Indians get back to winning ways, top Archer 13-2

East Coweta quickly put its first loss on the lacrosse field this season in the rear-view mirror against Archer.

The Indians stormed out to a five-goal halftime lead behind a hat trick from senior Bryce Durden and never looked back in a 13-2 victory in non-region action on Thursday at Garland Shoemake Stadium.

Coming off Monday’s disappointing loss to Area 1-AAAAAA foe Harrison, East Coweta picked up five goals from both Durden on attack and fellow senior Lee Steed while getting a start in the midfield against the Tigers while improving its record to 4-1 overall.

Indians senior goalie Brian DeBole continued his strong play in net, making 16 saves in the victory.

Ahead 6-1 at the break, East Coweta put the game away by doubling its offense in the third quarter with six goals, three of which came from Steed.

Carter Byrum finished with a goal and five assists in the victory while Ty Hager set up four East Coweta tallies including three in the first half.

Sterling Tyson and Frasier Hutchinson also had a goal and an assist for the Indians, who return to Area 1-AAAAAA play on Thursday at home against first-year program Pebblebrook.

In JV boys action on Thursday, the Indians also defeated Archer 10-6 behind four goals from Dalton Moye.

Madison Duffessy and Cole Watson each had two goals in the victory while Nick Daliet and Andrew Ogle had one apiece.

Marc St. Germain made 10 saves in the victory.

In late girls lacrosse action on Wednesday:

NEWNAN 13, TRI-CITIES 4: The Lady Cougars dominated their Area 1-AAAAAA opponent in a trip to East Point, scoring six unanswered goals starting with the last of Sable Hawkins’ three goals in the final minute prior to halftime.

Dakota Overton put together back-to-back tallies to open the second half for Newnan, which led 7-3 at the break. She also had an assist on Hawkins’ second goal to push an early 3-0 advantage.

Savannah Ohliger added three goals and two assists in the win while Rachel McMahon and Courtney Darrow each added two in the victory.

Emma Dougherty had six saves for Newnan. Hawkins led the team with four ground balls while getting the start.

Dougherty entered in relief of Monday’s 18-3 loss to Pope when teammate Hope Overton left the game with an injury at halftime.

Newnan’s goals came from Hawkins, Anne Jarrett and Ohliger in the loss while Megan Diebboll led the team with five ground balls.
