Prep roundup: Dalton tennis wins sub-region titles



Northwest Whitfield 7, Ridgeland 2: Wade Terrell pitched all seven innings to get the win for the Bruins, who will go for a sweep of the week’s series against their Sub-region 7B-4A foes today in Tunnel Hill.

Terrell struck out six while allowing seven hits and one walk. He helped out at the plate, going 2-for-3 with an RBI groundout in the fifth inning to bring in Edwin Hernandez.

Additionally for Northwest (7-3, 2-0), Andy Whisenant and Brady Middleton each had two-run doubles in the second inning to give the Bruins an early 4-0 lead.

Northwest won 12-0 on Tuesday in the first game of the three-game series format the sub-region is using this season.

“Everybody looks at it and says if you win two out of every three, then you’re in pretty good shape,” Bruins coach Todd Middleton said. “But you can’t count on that, especially in the first series. We’ll have Andy Whisenant on the mound (today) and I expect another strong performance.

“We’re not satisfied with two out of three.”

• Results from Murray County’s game with Pepperell were not reported by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.


Murray County boys 7, Dade County 0: Alberto Soto had a hat trick for the second day in a row, and the Indians led 4-0 at halftime on the way to another blowout win in Region 7-2A play.

Soto also had three goals in a 9-0 win at Chattooga on Wednesday. Scoring twice for Murray County (7-2-1, 7-1) against the visiting Wolverines on Thursday were Juanito Bautista, who had a pair of goals and an assist, and Jose Ruiz and Miguel Andrade, who had a goal apiece.

Fernando Arias added an assist and Humberto Alvarez made two saves to earn the shutout in goal. The Indians took 17 shots on goal.

Dade County girls 2, Murray County 1: Trailing 2-0 just five minutes into the game, Cheyenne Sancho scored in the 20th minute for the Lady Indians (6-4, 6-2 Region 7-2A) but couldn’t get the tying goal.

“We had opportunities galore,” said Murray County coach Mandy Ledford, who said her team had 13 shots while Dade County had 14. “It was hard fought. We most certainly could’ve pulled out a victory.”

Northwest Whitfield boys 5, Heritage 1: The Bruins (8-1, 3-0 Sub-region 7B-4A) were tied 1-1 at halftime but dominated the second half with four goals.

David Perez had two goals and two assists — all in the second half — while Christian Perez and Jonathan Marquez each added a goal and assist and Cielo Nunez chipped in a goal.

Northwest, which plays at South-east Whitfield today in another sub-region matchup, took 23 shots on goal to Heritage’s four.

“Hopefully we can continue some of that second-half momentum,” Bruins coach Ryan Scoggins said.

Heritage girls 3, Northwest 1: Juliana Gomez scored on a header to tie the game for the Lady Bruins (5-1, 2-1 Sub-region 7B-4A) but the Lady Generals scored twice in the second half.

Goalkeeper Deisy Garcia had 16 saves for Northwest.

Coahulla Creek boys 10 Adairsville 0: The Colts (7-3-1, 5-2 Region 5-3A) won by mercy rule in the 55th minute.

Sadoth Fraire scored four goals, Pedro Garcia recorded his fifth hat trick of the season, Eddie Serrato scored twice and Jo-An Barcenas added a goal.

Manuel Morales had two assists. Ronnie Vargas, Luis Lee-Martinez, Serrato, Oscar Andres, and Garcia each had one assist. Coahulla Creek took 62 shots. Missa Fraire, making just one save, had his fifth shutout of the season.

Coahulla Creek girls 3, Adairsville 2: The Lady Colts (2-9, 1-6 Region 5-3A) got goals from Jenny Contreras, Stephanie Perez and Harley Jackson, who also had an assist, along with Elizabeth Trejo. Melissa Cabrera made 25 saves in goal.

Coosa boys 5, Morris Innovative 2: The Tigers (4-6, 3-6 Region 7-2A) lost 11-1 to Coosa in the first meeting and only trailed 3-2 at halftime.

David Alonzo scored on a header in the 15th minute to tie the game 1-1, and Juan Adame scored in the 32nd minute.

“I really feel like if we had fewer mental errors, the score would’ve been 2-2 or 2-1 us,” Morris Innovative coach Ernie Dempsey said. “It was one of those things where we played great defense and then lost track of someone a couple times.”

Coosa girls 3, Morris Innovative 1: The Lady Tigers (0-10, 0-9 Region 7-2A) did not allow a goal in the second half and Gaby Perez scored the second goal in the program’s history. Goalkeeper Itzel Moreno had 14 saves.

• The Christian Heritage girls match with Ridgeland was postponed and moved to 5:30 p.m. on April 11 “due to a scheduling conflict,” coach Adam Bolin said.

Dalton JV boys 3, Rome 0: Justin Macias, Jose Espino and Antonio Martinez each scored once for the Cats (3-1). Kiko Rodriguez had two assists as Dalton outshot its opponents 11-7. Goalkeepers Samuel Fraire and Leuri Fraire combined for the shutout.
