Warrior booters win

Indian Land rallied from a 1-0 deficit to take a comeback win over rival Buford on Wednesday night.

BHS broke on top for a 1-0 lead, but Indian Land responded with four unanswered goals in the first half.

Anthony Sweatt, who had a stellar night, had two first-half goals. Luke Lambert and Emmanuel Mata also tallied in the first half for IL.

In the second half, Buford scored again, but IL answered with an Anthony Sweatt goal.

“It was a typical rivalry match,” IL coach Adam Cole said. “I commend our fans for their support and respect for the team and the sport.

“I am also proud of the players for going out there and getting the job done through hard work, skill and determination,” Cole said. “We we were still pretty bitter from our loss to Andrew Jackson. We knew we beat ourselves.”

Sweatt had a solid match, tallying a hat trick (three goals).

“Not only did Anthony score goals as a forward, but he helped out in the midfield and even ran back to defense. He was everywhere." Our defense also had another standout performance, shutting down a quick and talented Buford striker.

“Patrick Sweatt (goalie) also make several key saves in the match which kept us on top,” Cole said.

The Warriors next match is Tuesday at home against Westminster Catawba in a 6:30 p.m. start.
