LAKELAND — It’s been a tough year for Lakeland Christian boys soccer coach Grandy Streets as he’s had to adjust his lineup all season because of injuries. Even now, he rotated two goalkeepers to make up for the loss of his starter.
But the Vikings never lost focus. They persevered and their 1-0 victory over Lake Placid on Friday night in the championship game of the Class 3A, District 6 boys soccer tournament gave them back-to-back district titles.
“I don’t even know what to say,” Streets said. “I though we played fantastic defense. Our team is a defensive kind of a team. I thought that team was fantastic.”
The game was a physical, back-and-forth game, but both team’s defenses kept denying their opponent to keep the game scoreless.
The Vikings scored the only goal midway through the second half on a free kick by Justin Long. It was a case of it was better to be lucky than good.
“It was a bad shot,” Long said. “I was surprised. I did not expect it to go in. As soon as I shot it, I said, oh, that was terrible.”
