Wallace State soccer closes regular season

HANCEVILLE – Wallace State's soccer team concluded the regular season earlier this week with a familiar theme, posting yet another shutout in a 6-0 victory against Faulkner State's JV.

It marked the fourth consecutive shutout for the Lions and ninth overall, moving Wallace State to 10-1-1 on the season.

"Our team has developed and matured so much defensively the last two months. We have a great team identity and build on that foundation," said Wallace State soccer coach Barry Spitzer, whose team has surrendered only three goals all season. "We are blessed to have a lot of options in the midfield and offensively. These guys believe in each other, and that's helped us have a great season."

Wallace State begins the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) postseason Tuesday at Wake Technical Community College in Cary, N.C.

Against Faulkner State, Peter Martinez and Fatai Alabi each scored a pair of goals, while Matheus Freire and Kofi Forkuoh had one apiece. Forkuoh, Peter Martinez, Robbie Posada and Niall McKelvey each had an assist.

Goalkeeper Drew Hannan finished with four saves for the Lions.
