Storms interrupt Greer girls region soccer title celebration

Boys game resumes at 5:30 p.m. Friday, girls game to follow

Published on Thursday, April 26, 2012

The Greer High School girls soccer team won its first Region III-3A championship without taking the field tonight at Dooley Field.

Games with Union County were stopped during the first game between the boys teams because of lightning and thunderstorms. The games were halted at 8:05 p.m. with weather conditions unfavorable to wait any longer. South Carolina High School League rules require games to be halted for 30 minutes from the last lightning in the area.

The boys game, tied at 1-1 with 25 minutes remaining, will conclude Friday at 5:30 p.m. at Dooley Field. The girls game will follow.

All spectators with exit tickets will be admitted free. A record crowd was already recorded tonight, according to Greer Athletic Director Travis Perry. Additional attendance is expected for both region champion teams Friday.

Senior Night will be held between this evening’s games.

The Greer boys, coached by Jorge Santos, set a standard by winning the school’s first region championship last week. The girls, coached by Rob DePaol, clinched the region championship Monday night when Blue Ridge lost a region match to Chapman. 

Greer's boys and girls teams will find out their first round playoff opponents next week. As region champions they will host a first-round playoff game.
