BOYS SOCCER NOTEBOOK

Rain holds off as playoffs get underway
 
Although there were more than a few postponements, the arrival of thunderstorms held off just long enough for state tournament action to get underway on Tuesday evening. Every one of the top five teams in Class AAAAAA booked their spots in the second round. Top-ranked Brookwood beat South Forsyth 3-0 and now appears to have a tough match on its hands against No. 5 Lassiter, which got the best of Peachtree Ridge 4-2. No. 2 Mill Creek blanked Woodstock 3-0, No. 3 Campbell cruised past Alcovy 5-0 and No. 4 Walton defeated Norcross 3-1.

            

Chamblee endured an eventful, up-and-down conclusion to its 2014 campaign. The Bulldogs edged Grady for the Region 6-AAAA championship last week with a 1-0 victory in which

Liam Ferguson notched the game's only goal. Freshman goalie Brian Roblero preserved the shutout win with a diving stop of a Grady free kick during second-half action. Despite being the region's top seed, however, Chamblee saw its season come an abrupt end on Tuesday. Lumpkin County, the No. 4 seed from Region 8, took down the host Bulldogs 2-1.       

        

Winners in Class AAAAA were Greenbrier, Gainesville and Allatoona. Second-ranked Greenbrier and No. 6 Gainesville scored respective home victories over Forest Park and Tucker. Allatoona, the third seed from Region 5, went on the road to beat Pope 2-1. Both Allatoona and Pope scored goals in the first 16 minutes of the game before Gavin McCook regained the lead for the visiting Buccaneers by delivering the eventual winner in the 77th minute with a header. They will go up against Lakeside-DeKalb or Apalachee for a place in the quarterfinals.  

            

The Class AA proceedings will get underway on Wednesday, but we already know that one of the top three teams in the state will be knocked out prior to the quarterfinals. No. 2 Calhoun and No. 3 Westminster are on a collision course for the second round. The Yellow Jackets wrapped up their regular season undefeated with a 5-0 win over Morris Innovative last week and they will begin their playoff push against Jordan. The Wildcats, who landed the second seed out of powerhouse Region 6 behind Greater Atlanta Christian, are hosting Riverside Military.    

           

In Class A, the No. 1 seeds from each of the eight areas have byes straight through to the second round. Paideia is not among them, but the Pythons upset then-No. 1 Atlanta International School 4-2 last Wednesday. The Eagles still snagged the top spot in Area 5, while Paideia finished second and will pay a first-round visit to Lakeview Academy. Atlanta International School awaits either Darlington or Holy Innocents' for its state tournament opener.

Pope, Starr's Mill close gap on No. 1 Chiefs
 

The final week of the regular season in Class AAAAA was an eventful one, starting at the top of the rankings. McIntosh was undefeated until April 16, but it has now lost two games in a row. After falling to Class AAAA No. 1 Marist, the Chiefs succumbed to Starr's Mill 2-0

last Tuesday. They still hold the top spot thanks to their overall body of work, but second-ranked Pope is hot on their trails and Starr's Mill climbed to No. 3.

 

North Paulding actually moved up despite losing and it's not hard to figure out why. The Wolfpack used a stingy defense to test Class AAAAAA No. 1 Harrison in a hard-fought 1-0 loss last Tuesday. North Paulding jumped one spot to seventh, passing Loganville-which suffered a 4-2 setback against Heritage-Conyers.

 

Close behind Harrison in the highest classification, Brookwood and Parkview swapped places at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, after the Broncos scored a 2-1 road victory over their rival last Wednesday. Norcross is making an appearance in the top 10 at No. 9 following a 1-0 win at Duluth's expense.

 

A top 10 matchup in Class AAAA saw River Ridge hammer Heritage-Catoosa 6-1 last Tuesday. River Ridge climbed two spots to No. 7 as Heritage-Catoosa fell from sixth to 10th.
