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.
