PLAYOFF SOCCER: Branch survives upset bid; Union moves on, Johnson girls knocked out

By AccessWDUN Staff | Video by Seth Chapman

FLOWERY BRANCH — Maggie Wadsworth scored with just 7 minutes left in the match to lift the Flowery Branch girls soccer team to a 2-1 victory over North Oconee Wednesday night.

Wadsworth may have sealed the second round Class 5A playoff victory for the Lady Falcons (16-3-1) but Mollie Langner got things started with a goal in the first half.

North Oconee tied the game in the second half and it looked destined for overtime until Wadsworth got the eventual game-winner.

The Lady Falcons will take on Woodward Academy, which routed Howard 6-1 on Wednesday, next week in the quarterfinals. 

 

CARROLLTON GIRLS 4,
JOHNSON 0

A rough start for the Lady Knights turned into a season-ending loss in the second round of the Class 5A playoffs. It was the second straight year Johnson (10-9) was knocked out in the Sweet 16.

Early errors contributed to an own goal, a misplayed clearing attempt led to a goal, and then later Lady Trojans scored on a penalty kick.

Freshman Emi Kuhs tallied the Lady Knights' lone score with 16 minutes left in the second half.

 

UNION COUNTY 5,
GORDON CENTRAL 0

Madison Yost recorded a hat trick to lead the Lady Panthers (11-2) into the quarterfinal round of the Class 2A state tournament.

Yost scored a pair of first-half goals in the first 36 minutes. She added her third midway through the second half.

Union County next will take on the Thomasville-St. Vincent's winner in the quarterfinals in Blairsville.
