The 2010 soccer season is winding down and Banks County has only a handful of matches left on the schedule.
After facing Stephens County on Tuesday night, the Leopards are back on the field this week hosting Rabun County.
Thursday’s match against Rabun begins at 5 p.m. as the boys start. The Lady Leopards follow, playing at 7 p.m.
According to coach Megan Williams, the Lady Leopards have to focus on staying motivated for a full 80 minutes.
“They need to be able to play 80 good minutes, not 60. We tend to lose focus and motivation late in the game, and that hurt us in our region match vs. Lakeview,” said Williams.

The Banks County boys’ soccer team finally had everything fall into place according to head coach Mike Boomer.
“We have spent the entire season trying to find the best positions for each player, and it finally came together against Buford. We lost one to nil against number 6 in the state. I feel we should be able to match up against anyone for the rest of the season,” Boomer said.
“We are 2-2 in the region and positioned for a play-in game for state if we win two of the last three,” said Boomer.
Still ahead for the Leopards is Rabun County this Thursday at home.
Next week on April 14, Banks heads to East Jackson where the girls start the non-region match at 4:30 p.m. with the boys following at 6:30 p.m.
The next region match for the Leopards will be at home on April 15 as the boys face Riverside at 4:30 p.m. and the Girls face East Jackson at 6:30 p.m.
Banks County’s soccer senior night will be April 20 as the Leopards host Madison. The final region match of the season is the following night on April 21 as Banks takes on Towns County.
