Season Recap: MS Soccer


The 2022 MS soccer season came to a close in perfect fashion, as the boys and girls both secured road wins over Towns County on March 30 to end on a high note. For both teams, they entered with an inexperienced roster that improved greatly from the first to the last match.

Lady Indians

The girls improved quickly from match to match. After a rocky start in a lopsided loss to Lakeview, the Lady Indians earned a draw over Rabun County before notching their first win over White County. A win over Murphy followed in a dominant showing. What followed was an 0-2-2 mark in the next 4 matches, but the girls righted the ship with a 3-3 draw against Murphy and the season-ending blowout win at Towns.

LB Kafsky recorded 3 hat tricks throughout the season, and finished with 14 goals to lead the girls. Bailey Crumley had 5 goals, Amari Ernst 3, Josie Plaisted 2, and Ashlyn Cleveland one. Ten different players recorded assists, led by Kafsky's 6. Charlotte Stafford had 3, and Plaisted, Ernst, and Sarah Lundy each had 2 apiece. Several others had one.

Overall, the Lady Indians went 3-3-3 overall under coach Laura Higbie, and scored 25 goals with 29 against. Of the eighth graders who will be moving up to the high school level next year, the Lady Indians will lose GK Emily Cai, Cleveland, Crumley, Stafford, Lundy, Plaisted, Sarah Morris, Meredith Orr, and Molly Rickman.


The Indians were outscored 23-3 over the first 3 matches. After that, the team began to get accustomed to the level of competition and to each other. A 7-5 loss to Lakeview showed huge promise for what the boys were capable of, as sixth grader Isaac Farris began to stand out as a real offensive threat.

TFS closed the season with back-to-back wins over Towns County, taking the first 4-2 and the finale 2-0. That brought the boys to a 2-4 final record, and saw them outscore opponents 11-9 in the final 3 matches, a drastic improvement from the first 3 matches. 

Farris led all scorers with 10 goals, while Elijah Hornsby and Kale Borchers had 2 each. Walker Wright added a goal. Jackson Savage recorded a team-high 3 assists, and was followed by a pair apiece by Farris and Borchers. Harry Goldfine also recorded an assist.

The Indians will see Goldfine, Joshua Turney, and Wright all move up to the high school level, leaving still a young team intact for next season.
