Dawson County High School varsity girls’ goalkeeper Fallan Lacey had nine saves during a March 9 game in Norcross, but it wasn’t enough as Greater Atlanta Christian scored two second-half goals to defeat the Lady Tigers 2-0.
After outscoring their opponents by a combined score of 20-0 the previous week (Union County and West Hall), the Lady Tigers were shut out for only the second time this year (Flowery Branch).
Freshman Molly Muenchen led the Lady Tigers (4-2, 1-1 Region 7-AAA) with two shots but was unable to find the back of the net after scoring a score record six goals in a single game last week vs. West Hall.
The Lady Tigers were outshot 11-5 but were tied 0-0 at the half thanks to Lacey. Unfortunately, the junior goalkeeper and her Lady Tiger teammates couldn’t keep the Lady Spartans (3-2-2, 1-0 Region 7-AAA) off the board in the second half as GAC broke through with 33 minutes remaining.
It was 1-0 until the final minutes off the contest, but GAC was able to score an insurance goal with just over three minutes left to secure the 2-0 victory.
“We played great,” Head Coach Chess Hamby said. “(We) just couldn’t finish.”
It’s been a tale of two teams for Dawson County this season. In their four wins, the Lady Tigers have outscored their opponents 38-0. In their two losses, however, they have failed to score and have allowed seven goals.
Dawson County will look to get back on track this week as they start with North Hall, another region opponent on the road, before finishing the week with stops at Northwest Whitfield and Darlington High.
