Roswell too much for East Coweta in first round

Despite battling to the finish, a six-goal halftime deficit was too much for East Coweta's boys lacrosse team to rally back from in a 15-6 loss to Roswell in the first round of the GHSA Class AAAAAA state playoffs on Monday.

On the road, the Indians fell behind 5-1 after one quarter, but managed to stay in the game with help from senior goalie Brian DeBole.

Roswell finished as the No. 2 seed out of Area 2-AAAAAA while improving its record to 14-3. The Hornets were ranked eighth out of 82 lacrosse teams in the GHSA.

Senior attack Bryce Durden scored the Indians first three goals, including a pair in the second quarter.

East Coweta closed its season at 9-7-0 after reaching the GHSA playoffs for at least the fifth consecutive season.
