by Doug Gorman

East Coweta's girls soccer team took a little bit of time to get started, but once the Lady Indians got their game cranked up it was total domination en route to a 10-0 victory over visiting Westlake in a Region 3-AAAAAA showdown.

East Coweta scored five goals in each half and and ended the contest by the 10-goal mercy rule with just over seven minutes left to improve its record to 6-2 overall and 4-0 in region action.

Westlake dropped to 4-2 overall and 2-2.

'It was just a matter of us being patient,' East Coweta head coach Chris Luppens said. It was nice that we were able to finish the job.'

The victory was the Lady Indians' fourth straight as well as the team's third shutout over the same stretch.

East Coweta maintained pressure throughout the game, but didn't score its first goal of the contest until 20 minutes into the contest when Nikki Brandley took pass from Serenity Waters for a 1-0 lead.

Westlake goalkeeper Latrice Hutson made several incredible saves for the Lady Lions, but left the game with about 10 minutes remaining in the half when she banged heads with one of her teammates. She never returned.

That opened the f loodgates for the Lady Indians who scored four times in the final 7:55 of the first half.

Waters was the offensive sparkplug for the Lady Indians, scoring five times. Anna Lauzon added two goals and Ashton Rohrscheneider and Morgan Haase each had one.

Before the injury, Westlake's starting keeper made several point-blank saves while denying East Coweta on a couple of corner kick chances.

Brandley, however, gave East Coweta a 2-0 lead with 7:55 left and Haase added her score a minute later.

Waters finished up the first half by scoring with two goals in the final 5:33.

The Lady Indians opened the second half with the first of Lauzon's scores for a 6-0 lead.

Waters and Rohrschenedier scored five minutes apart for an 8-0 lead.

The Lady Indians rounded out the scoring with Waters last goal and the final tally by Lauzon to end the contest by the mercy rule.

It was the fourth time this season East Coweta has ended the contest with a 10-0, mercy rule decision.

The Lady Indians also beat LaGrange, Langston Hughes and Tri-Cities in matches that ended early.
