East Coweta's girls lacrosse team put together strong back-to-back efforts last week, tying Pace Academy in the final 37 seconds of a 9-9 tie before dominating M.L. King 14-3 on Thursday.

The Lady Indians trailing the entire way against Pace, but rallied from a 4-2 halftime deficit to tie the game while never letting the Lady Knights push its lead to more than a goal.

Cheyenne St. Germain ended it with another game-tying effort in the closing minute to cap off a three-goal effort.

Sarah Reeves and Ciera Centenera each scored twice and Alyx Akers and Julia Ghyzel also had goals on Wednesday.

Kallie Brook made 10 saves for the Lady Indians.

On Thursday against M.L. King, St. Germain netted four more goals to go with an assist while jumping out to a 10-1 lead at halftime.

Brook made five saves in goal before letting Daylee Wood take over in the second half. Wood added four stops in the victory.

Ghyzel added two goals and two assists while Sarah Reeves and Kadyn Earl each scored twice against M.L. King. East Coweta also received goals from Breann Negrette, Yehong Zhu, Centenerra and Madi Davis in the non-region victory.
