Head Coach Jed Lacey just about giggled while talking about the performance of his varsity girls' soccer team last weekend in Savannah as they picked up two more wins before the team heads into region play this week.

The Lady Tigers won against Richmond Hill on March 10 by a score of 4-2. On March 11, the team defeated Savannah Arts 6-1.

"They started a little slow on Friday night," he said. "We got off the bus and came out a little slow."

Richmond Hill scored first and then Dawson County proceeded to score four straight goals.

The win was Lacey's 200th as the DCHS soccer coach.

Ruthie Pittman started the scoring at 35:31 on a Rachel Rajczak assist.

Rajczak went out of the game early after an injury that left her with a significant, swollen bruise. Lacey said she will be back and ready to play this week.

"Ruthie Pittman, she's going off," Lacey said about Pittman's four goals over the weekend. "She had two goals in the first game. That was incredible."

Pittman would score again at the 33-minute mark on a Mackenzie Callas assist.

Callas added her own goal on a Lydia Blythe assist.

"You saw the scouting report because when the game started they had two girls on Rachel," Lacey said. "They started attacking Frankie...Frankie was shutting them down."

Lacey also praised the play of Ava Walker who he said had a great game at center back.

Brooke Cagle scored at 12:48.

"I thought Katie Clouse, getting her back was huge."

Where the Lady Tigers may have started sluggish against Richmond Hill, they made up for it in a fast start against Savannah Arts.

"We came out pounding them," he said. "That thing got out of hand quickly. I turned around and it was already 5-0."

Callas started the scoring on a Taylor Daniel assist and Pittman added her third goal of the weekend on a Clouse assist at 10:50.

Callas struck again for the Lady Tigers at 32:30 and Blythe also put one in the net.

"I saw some of the prettiest soccer I have ever seen from my girls and this team was ranked," Lacey said. "They didn't know what to do with us."

Kinsey Beaty scored on a Frankie Muldoon assist and Pittman finished the scoring against the Lady Panthers on a Cagle assist.

The wins take the Lady Tigers to 9-1 on the season and the team will open region play on Friday.

Dawson County will face the North Hall Trojans at 5:30 p.m. on March 17 at home.
