Northgate teams sweep Drew

Northgate soccer lineups dominated opposing teams from Drew on Monday with a pair of shutouts at Henry Seldon Field in Area 4-AAAAA play.

The Vikings, who hadn’t played since a tie against Cairo on Feb. 22, capped off a sweep with a 3-0 victory behind two goals from Brandon Stahl and another from Kevin Cheng. The win improved the boys’ area record at 2-1 while moving into a three-way tie for second place in the area behind co-leaders McIntosh (6-0, 3-0), Whitewater (5-0, 2-0) and Union Grove (2-0, 1-0).

Whitewater and Union Grove play on Friday.

The No. 2 state-ranked and defending AAAAA champion Lady Vikings remained tied atop the 4-AAAAA girls standings by cruising past Drew’s girls 13-0.

Northgate scored seven times in the opening 10 minutes. Reese Weaver opened the game with two quick goals and an assist, the latter on Lily Barron’s tally.

Barron was equally busy with two goals and three assists en route to an 8-0 lead. Hayli Verbanic successfully converted a penalty kick in the early going.

TRINITY BOYS BLANK WEBER SCHOOL IN SEASON OPENER: Will Townsend opened the 2014 season with a hat trick for the Lions and Keith Lyons added a goal as Trinity Christian blanked Region 1-AAA foe Weber School 4-0 on Tuesday in the program’s first on-campus home match.

Trinity’s girls opened the season with a 2-0 loss to Weber.

Lineups return to region play on Friday with a trip to Dominion Christian.

HERITAGE SCHOOL BOYS OFF TO FAST START: With the Lady Hawks still waiting for its transition from the basketball court following a berth in the GISA Final Four, Heritage’s boys got a head start on the Region 1-AAA schedule with a 5-1 victory at home over Loganville Christian on Tuesday.

The Hawks were coming off last week’s 8-0 victory over Griffin Christian.

Heritage’s boys return to region play on Thursday at home against Weber (0-3, 0-1). The girls game has been postponed to a later date.

NEWNAN SPLITS WITH TRI-CITIES: Newnan lineups split an Area 3-AAAAAA doubleheader on Monday at Drake Stadium with Tri-Cities.

The Lady Cougars stayed undefeated with a 10-0 victory that ended by mercy rule in the second half. Newnan’s girls, who improved to 3-1-1 overall and 2-0 in 3-AAAAAA play, led comfortably 7-0 at halftime.

The Cougars, meanwhile, dropped to 0-5 overall and 0-2 in area play with a 7-3 loss.
