Fort Payne’s Rafael Robles scores twice to lead over Southside

FORT PAYNE – Rafael Robles had a good feeling going into the AHSAA Class 6A boys soccer second round match Tuesday.

The Fort Payne junior had seldom seen playing time this season, but he knew he could have a big game against Southside.

Robles scored two goals to complete his self-fulfilling prophecy in a 5-1 victory over the Panthers to advance to the round of eight.

“I was feeling since the morning I was going to play good,” Robles said. “I was telling my teammates I was feeling good. I felt I was going to do good in the game. I told my friend to tell the coach to put me in more.”
