The Dawson County Lady Tigers soccer program picked up two more wins last week when the team traveled to East Jackson on Feb. 14 and Providence Christian Academy on Feb. 17.

During the East Jackson matchup, 21 girls from the program saw time on the field and the team won 11-1.

Seven players contributed with goals including a hat trick for senior Mackenzie Callas.

Senior Brooke Cagle started the scoring at 35:25 with her fourth goal of the season.

Frankie Muldoon and Rachel Rajczak put in the next two before the 30-minute mark and then Ruthie Pittman added back-to-back scores.

"I like how Ruthie Pittman is coming on and developing at the center forward position. She already got five goals out of that position which is huge," said Head Coach Jed Lacey. "Rachel Rajczak and Kenzie Callas are playing a really high level which is really good to see."

Callas added the first of her three goals at 14:39 in the first half and then again at 13:14.

Sam Floyd and Emily DeMoss also added goals of their own.

Hart County's sole score came off a corner kick in the first half.

The Lady Tigers won 5-0 at Providence with five different players scoring on the Storm and goal keeper Fallan Lacey picked up her third shutout of the season.

"We came out completely flat," Lacey said. "I expect us to play a full 80 minutes of high intensity soccer. We are not getting that. The crazy part is we are on a record-scoring pace and we should be doing so much better."

Lacey said he will continue to push the team, despite the fact they went to half up 3-0.

"We fixed things at the half and the girls got a better understanding of what I wanted and to their credit, every girl that got on the pitch in the second half played flawlessly and played with passion and understanding that I demand."

Lacey praised his defense and said that Ava Walker and Devon Coates continue to be the backbone of the team and the best center backs in Class AAA.

"We have other people starting to come into their own with the likes of Grace Sheer who is playing tremendously coming off the bench," Lacey said. "She got her first goal tonight and she worked hard to get it."

The team is now 4-0.

The Lady Tigers traveled to Flowery Branch on Feb. 21 but results were not available as of press time. The team will host Blessed Trinity at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 24.
