Central Lunenburg Falls 8-0 To PECHS

FARMVILLE — The Prince Edward County High School varsity boys soccer team ended their regular season as the top team in the James River District on Wednesday, May 20.

The Eagles secured the #1 spot after defeating the Central Lunenburg Chargers 8-0. With the victory, the Eagles improved to 16-0 overall.

PECHS struck fast against the Chargers and was led by Niko Reinson. Reinson scored five goals during the game and also had an assist. Malte Carolus followed with two goals, while Brady Atkins scored one. Colton Sheehan aided the Eagles with three assists. Chaney Sheehan, Jordan Conwell, Brennan Deitrich, and Robin Schneider had an assist each.

“Building off of last year’s success, and remembering how the season ended so abruptly against Maggie Walker, kept my players hungry and determined to be a better team this year. An undefeated season was the reward for all of the hard work that the players put in during preseason,” PECHS varsity boys soccer coach Devin Pierce reflected on the current season.

“The team has adopted the motto “PREACH” for this season, an acronym for how each player should carry themselves on and off the soccer field, (Proactive, Resolute, Encouraging, Accountable, Confident, Humble) and each player has done just that. I couldn’t be any more proud of this group of young men.”

The PECHS varsity boys soccer team advanced to the Quad Rivers Conference 34 Tournament. With their ranking, they received a BYE in the first round of the tournament. They will play their first game in the tournament on Wednesday, May 27, at PECHS. They will host the Amelia County High School Raiders at 5 p.m.
