Vikings host Indians tonight
This year’s Coweta Cup in high school lacrosse begins tonight following a weather-delayed opener.

The opening faceoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
The Indians, who rallied to defeat St. Pius X 7-6 last Wednesday are coming off a 12-10 loss Monday at Starr’s Mill.
East Coweta’s boys enter with a 7-6 record heading into tonight’s game. Three of the team’s five losses have come by three or fewer goals.
The Vikings headed into this week on a four-game losing streak that dropped the team’s record to 5-8.
Cup play continues Friday with East Coweta traveling to Newnan. Newnan will host Northgate to close the regular season on April 29.
