Lady Canes miss chance for region title in OT,21764?

Posted Thursday, March 28, 2019

With a possible Region 5-AAAA championship on the line Thursday night at LaGrange, the Cartersville High girls soccer team lost a heartbreaker in overtime.

The score was 1-1 entering overtime, but three goals were scored in the first three minutes of the extra period. Unfortunately for the Canes, two of those were scored by LaGrange.

Cartersville’s Micah Vance scored the first goal of the game in the first half off an assist from Abbey Craig.

LaGrange would earn the equalizer 30 second into the second half, though, and neither team was able to get a goal for the rest the half.

In overtime, Kalyn Donegan scored off a Devondria Johnson assist just 30 seconds in, but LaGrange earned the equalizer just 20 seconds later.

Not long after that, LaGrange scored the game winner to drop the Lady Canes to 5-3-1 on the year and hand them their first region loss.

Cartersville will have a week off for spring break before returning to action April 16 at home against Southeast Whitfield.
