East Coweta and Newnan girls soccer teams open Area 3-AAAAAA play with road victories on Tuesday.

The Lady Indians made quick work of Langston Hughes on a wet afternoon of soccer as Anna Lauzon and Nikki Brandley each scored three times in a 10-0 victory that ended by mercy rule with 11 minutes still left in regulation.

Newnan’s girls, meanwhile, gutted out a 2-1 victory at home on goals from Hannah Thomas and Erin Bright to put both of the county’s lineups out to 1-0 starts in the 3-AAAAAA standings.

East Coweta senior Serenity Waters also scored twice against Langston Hughes and added a team-high three assists. Junior midfielder Lynnsey Danford also set up three goals.

Ashton Rohrschnieder finished with a goal and an assist for the Lady Indians (2-0, 1-0). Haley Roberts also scored for East Coweta and Morgan Haase finished with an assist.

Both lineups return to non-region play on Friday. Newnan travels to Peachtree Ridge while East Coweta hosts Starr’s Mill.

In boys soccer action on Tuesday:

East Coweta 8, Langston Hughes 0: Christian Wendt scored twice among seven Indians that tallied goals in a successful 3-AAAAAA opener while also improving to 2-0 overall.
