Lady Gamecock soccer now in a three-team hunt for first

With an extremely hard-earned 6-2 victory over home-standing A.R. Johnson at Lucy Laney Stadium on Tuesday, the SCHS Lady Gamecock soccer team of Terry Markovcic improved to 8-1 on the season, 7-1 in 4AA, but now find themselves in third place looking up at both Glenn Hills and Harlem. 

After hosting Westside Friday, the Red and White will face Glenn Hills in Augusta on Tuesday with a chance to throw the trio of region frontrunners into a three-way tie.

There were reverberations throughout the region on Friday when the Lady Spartans, last year’s Region 3AAA champions, upset Harlem 1-0 on the Lady Bulldogs home field.

With the win, GHHS moved into first place at 6-0 in the region with Harlem falling into second, ahead of SCHS by virtue of their 3-0 win over the Lady Gamecocks on Feb. 28.

Region standings through action on March 10, which saw Butler forfeit its fourth game of the spring, showed Glenn Hills at 6-0; Harlem at 7-1; and SCHS at 6-1.

Fighting for fourth were A.R. Johnson at 5-3; Jefferson County at 4-3; Westside at 3-5; Laney at 2-6; Butler at 1-7 (with a forfeit over Josey); and Josey at 0-8. All records are Region 4AA games only.

On March 10, the SCHS team also picked up a 9-0 win over the visiting Treutlen County Lady Vikings.

On Tuesday, the game in Augusta with Johnson was much tougher than the season opener at Kelly Memorial Stadium on Feb. 10 (a 6-0 SCHS victory).

After the first 40 minutes of the contest saw a surprising 2-2 draw, the Lady Gamecocks exploded for four second-half goals as Gabi Becton hit for two; Reagan Overcash one; and Petrice Roberts another.

To the dismay of the Lady Gamecock fans present, it was the host Lady Panthers who scored first before a pair of Madison Lewis goals gave SCHS a temporary first half lead. It, however, was short-lived. Fortunately, the Red and White righted the ship in the second half. 

SCHS outshot their opponents 24-12 and Sarah Beasley picked up eight saves.

Visiting Region 3A Treutlen County came to Kelly Memorial Stadium on Friday and was outgunned early on and never recovered.

Sidnie Dotschay hit a shot barely a minute into the game at the 38:53 mark and the Red and White never looked back. From there, the score kept rising and Markovcic was able to sub freely and rest some starters nursing injuries. 

By halftime, the score was 6-0 with six different players having scored.

When GeeGee Beasley scored on a long, arching shot at the 29:46 mark of the second half a seventh player had scored and the count reached 7-0. 

The final goals, by Overcash and Roberts were the second by each. Also scoring early were Katelyn Alvarez, Lewis, and Becton.

There was seemingly a 10th goal, this one by Skyla Rentz at the final horn, but the ball had not crossed the goal before it sounded. 

SCHS outshot Treutlen 41-1 with Sarah Beasley having a save on that shot.
