Fluvanna County’s boys soccer team got the better of play against Waynesboro five days ago at home, but let a potential win slip away and posted a tie to open the season.
Even after falling into a 1-0 hole in the first half Monday night, apparently the Flucos were determined not to merely escape with a tie again in the rematch.
Fluvanna picked up two second half goals to complete a comeback and lock up the squad’s first victory of the season with a 2-1 win over the Little Giants on the road.
Emory Davis scored the equalizer for the Flucos in the second half after Adriean Gomez put the Little Giants up 1-0. Davis broke through off a Griffin Klauder assist in the 48th minute. Then just 12 minutes later, Mauricio Castillo headed the ball to Bradley Holtz for the go-ahead goal in the 60th minute and from there Fluvanna held on, escaping Waynesboro with the win on a chilly night.
The Flucos now get a short break before heading to Louisa March 29.
