BSOC: Lights go out on HHCA’s comeback bid

In its final game before an extended hiatus, the Hilton Head Christian Academy boys soccer team battled Effingham County on the road Friday night until the lights literally went out in a 2-1 defeat.

The Rebels, assuming it might be the last game of their season, honored three graduating seniors at the start of the match. Playing inspired soccer, Effingham jumped out to a two-goal lead in the first 10 minutes, but the Eagles were able to eventually get their legs going and brought an offensive barrage, capped off by a Cameron Strickland goal.

HHCA kept strong offensive pressure on the Rebels through the end of the first half and into the second, but the lights went out at the 35:36 mark of the half. Both coaches agreed to halt the game, and the Rebels sent their seniors off with a memorable victory. 

Hilton Head Christian (1-2) hopes to resume its season on April 3.
