Soccer Trojans win Tuesday evening

Charles Henderson’s soccer team won 2-1 over Valley Tuesday night.

Lloyd Shillabeer and Michael Salmon each had one goal in the victory.

“This win has put us on top of area grid for now,” CHHS head coach Olaf Lieb said. “But this is by far no time to start and relax. We will continue to work with our current strategy, but we will also work on something that will give us the strength and confidence we need to take this to the next level.”

Up next for the Trojans is a game against Eufaula in Troy April 6.
