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.

East Coweta kept the deficit to five after three periods. Connor McMeen scored twice and Adam Cahir added another in the quarter after the team went to halftime trailing the Hornets 9-3.

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.

Roswell advances to face No. 6-ranked Centennial in the second round.

The GHSA girls lacrosse playoffs begin today with Newnan traveling to face Lassiter, the No. 2 seed out of Area 2-AAAAAA.

The Lady Cougars closed the regular season at 9-8-0 while looking to bounce back from a hard-fought 9-8 loss to Northgate in the final game of the Coweta Cup. Newnan's girls finished as the No. 3 seed out of Area 1-AAAAAA.
