The Fairborn boys varsity soccer team won 3-1 Tuesday night against Piqua at Fairborn stadium. It was also Fairborn's senior night.
The Hawks went down 1-0 early in the second half on a penalty kick. That would be the last goal senior Zach Gillman would allow in the goal with 8 saves and a very strong game in slippery conditions.
Donovan Dierker tied the game later in the second half on a hard shot from the right flank. A few minutes later, Donovan Dierker found Carsten Kurtz on a through ball where Carsten scored the game winner. A few minutes later, on a practically identical play, Donovan Dierker again found Carsten Kurtz who scored again to allow Fairborn to go up 3-1 - which was the final score.
It was a very strong performance by the entire team, especially the senior players. The ten seniors include: Josh Best, Cayden Campbell, Keegan Dierker, Zach Gillman, Donnie Lynn, Carsten Kurtz, Tyler Manning, Rahjay Morgan, Elijah Picarello, and Nate Walburn.
The varsity team next plays Xenia at Doug Adams stadium in Xenia next Tuesday at 7 in the opening round of the state tournament.
