Reinhardt Blanks Skyhawks in AAC Play
WALESKA, Ga. – A complete team effort on both sides of the ball and a pair of second-half goals from Aaron Whitten proved to be the difference in Reinhardt’s 2-0 victory over the Skyhawks of Point (Ga.) under the lights on Wednesday in Waleska.
The triumph snapped the Eagles’ (2-4) four-game slide as they claimed their initial victory within the Appalachian Athletic Conference (1-1).
“I appreciate the unified effort from the players tonight,” head coach Joey Johnson said. “It was a great atmosphere at the game tonight from the fans, and a special shout out to Reinhardt alumni, Adam Reakes and his InterAtlanta FC squad, who travelled to visit us for the evening… Top crew!”
Point had a couple early chances to take the lead in the first half, but good defensive communication and in-net work by Niko Tzevelekos (four saves in 90 minutes) helped keep the Skyhawks at bay until the scoreboard began to turn thanks a header from Whitten off a nice feed from Philip Frowis.
What could have been the highlight of the night came about 26 minutes later when Yosr Frej slipped a pass by the defense and found a streaking Whitten, who would then nail a shot into the bottom-right of the net.
The Eagles dominated shot attempts, specifically in the second half (12-4), and were able to keep the pressure on Point the entire night.
The homestand continues on Saturday evening with another doubleheader – this time the men will play first – at 5 p.m. against Milligan (Tenn.).
