Soccer to host Harlem

Finishing their first round robin against the other 3AA playoff contenders at just 1-3, the SCHS Lady Gamecock soccer team will begin the second go round by hosting Westside Friday at Kelly Memorial Stadium with kickoff at 5:30 p.m.
The team is scheduled to host Laney Monday, March 24.
Standing at 5-4 overall and 3-3 in region play, the Red and White are one of five teams from within the eight-team 3AA with realistic state playoff hopes. The others being Dublin, East Laurens, Harlem and Westside.
After Tuesday’s 3-0 loss to Dublin at home, the Lady Gamecocks stand at 1-3 against the others.
Heading into Tuesday action, East Laurens was undefeated against all region teams, while Harlem was winless against the other “Big Five” members.
On Tuesday a SCHS team depleted by injuries and down to just 13 players, the Lady Gamecocks were looking for their first-ever soccer win over Dublin.
With a couple of great scoring opportunities in the opening 10 minutes, it seemed possible. The opportunities went for naught, however. Dublin broke the ice with 30:07 on the first half clock.
Still SCHS controlled the remainder of first half play, outshooting the Irish 6-4, but missing more than one good chance.
SCHS took no legitimate shots on goal in the second half before falling 3-0. Goal keeper Whitney Gay had five saves.
In SCHS’s prior game, defense paved the way for the Lady Gamecocks to get back on the winning track against one of the other teams realistically competing for a state playoff spot from 3AA.
Traveling to Harlem March 13 for the first time since one of the most disappointing losses in the history of the program a year ago, the Red and White spotted home-standing Harlem a first half goal before Dana Kemp knotted the game in the second half. There were no more goals in regulation or the two five-minute overtimes.
After 90 minutes of play, the match came down to penalty kicks with SCHS outshooting HHS 2-1 for the 2-1 win. Both teams made their second of five kicks after missing on their first.
Haleigh Thompson made that kick for the locals.
Harlem missed their next three, the Red and White their next two.
Freshman Tara Thompson lined up for the final regular kick. She drilled the kick into the upper right for the win.
Gay finished the day with seven saves, three of them during the penalty kick phase.
With their biggest win of the season under their belt, the team went back to Augusta the following day and showed no signs of letting up.
Quickly scoring on the Lady Panthers of Johnson, SCHS rolled to a 7-0 win for their third consecutive 3AA win.
Scoring two goals each were Kemp, Lindsey Thomas, and Tara Thompson. Kayla Chance picked up the other with Anna Smith recording an assist.
So dominant was the defense of the Red and White that, for the second time, Gay had no saves in a shutout as their opponents took no shots.
