Prep roundup: Big blast by Mason leads Lions to win



• Alicia Cole earned medalist honors as Northwest Whitfield’s girls topped Heritage in a nine-hole match at WindStone Golf Club in Ringgold.

Cole’s 7-over-par 43 led the way for the Lady Bruins, who shot a 134 to beat Heritage’s 158, while Marlee Bingham (44) and Emilee McKinney (47) also scored. Ringgold also participated in the competition, but only had two golfers, one short of the number required for a team score in the match.

• Abbi Tate’s 17-over-par 53 led Coahulla Creek as the Lady Colts tied Gordon Central in a three-team, nine-hole match at Nob North Golf Course in Cohutta.

The Lady Colts, who also got a scoring round from Presley Whitfield (58), finished with a 111, as did Gordon Central. Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe followed with a 126.

Coahulla Creek’s boys finished second, shooting a 187 that was bested by Gordon Central’s 183 but better than LFO’s 220.

Ian Conway shot a 44 to lead the Colts, who also received scoring rounds from Austin Cole (46), Brannon Wilson (48) and Alec Longmire (49).

In junior varsity boys competition against Gordon Central, Walt Douglas shot a 44 to lead the Colts (90), who also received a scoring round from David Manis (46). Gordon Central shot a 126.


Dalton girls 2, Gilmer 0: Deanna Marquez scored twice in the second half — on an assist from Alondra Salaises in the 46th minute and an assist from Yanet Hernandez in the 75th minute — to lead the Lady Catamounts (5-5) to the win in Ellijay.

Dalton coach Tony Carlson said the Lady Cats took 39 shots on goal — although he said many were right at Gilmer’s keeper — while the Lady Bobcats had no shots on goal. Carlson said Dalton keeper Maria Medina did make several good defensive plays for the Lady Cats.

Murray County boys 4, Armuchee 1: Juanito Bautista scored one goal and set up another to lead Murray County (10-2-1, 10-1 Region 7-2A) to victory in Chatsworth.

Alberto Soto, Jose Ruiz and Joel Lopez also had goals for Murray County, which led 2-0 at halftime — Armuchee converted a penalty kick to make it 2-1 before the home team pulled away again — while Alejandro Ramirez had an assist and keeper Roberto Zuniga notched seven saves. Murray County had 15 shots on goal.

Murray County girls 2, Armuchee 1: The Lady Indians (7-6, 7-4 Region 7-2A) won in overtime, with Cheyenne Sancho scoring her second goal of the game with four minutes left in the second period of the extra time.

Her first goal came in the first half and was assisted by Raven Henry. Kelsey Pack had 16 saves for Murray County.

Southeast boys 2, East Coweta 2: Erik Salaises scored with 4.6 seconds left to help the Raiders (5-2-1) tie their Class 6A opponents on the road.

Salaises scored Southeast’s first goal as well, with Jaime Arenas credited with the assist. Abel Mendiola made 12 saves as the Raiders’ goalkeeper.

Whitefield Academy girls 6, Christian Heritage 0: The Lady Lions (0-7, 0-4 Sub-region 6A-A) ended the game with 10 players on the field due to injuries, coach Adam Bolin said.

East Coweta girls 10, Southeast 0: The Lady Raiders (4-6), who trailed 5-0 at halftime, lost via mercy rule.

Calhoun girls 10, Morris Innovative 0: The Lady Tigers fell to 1-13 overall and 1-12 in Region 7-2A.

Calhoun boys 7, Morris Innovative 0: The Tigers fell to 7-7 overall and 6-7 in Region 7-2A.
