LADY PATRIOTS ROLL IN ROUND 1
This is uncharted waters for the Paulding County Patriots soccer program. The Lady Patriots have never won a region crown or advanced passed the first round of the State playoffs. So each time out they are setting new records. This may explain a bit of nerves they experienced as they hosted Southwest Dekalb in round 1. After 16 minutes of play the score remained 0-0. Then the flood gates opened and the Lady Patriots went to work. Michayla Barnes broke the drought and the rout was on. In the next 52 minutes the Patriots tallied 9 more goals and won the game via the mercy rule 10-0.
The Lady Patriots will host Starr's Mill High from Fayetteville on Tuesday in what should be a much tougher contest.
