EC undefeated heading into Kennesaw showdown

East Coweta’s boys lacrosse team continues to showcase its talent heading into Friday’s Region 1-AAAAAA showdown of unbeatens at Kennesaw Mountain.

The Indians scored at will against North Forsyth while equally stymying the Raiders defensively in a 26-5 blowout on Saturday at Garland Shoemake Stadium.

Coming off last week’s 19-goal effort against Campbell, East Coweta (2-0) unleashed a barrage of shots on North Forsyth with Lee Steed and Bryce Durden each finishing with seven goals apiece in the victory.

Senior Conner McMeen added five goals while the Indians’ defense kept North Forsyth contained. East Coweta senior goalie Brian DeBole made five stops in a quiet outing.

East Coweta’s JV boys defeated North Forsyth 9-3 behind four goals from Cole Watson and a pair from Chandler Perkins.

Marc St. Germain made eight saves in goal for the Indians.

LADY COUGARS COMEBACK FALLS SHORT AT WOODWARD: The Lady Cougars ran out of time on Monday at Woodward Academy in a 10-8 loss where Newnan scored four of the final six goals a loss, including a pair in the closing minute.

Hope Overton made 16 saves in goal for the Lady Cougars, who were led offensively by Savannah Ohliger’s five goals, two of which came in the final seconds of respective halves.

Ohliger’s tally with one second left until halftime pulled Newnan to within a 6-4 deficit at the break before Woodward opened a four-goal advantage in the first four minutes of the second half.

From there, teams went nearly 13 minutes without scoring until Dakota Overton set up Ohliger with a pass to pull within 8-5. Teammate Sable Hawkins added her second goal of the game just over a minute later for Newnan to close within two goals before a final two-goal surge by the Lady War Eagles.

Jessica Monroe added a goal in the loss for Newnan while Woodward was led by three goals from Mary Pomas and two apiece from Jenny Warren and Jade Robertson.

The Lady Cougars host McIntosh on Thursday.

In action on Tuesday, three teams were on the road with East Coweta’s girls at Darlington, Newnan’s boys at Archer and Northgate’s boys at McIntosh.

Scores were unavailable at deadline.
