The playoff-bound Long County High School girls’ soccer team beat Bryan County, 10-0, on Tuesday in Pembroke.
With the win, the Lady Tide ended their regular season at 10-4 overall and 8-4 in Region 2-AA.  The Lady Tide go into the playoffs riding a four-game winning streak, during which they have beaten their opponents by a combined score of 41-0.  
Kelsey Higgason continued her dominance on the field scoring six goals in the contest. Samantha Garcia added two scores. Megan Higgason and Alyssa Anderson rounded out the scoring with each getting a goal.
The Lady Tide had already secured a playoff spot prior to the game, but the win did insure that they post a 10-win season in only their second year of existence.
Lady Tide head coach Brian Todd said they are scheduled to play Putnam County on May 2. As of Friday, the Eagles were 10-5 with one non-region game still on their schedule. They have secured the No. 2 spot in Region 4-AA.  
The Blue Tide also had a good night Tuesday, as they beat the Redskins, 6-1. The boys improved their record to 7-7 overall and 5-7 in the region.  
The Blue Tide end their season in fifth place in the region, meaning that they will just miss the playoffs. They had some hard luck this season, with every loss being by one goal. But even though the Blue Tide won’t see any more action this year, their season has to be regarded as a success going .500 in a tough region.
