Falcons soccer team wins at home

"Senior George Supang was the setup man Monday night when he delivered two assisting passes to R.J. Erickson and Josh Mitchell as they scored the two goals needed to beat a visiting Meridian team.Both scores came in the first half of the game and went unanswered. The game's second half was much quieter with no scoring whatsoever. Now 11-2 for the season, the team has one critical regular-season matchup ahead of it. On Saturday, the Falcons will travel to play Lynden Christian, the undefeated North Cascades Conference standings leader.Falcon coach Mark Helpenstell said his team will have all it can handle against the Lyncs. With senior striker Kevin Brink out with a broken foot and with senior goalkeeper Mike Johnson hobbled by his own foot injury, Helpenstell said his team must make some adjustments for Saturday's contest.With Kevin gone, we're having to retrain a bit, Helpenstell said.If the Falcons win two of their final three games, they will end the season with their best record ever. Two wins will also guarantee them a slot in the district playoffs, which start in the second week in May.The team plays its final home game next Thursday when Nooksack Valley comes to town. That game starts at 6 p.m. on Waterman Field. "
