FULTONDALE — It's a historic boys soccer victory for Fultondale, as they defeated Altamont 2-0 Wednesday to capture their first ever regular-season area championship.
Lorenzo Beltran and Enrique Aguilar each scored goals for the Wildcats, who lost to the Knights 1-0 last week. Fultondale won the area title on a goal-differential tiebreaker.
The victory marks the first time the Wildcats have ever beaten Altamont, perennially one of the top teams in Class 1A-4A. It also give Fultondale the honors of hosting a first-round playoff match for the first time ever. Their opponent will be either Indian Springs School or Westminster School of Oak Mountain. The time of that match is yet to be determined.
