East Paulding Girls Soccer vs Paulding County 3/15/19
East Home Game at The Boneyard
East flexes on cross-town rival Paulding County 5-0 on Friday
A resurgent East Paulding Girls soccer team played their best game of the season and handily defeated their cross-town rival Paulding County in an important Region game on Friday night at The Boneyard. In their first eight games, Paulding had allowed a paltry 6 goals. On Friday, East almost doubled that by netting five. Kim Black started the scoring for East and had two goals, while senior leader Lauren Bergevine put three in the back of the net, including two on Penalty Kicks.
The bigger story was the all-around solid play of the entire East Paulding team, especially their Defense. The defensive unit, led by Senior Morgan Gramling, locked down on the high powered Paulding offense which leads the Region with 39 goals scored. To shutout, Paulding's offense required solid team play and shows just how far this maturing East squad has come. East's record now stands at 5-4-1, while Paulding drops to 6-3 on the season.
