Prep Roundup: Colts sweep Warriors

Martin Garcia had a goal and two assists to help lead Coahulla Creek’s boys soccer team to a 7-1 victory in Region 5-3A play Thursday night at Gordon Central.

Garcia was one of seven players who scored for the Colts (2-0, 1-0) — Jo-An Barcenas, Sadoth Fraire, Manuel Morales, Irwin Rivera, Adrian Rodriguez and Eddie Seratto were the others — and one of two players with a pair of assists. Pedro Garcia also had two assists.

Baley Jones and Rodriguez each contributed one assist, while Missael Fraire recorded six saves in goal.

• Coahulla Creek girls 2, Gordon Central 1: Regina Pacheco scored both goals for the Lady Colts (1-1, 1-0), one in each half, and Melissa Cabrera made 17 saves to help the one-goal lead hold up on the road.

Ella Triplett had the assist as Pacheco staked Coahulla Creek to a 1-0 lead in the first half. Gordon Central responded to send the game into halftime tied at 1, but Pacheco put the Lady Colts ahead for good in the second half.

• Christian Heritage girls 1, North Murray 0: Jordan Suddath scored a goal midway through the first half and the Christian Heritage defense took care of the rest as the Lady Lions won a scrimmage in Chatsworth.

Christian Heritage had just four shots on goal, but Suddath made hers count. Lady Lions goalkeeper Sarah Massengale finished with eight saves, and Molly Crawford and Ransley Ford helped key the defensive effort.

North Murray did not report statistics by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.

Baseball

• Christian Heritage 9, North Murray 6: Ian Robbins was 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored as the Lions won their season opener in Chatsworth.

Chase Tidwell had a double and drove in a pair of runs for Christian Heritage in a game that was muddy and error-filled. Tyson Cooper had a double and a run scored, while pitcher Spencer Robbins went four innings and allowed three hits and struck out four to earn the victory.

Dakota Rhoden had a triple and Blake Davis drove in a run for North Murray (0-2), which was hurt by six errors.

• Christian Heritage junior varsity 7, North Murray 2: Jantzen Smith had a three-run homer in the second inning and Jonathan Lewallen was the winning pitcher for the Lions (1-0).

• Southeast Whitfield did not report results from Thursday’s scheduled season opener at Calhoun by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.

  • 7on7 championship game6.jpg Bringing in the best

    When high school football coaches look for events to take their teams to during the summer, they are looking for three things — top competition, organization and hospitality.
    For The Daily Citizen’s Southeastern 7-on-7 Championship, the Dalton community and local business leaders take care of the latter. The tournament officials work tirelessly to provide the organization. And the two combined assure the top competition will show up.

  • NW softball state championship file 1 mlh.jpg In the lineup again

    When Northwest Whitfield repeated as the Georgia High School Association Class 4A softball state champion last fall, that appeared to be the last time the majority of the Lady Bruins’ senior class would be teammates on the diamond.
    Now, thanks to the Stump on Sports All-Star Softball Classic, five of those six seniors will reunite to play together one more time.

  • Isabel Salinas 5 mlh.jpg All-Area Spring Female Team: Salinas hoping things keep getting better and better with age

    Isabel Salinas’ freshman season for Southeast Whitfield High School’s track and field team wasn’t up to her standards, and she really isn’t sure why it ended up that way in 2013. It could have been her injuries. It could have been not being in proper shape.
    One thing Salinas, nicknamed “Izzy” by friends and coaches, does know is that her sophomore year went a lot better.

  • poty seth.jpg All-Area Baseball Team and Player of the Year

    As a freshman at Northwest Whitfield High School, Seth Pierce came out of nowhere and was as dominant a pitcher as the area had. Finishing his “rookie” season with the Bruins, the left-handed Pierce led the area with nine victories — he also had one save — and showed overpowering dominance with a 9-3 record and 89 strikeouts in 73 1/3 innings. He finished his first season on the hill in Tunnel Hill with a 1.71 ERA while allowing 61 hits and 23 walks. Those numbers were also recorded against competition in a higher classification as the Bruins were playing Class 4A ball when the state had just five classifications. His performance earned him honors as 2012 The Daily Citizen All-Area Baseball Player of the Year.

    All Sam Dindoffer wanted was to be a kid and play basketball. But sometimes your body doesn’t cooperate.
    For the past four years, Sam and his family have faced one challenge after another since he first experienced a brain seizure at the age of 11. Since then, he has undergone four brain surgeries, a full-range of drug treatment options, many nights filled with wonder and fear, and trips back and forth to doctors’ offices from Dalton to Atlanta.

  • cchs v st pius boys tennis3.jpg Can’t win ’em all: Colts fall to St. Pius X

    VARNELL — Just as in other matches this season, there were handshakes and hugs awaiting the members of Coahulla Creek High School’s boys tennis team as they walked off the court Monday.
    Unfortunately for the Colts, this time they were of the comforting rather than the congratulating variety.

  • Creek girls fall short at Oconee Co.

    In 2013, Coahulla Creek’s girls high school tennis team saw their season end on the road at Oconee County in the first round of the Class 3A state tournament.
    Friday in the second round of this year’s tournament, the Lady Warriors again were the team to end the Coahulla Creek season, taking a 3-0 win in Watkinsville. But coach Matt Facey hopes the second-round loss means the Lady Colts will advance at least to the state quarterfinals next season.

    Replicating the start of last year’s Class 4A state title match, Dalton High School’s boys soccer team needed just four minutes to score its first goal at Southeast Whitfield on Friday.
