Boys soccer: Blessed Trinity, 6-AA looks dominant again

Region 6-AA is paired with 5-AA in the first round of the state playoffs next week, and those four games could be the biggest mismatches in any classification.
Region 6, which sent three teams to the state semifinals last year and had both of the teams in the finals , where Westminster beat Greater Atlanta Christian.
This time around, Blessed Trinity hopes to be in the mix. The Titans, who finished the regular season at 15-1-2 after a scoreless tie against Class AAAAA Pope Tuesday night, are ranked No. 1 by Eurosport despite having lost to GAC. Blessed Trinity bowed out in a disappointing first-round loss to North Oconee last year.
“I think the kids didn’t like the way they went out last year,” said Blessed Trinity coach Don Gillig. “North Oconee graduated eight seniors last year and made it to the state semifinal. I had seen them play and I knew they were a really good team.”
While the 2011 Titans were a team dominated by juniors and sophomores, they’re a more experienced group in 2012, led by Rhodes College signee Will Porter, a defender, and goalie John McLeighton, who is committed to play a the University of Dallas, and leading scorers John Collar and Stefan Rizzo.
The Titans have posted 11 shutouts and only one team, GAC, has scored two goals against them.
