High School Soccer

Openers also fall victim of school cancellations

East Coweta and Northgate soccer teams will have to wait a little longer before opening the 2014 season.

Northgate’s doubleheader at Carrollton was posted on Tuesday because of the impending wintry weather which is expected to bring both ice and snow into the area over the next two days.

East Coweta was also expected to get its 2014 season under way with a doubleheader at home against Druid Hills, but was also cancelled.

The contests were officially called off because Carrollton City and DeKalb County cancelled school Tuesday. The Georgia High School Association prevents contests from taking place if school is not held.

Northgate will now attempt to get its season started on Friday when it travels to Union Grove in Henry County.

East Coweta is now also scheduled to play its first games of the year when it entertains LaGrange Friday night.

A year ago, the Lady Vikings won the school’s first GHSA soccer title defeating Area 4-AAAAA rival Whitewater in the state finals. Northgate’s boys finished 8-8 in 2013.

East Coweta lineups are also coming off trips to the GHSA Class AAAAAA state tournament. The Indians posted a 19-1 record while reaching the semifinals before falling 3-2 in a shootout loss at Berkmar. The Lady Indians finished 13-6 in 2013.
