TFS Soccer secures Senior Night Wins 

On an evening in which the Tallulah Falls School (TFS) Indians honored seniors Simeon Conjagic, Jake Hall, and Emery Sims, TFS varsity boys soccer secured an easy 10-0 win against Elbert County, reports TFS Athletics. The #1-ranked Indians made it 11 straight victories, and Austin Ball and Hall notched hat tricks.  “What a great environment on senior night,” says coach Jeremy Stille. “Big thank you to the parents, families, and students that came out to support the players, especially the seniors on a special night.”  TFS wasted little time lighting up the scoreboard, as the boys scored 4 goals in the opening 10 minutes. They added a couple more toward the end of the first half to go up 6-0. The Indians polished it off 4 goals in the second half.  “The boys really moved the ball well tonight and focused on controlling the spaces, with lots of off-the-ball movement to create openings and opportunities to take advantage of,” adds Stille. “Great win.”  Along with Ball and Hall recording 3 goals each, Clay Kafsky scored twice, and Luis Varona Pastor and Koen Eller both had a goal. Kafsky added an assist, while Jackson Pollock had 2 assists, and Landon Hall and Jake Wehrstein each had one.  The defense was outstanding, controlling the ball and forcing all shots from distance. In the win, TFS now has 88 goals scored on the season, which surpasses the school single-season record of 81 set in 2015.  The Indians are now 11-0 overall and 7-0 in region play, and have secured no worse than second in the region, which secures a home playoff game for at least the first tournament game.  The Lady Indians recognized a handful of seniors on Thursday evening at home, and celebrated with a 7-3 region win over Elbert County.  Addie Higbie scored 5 goals in the match, while Josie Chesser added one on a long free kick. Maddie Mullis knocked in a PK in the closing seconds as well.  “Couldn’t be more proud of our seniors on their night,” says coach Travis Mullis. “They all received strong minutes in the match.”  Elbert County came out strong, scoring first to force TFS to play from behind early. The Lady Indians evened it up, though Elbert again went ahead in the first half. Tallulah Falls then gained momentum in the second half and rallied to finish strong.  “This match was for the seniors,” adds Mullis, noting Miracle Bain, Stasa Beratovic, Leah Desta, Addie Higbie, Meredith Morris, Maddie Mullis, and Elsa Sanchez. “Very proud of their strong character and achievements this season.”  The #8-ranked Lady Indians improve to 8-3 overall and 5-2 within region.
