RIVALS COLLIDE

Athens-East meet in 2nd round with a Final 4 spot on the line

(Continued)

2011 rematch

The teams met in this exact situation two years ago after both won first-round playoff matches. Athens and East split games during the regular season that year and met in the second round at Athens for a chance at the Final Four.

East Limestone won that game 5-4 to advance to the program’s first state tournament.

The game likely won’t produce nine goals, but should be one of the area’s best-ever soccer games considering the high stakes and quality of players on the field.

Kickoff from Athens is at 4 p.m. Saturday.
