Northgate soccer teams dominated Mt. Zion-Jonesboro Wednesday on Senior Night to close the Region 4-AAAAA schedule with a pair of shutouts.

The Lady Vikings made quick for of a late-arriving Lady Bulldogs team, scoring seven goals in the first 20 minutes en route to a 10-0 victory in a game called after 46 minutes of play.

Northgate clinched second place in the region and earned home field for the first round of the Class AAAAA state playoffs.

The boys squad, which is coming off a 1-0 upset over Starr's Mill on Monday, kept its playoff hopes alive with a 4-0 win over the Bulldogs.

Kevin Cheng had a hat trick for Northgate and Robert McNeal added the other goal for the Vikings.

The Northgate girls came into the week ranked third in the Class AAAAA poll, but knocked off second- ranked Starr's Mill Monday night.

With Wednesday's win over Mt. Zion, Northgate (15-1, 9-1) extends its winning streak to six games.

The victory over the Lady Bulldogs was Northgate's seventh shutout this season.

Northgate's boys can clinch its second straight trip to the state playoffs with a win at Forest Park next week.

'Going to the playoffs again would be really big,' head coach Bryan Hicks said. 'We have been playing well lately.'

Both Northgate squads play a non-region game at home next Monday against Columbus.

HERITAGE SCHOOL BOYS 8, DOMINION CHRISTIAN 1: At home, Carlisle Taylor, David Martin and David Barber each scored twice as the Hawks (10-2) got ready for today's showdown for second place in GISA Region 1-AAA at home against Trinity Christian.
