The Lady Tigers' soccer team traveled to Savannah over the weekend and came away with two wins over Savannah Arts and Islands High School.

Against the Lady Panthers, senior Emily Queen picked up three goals, all in the second half. The Lady Tigers won 4-1.

"It took a while but we finally started playing the way we are capable of," said Coach Jed Lacey. "The last 60 minutes of the game was completely dominated by us."

"Emily Queen just played lights out tonight. Once we put the ball on her foot she knew how to get it in the back of the net," Lacey said.

Queen scored on assists from freshman Rachel Rajczak, junior Lydia Blythe and junior Mackenzie Callas. Rajczak scored her third goal of the season on an assist from freshman Frankie Muldoon.

"Seeing Lydia Blythe step it up and have a great game along with the development of Rachel Rajczak, we are starting to hit on all cylinders and we got to see a glimpse of the future and man does that look good," Lacey said.

While the Mar. 12 matchup with the Islands Lady Sharks proved to be less consistent, the Lady Tigers still came away with a win.

Rajczak scored at 5:31 in the second on an assist from Callas. It was the only goal of the game.

"Today Rachel Rajczak became a big time high school soccer player," Lacey said.

"Yes we did enough to win but we have to become more of a consistent team if we are going to do any damage in the state playoffs," Lacey said.

It was the teams seventh shutout of the season and they move to 7-1-1 overall. The girls face Fannin at 5:30 p.m. Friday at home.
