EC, Northgate lineups drop non-region contests

It’s been a busy week already for East Coweta soccer teams. After falling to Parkview on Monday night, both the boys and the girls teams lost Tuesday to non-region opponents.

East Coweta’s girls fell 2-1 to Allatoona, while the boys dropped a 3-2 contest to Lulla on penalty kicks.

It’s the seventh time this season the boys (8-9) have lost a game by one goal.

In girls action, East Coweta got its only goal of the night from Serenity Waters.

The Lady Indians (11-5) have already secured the Region 3-AAAAAA title with a 5-0 league record, but still have one more non-region tonight against (10-3) Alexander at home tonight.

East Coweta’s boys had won four games in a row, before falling to Parkview and Luella in consecutive nights.

The Lady Indians went into Monday night’s game against third-ranked Parkview and were shut out for just the second time this season. East Coweta and Decatur played to a 0-0 tie last week.

At Northgate, the defending Class AAAAA state champion Lady Vikings (15-3, 9-1) have lost two straight games, falling to Villa Rica last week and Columbus Monday, both by 3-2 margins. It’s the most goals the Lady Vikings have given up all year after eight shutouts.

Northgate’s boys (9-6, 6-4) hurt their chances to make the playoffs Tuesday night after falling 3-2 at Forest Park in a Region 4-AAAAA game.

McIntosh defeated Starr’s Mill’s boys 3-1 to clinch first place in the region with both Ola and Forest Park owning 7-3 records.

The Newnan girls (9-7, 3-2) go into the state playoffs two straight non-region shutouts over Carrollton, 1-0, and Fayette County, 3-0.

Newnan suffered two region losses in the East Coweta and Douglas County to finish third and head on the road for the opening of the Class AAAAA playoffs.

The Newnan boys finished the year with a 1-15 record.
