Creek. The No. 1 Longhorns won Game 1 12-0, but lost Game 2 6-5. Lambert is now 29-1. ... In a marquee second-round matchup, No. 3 Parkview swept No. 5 Walton in two competitive games. The Panthers will now face Region 1 champ Coffee in the second round, which has not yet lost in the playoffs. ... Class AAAAA No. 1 Whitewater (25-5) split its series with Hardaway and will play the rubber game tonight. Like Lambert, the Wildcats had no trouble in Game 1 (8-1), but lost Game 2 by a run (7-6). ... Class AAAA No. 1 Marist also will play Game 3 tonight after dropping Game 1 to Alexander. The War Eagles shut out the Cougars 9-0 in Game 2 to stave off elimination. ... Region 8-champion Walnut Grove raised a few eyes around the state by sweeping perennial-power Columbus out of the playoffs. ... Class AAA No. 1 Pike County split with Southeast Bulloch and will need to win tonight to avoid an early exit. The Pirates, which rose to No. 1 for the first time all year in the pre-playoffs rankings, dropped Game 1 7-6 before forcing Game 3 with a convincing 10-4 Game 2 victory. The winner of the series will draw Buford, which was the top-ranked team in Class AAA all year until the pre-playoffs poll. ... In Class AA, GAC rolled on with a sweep of Pepperell. The Spartans are the No. 4 seed out of Region 6, but have not yet lost a game in the state tournament. In fact, all four Region 6 qualifiers are still alive and three of them are through to the quarterfinals. Lovett, the defending state champion, lost Game 2 last night to Calhoun and faces a winner-take-all contest tonight. ... ELCA swept into the Class A-Private semifinals, making it the lone No. 1 to advance

  

 


PLAYOFFS RECAP: SOCCER

Titians oust Wolves in battle of top-3 teams
 

 

What happens when Blessed Trinity and St. Pius X play in the same region? It makes for a brutal draw in the state tournament for at least a few teams. In this case it was bad news for Blessed Trinity (the No. 2 seed behind St. Pius X out of Region 6-AAA) and Buford (the top seed from Region 7), who had to face each other in the second round of the state tournament on Wednesday evening despite being ranked second and third in the entire state, respectively. 

            The Wolves had home-field advantage, but Blessed Trinity got a goal from Angela Bringmann in the third minute of the game and never looked back en route to a 3-1 victory. Although Buford equalized at 1-1 later in the first half when Elexa Bahr found the back of the net, the Titans pulled away with second-half scores by Caroline Cox in the 57th minute and Caroline Crain in the 73rd minute. 
            "We really battled and really fought," Buford head coach Crystal Fowler told the Gainesville Times. "The girls gave everything that they had; everybody on the team across the board...from the girls on the bench to the ones on the field, everyone was just putting their whole heart into it. I'm very proud of them."
            Next up for Blessed Trinity in Saturday's quarterfinals is a visit to Pike County, which edged Islands 3-2. The Titans remain on a collision course for the title match with St. Pius X, which battled past Dawson County 1-0.
            In Class AA, several of Blessed Trinity's former region rivals also took care of business on Wednesday. All four Region 6 squads punched their quarterfinal tickets; Greater Atlanta Christian rolled over Armuchee 10-0, Lovett handled Calhoun 5-1, Westminster blanked Jordan 10-0 and Wesleyan trounced Bremen 8-0.
            Class AAAAAA action saw all three remaining Region 8 teams

progress into the quarterfinals. Grayson got the best of Lassiter 4-2, while both Brookwood (over Walton) and Parkview (over Peachtree Ridge) notched 2-1 victories on the road. Second-ranked Grayson, however, had a much tougher test than the final score indicates. In fact, the Rams trailed 2-1 when Lassiter scored with 6:14 remaining in the contest but they forced overtime on a goal by Ella Stevens with 2:50 left. Stevens and Jennifer Westendorf both scored in the second overtime period to finish the comeback win with a flurry.  

 


PLAYOFFS RECAP - LACROSSE
By Craig Sager II
Area 2-AAAAAA dominates, Pope ends skid
 

 

The Walton girls are the No. 3 seed out of Area 2-AAAAAA, but as its 24-3 road win over Kennesaw Mountain in the first round on Wednesday proves, this is a very talented No. 3 seed. Walton's only losses this season were to top-seeded Milton and No. 2-seed Lassiter, and Milton finished the regular season perfect against in-state competition while the Trojans' lost to Milton 14-10 on April 26.

 

Walton jumped to a 15-2 halftime lead over Kennesaw Mountain and cruised to victory in the second half. Erin McBridge scored six goals and dished two assists and Kylie Holthaus recorded a hat-trick. Five Raiders (Hunter Corvin, Lindsey Epstein, Meaghan Butler, Sydney Baker, Reilly Ewing) each netted a pair of goals and five other players found the net once.

 

No. 2 seeded Lassiter dominated Newnan 25-3 and followed the lead of Alexa Daugherty, who scored a game-high four goals. Top-ranked Milton handled Hillgrove 21-1 to advance to the quarterfinals.

 

No No. 4 seed made it out of the first round in any classification, but the Blessed Trinity boys were close. The Titans fell short 12-11 in its trip to Decatur on Wednesday. Decatur survived and advanced to take on No. 3 Pope, which dominated Holy Innocents' 16-6. Pope had lost five straight games heading into the playoffs against top competition and was just 2-8 against teams with winning records prior to its first round victory.
