Before the season began, way back in the fall, Katie Scali assembled the seniors on her Flowery Branch girls soccer team for dinner and a night of reflection at her house. They discussed their intended direction for the season after two straight years of missing the playoffs, an exercise for the leaders of a team Scali said had recently performed “below expectations for what our program has been built around.”Those eight Lady Falcons seniors had quite the vision. Flowery Branch has matched its deepest postseason run and came make history in its Class 5A quarterfinal contest against Starr’s Mill at 5:30 p.m. today in Flowery Branch.
