Bradwell Institute’s boys’ and girls’ teams fell at Windsor Forest last Friday.
The Tigers lost, 4-1, and the Lady Tigers lost, 4-0.
“We were still missing four valuable players due to injury and illness,” Tiger girls’ coach Scott Akin said. “Despite the score, I was pleased with the kids’ effort. Raina Richards has come a long way in her development at the keeper position. Our defense has to do a better job of staying in good defensive alignment, but I am pleased with the progress overall.
The Tigers were at Groves High on Tuesday, where the Lady Tigers bounced back with a 10-0 win.
“Jasmine Williams and Mya Hicks scored three goals each,” Akin said. “Our young kids are playing much better, and I had three players return from injury.”
The final score for the boys’ game at Groves was not posted.
The Tigers host Effingham County tonight beginning with the girls’ game at 5 p.m.
Liberty County High School played at Wayne County last Friday under a steady drizzle that made field conditions a little muddy. The Panther boys lost, 6-0. The Lady Panthers lost, 3-1.
“The Yellow Jackets led 2-0 at halftime. We played better in the second half and made the score, 2-1, on a goal by Cortney Welch,” Lady Panther coach Jarvis McArthur said. “Wayne scored another goal late in the contest. We are still making improvements in some areas, but we must be at our best tonight at South Effingham for a game with region seeding implications.”
The Lady Panthers are 5-6 overall and 1-3 in Region 3A-AAAA. The Panthers are 0-10 and 0-4.
First Presbyterian Christian Academy dropped games to tough, physical Frederica Academy teams last Friday at St. Simons Island. The Knights, last years’ Class AA state champs, took an 8-4 win over the Highlanders. Meanwhile, the Lady ‘Lander suffered a 1-0 loss.
On Tuesday, the Highlanders dominated at Memorial Day, 15-0. The FPCA boys are 9-4-1 overall and 3-2 in Region 2-AA. The Lady ’Landers also notched a 15-0 win at Memorial Day and are 9-3 overall and 4-1 in the region.
FPCA hosts Robert Toombs starting at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 10.
