SPRING HOPE — Elm City captured the Tricounties Athletic Conference boys soccer championship Wednesday with a 3-2 road win over Southern Nash.

The Vikings finished the season at a perfect 13-0 as Micah Foula tallied two goals and an assist in the win. Will Doll also scored and Collins Pearson notched an assist.

Foula opened the scoring four minutes into the game with a high moon ball from 20 yards out on the right side that went just over the Southern Nash keeper’s head. The Vikings extended their lead just three minutes later when Doll took a pass from Foula in the middle and made it 2-0 with a hard shot.

The Cobras tied the game with goals two minutes apart with 12 minutes left in the opening half.

In the game’s 49th minute, the Vikings took the lead for good on a fortuitous bounce. Pearson’s cross from the left hit the keeper’s foot, bounced up in the air and hit a driving Foula in the face before landing in the back of the net. Foula collected his glasses and commenced the celebration with his teammates for what ended up being the game-winning goal.

“It was a long road back from not playing middle school sports last year,” said Elm City coach Brent Pearson. “I am very proud of these guys. We are thankful we had the opportunity to play this fall; these  guys really made the most of their season, leaving it all on the field every game. It was a well-deserved TAC championship.”

Elm City reached the championship game with a 4-2 home win over Red Oak on Tuesday. Southern Nash defeated South Edgecombe 2-1 in a Monday match to punch its card for the title tilt.
