By staff reports
FLOWERY BRANCH -- The Flowery Branch girls soccer team rallied for a 2-1 victory over Winder-Barrow Friday night in their Region 8-AAAAA opener.

Winder scored off a corner kick midway through the first half for a 1-0 lead and it stayed that way until midway through the second half.

Lauren Kirk tied the game for the Lady Falcons (5-1-1, 1-0 Region 8-AAAAA) off a deflected shot from Corrie Thomas. Seven minutes later Thomas put the Lady Falcons in front with a goal of her own.

Flowery Branch dominated the action outscoring Winder-Barrow 17-2 for the game.
