Soccer gets big win, has huge game Friday

Holding on to state playoff hopes by the slimmest of margins at kickoff time, the SCHS Lady Gamecock soccer team of Terry Markovcic put together their finest game of the season on Friday in disposing of Westside 3-0 at Kelly Memorial Stadium.
Following a 12-0 win over visiting Laney Monday, the Red and White can go a long, long way toward assuring themselves of that state playoff spot as Harlem’s Lady Bulldogs come to town Friday afternoon for a 5:30 kickoff.
The win over Laney has the team at 7-4 on the season, 5-3 in 3AA action.
Already with a 2-1 penalty kick victory in Harlem March 13, the Lady Gamecocks can improve their record against the others in the “Big 5” to 3-3 Friday.
There are eight teams in 3AA with three -- Josey, Laney, and Johnson probably going winless against Dublin, East Laurens, Harlem, Westside and SCHS. Four of the latter five will go to the playoffs.
Through the weekend their records against each other were East Laurens 5-0; Dublin 2-2; SCHS 2-3; Westside 2-3; and Harlem 1-4.
A win Friday by SCHS puts them at 3-3 with two of the “big” games to go and a pair of wins over one of those teams.
Next week the team will travel to Louisville to face AAA Jefferson County April 1 and go to Augusta to face Laney April 3. Jefferson County will become a region matchup next season.
Whatever Friday holds for the Lady Gamecocks they put together their best effort of the season on Friday, avenging a 3-0 loss to Westside’s Lady Patriots March 4.
Playing much better than in their 3-0 loss to Dublin just three days before, SCHS took the lead at the 20:27 mark of the first half and never let up.
Junior Lindsey Thomas lofted a free kick from just outside the box over the outstretched hands of the goalie for the score. The shot was the first of the game for SCHS.
Barely 10 minutes later on just their second and third shots, the Red and White were on the board again. Following a Thomas throw-in, freshman Tyshala Scruggs’ shot was deflected by the goalie with junior Haleigh Thompson nailing the ball into the far corner of the goal on the rebound.
The first half ended at 2-0, SCHS outshooting their guests 6-5 with sophomore Whitney Gay recording saves of four of those five shots.
A tough second half saw the Lady Gamecocks put the game out of reach when junior Anna Smith nailed a long range shot with 17:38 remaining. Gay finished with six saves. Outstanding on defense for SCHS were starting junior defenders Gillian McGalliard, Alyssa Lee, Hannah Thompson, and Kayla Chance. Defenders helping off the bench were senior Donnta Kemp and junior KB Scruggs.
Monday SCHS hosted the Laney Lady Wildcats and piled up the goals beginning just 23 seconds into the match. After stealing Laney’s opening kick Dana Kemp raced down the field for the first goal. By the time the first half ended, as well as the game, the Lady Gamecocks led 12-0 and ten different players had scored goals. On the day both Tyshala Scruggs and Thomas had scored a pair of goals each and Dana Kemp, Donnta Kemp, Tara Thompson, Hannah Thompson, Smith, Chance, Lee, and KB Scruggs had scored.
Gaining assists in the rout were Haleigh Thompson, Thomas, Chance, Tara Thompson, Smith, and Tyshala Scruggs.
