Prep roundup: Raiders roll to another soccer win

Southeast Whitfield High School’s boys soccer team scored nine more times than Ridgeland shot the ball on Tuesday.

The Raiders got back to winning after a 2-0 loss last Friday against rival Dalton and won 9-0 in Rossville against the Panthers, who didn’t manage a single shot on goal.

Victor Garcia and Artemio Lopez each scored twice for the Raiders (5-1, 4-1 Sub-region 7B-4A), while Axl Arredondo, David Gonzalez, Ramiro Guerrero, Christopher Guijon, and Jonathan Sanchez each scored once. Assists came from Arredondo, Garcia, Gonzalez, Guijon, Isael Gutierrez, Adrian Mungia, Sanchez and Rony Sandate.

While Ridgeland’s offense was non-existant, Southeast’s took 54 shots in the game.

Southeast girls 2, Ridgeland 0: Andrea Lopez scored both goals in the second half with an assist from Tania Lopez in a Sub-region 7B-4A road win for the Lady Raiders (2-4, 1-4).

Morris Innovative boys 2, Dade County 2 (4-3): Eduardo Padilla moved into goal when the game went to penalty kicks and made a pair of saves to give the Tigers the Region 7-2A win at Harmon Field.

Mynor Bautista, Elmer Hernandez, Sergio Mendiola and David Solis all converted their kicks for the victory. Bautista scored his first goal of the year to tie the game 1-all at the end of the first half, while Russell Burse notched his first goal of the season on a corner kick in the second half.

Tigers coach Ernie Dempsey said Luis Perez keyed the defensive effort for Morris Innovative (5-4, 5-3).

Murray County boys 2, Pepperell 1: The Indians (6-0, 6-0 Region 7-2A) benefited from a Pepperell own goal in the second half as they won in Chatsworth. Fernando Arias scored off of an assist by Jose Ruiz for Murray County’s other goal.

Murray County girls 5, Pepperell 0: Morgan Devitt and Sandra Ramirez each scored twice, while Vivian Gamboa added the other goal for the Lady Indians (3-2, 3-2 Region 7-2A).

Ramirez’s goal in the first half put Murray County up 1-0 at halftime. Paxton Dolly made five saves at goalkeeper for the Lady Indians.

Ringgold boys 3, Coahulla Creek 2: The host Colts outshot the Tigers 28-10, but Ringgold converted a pair of penalty kicks and scored the decisive goal with five minutes remaining to hand Coahulla Creek its first loss in Region 5-3A play.

Jo-An Barcenas and Pedro Garcia each scored for Coahulla Creek (5-1-1, 4-1), which trailed 2-1 at halftime, while Manny Morales contributed an assist.

Ringgold girls 3, Coahulla Creek 2: Hannah Grant scored late in the first half and early in the second for the Lady Colts, but the Tigers scored the game-winner with less than 15 minutes remaining to take the win.

Regina Pacheco had the lone assist for Coahulla Creek (2-6, 1-4 Region 5-3A).

Christian Heritage girls 0, Trion 0: Christian Heritage goalie Sarah Massengale had 22 saves, as both teams had the same amount of shots on goal but neither could score.

The game ended in a tie even though Christian Heritage (0-4-1) and Trion are both members of Area 6-A, according to the Georgia High School Association’s website (ghsa.net).

Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe boys 2, North Murray 1 (OT): Fielding a team without four of his starters, North Murray coach Matt Chambers said his team was never in sync. It showed as the Mountaineers suffered their first loss of the season in a key Region 5-3A game.

North Murray (4-1, 4-1) outshot LFO 16-5, but Nieto Rodriguez’s score off of a Victor Iturbero assist was the only goal for the Mountaineers. Chambers said he expected to have his roster back to full strength for Thursday’s game at Coahulla Creek.

LFO girls 3, North Murray 0: Amber Bandy had six saves in the loss for the Lady Mountaineers (1-4, 1-4).

• Results from Morris Innovative’s girls game and Christian Heritage’s boys game were not reported by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.

Regina Pacheco had the lone assist for Coahulla Creek (2-6, 1-4 Region 5-3A).
