS league wisely pulled the plug on the season, due to the Coronavirus. Ending the season was predictable, but nonetheless painful, as Lake Pointe's team was poised to compete for the state title. Friday, April 13, the date of the last match, the girls celebrated a victory with a post-game meal. May that satisfaction offer memories to the seniors, whose season ended way too early. Go Green!
LPA Senior to Play Soccer at NGU
Congratulations to senior Emma Shearer who signed to play soccer with North Greenville University starting in the fall of 2018!
State Soccer Champs!
Mariners are 2-A state champs in soccer!
The girls soccer team went undefeated through both the season and the state playoffs, earning its first ever SCACS state soccer title.
The Mariners first swept through their conference with a balance of strong defense and an agressive scoring strategy. That same combination helped Lake Pointe overpower a tough Emmanuel team from Hartsville 5-1 in the semi-finals, and to clinch the championship 5-2 over a talented Hampton Park team from Greenville.
The state title required many components, of course. From the ingredients of a strong team and hard work, to unselfish play and encouraging coaching, everything came together through the season.
The accomplishment is the latest installment in a longer story. Two years ago, in LPA’s inaugural soccer season, the girls' team fought valiantly just to earn a win. Last year, the team was highly competitive, barely missing the playoffs when the tie-breaker didn’t go the team’s way.
This season, the Mariners left no doubt or discussion, achieving an undefeated season all the way to top match. Well done. Go Green!
Soccer Game Postpone Due to Rain
The Ladies.Soccer game scheduled for April 24 has been postponed due to weather until Tuesday, April 25. The game will take place at Clover Memorial Fields from 4pm until 6pm. Additionally, this game will be Senior Night for the Lady Mariners. Come out and support the seniors!
Soccer opener success
The Lady Mariners opened spring league play with an impressive shut-out victory. On a beautiful, cool March afternoon, and in a front of a home crowd, the team found both offense and defense to be working well.
On offense, passes and plays connected, and balls found the goal from the front and the corner.
Goalkeeper Lauryn Linn blocked, deflected, and caught all attempts to score on the Mariners. The senior made sure LPA's early goals were enough to seal the victory. Later scores for Lake Pointe added insurance.
Soccer team ends season in play-offs
In its first official season in SCACS 2-A competition, the boys' soccer team faced Bob Jones Academy at the Bob Jones University stadium in Greenville.
After playing spirited defense, and holding the Bruins scoreless for much of the first period, the Mariners fell to BJA's excellent skills and teamsmanship.
While the Lake Pointe schedule is now over, the team's record is commendable, suggesting great promise for the next season.
Boys' soccer reaches play-offs
The boys' soccer team earned a play-off bid in its first official season in SCACS 2-A competition. The Mariners posted a winning season, and earned the chance to travel to Bob Jones University's stadium for the regional play-offs.
