Eagle’s Landing High School pulled off what could only be deemed – at least on paper – the upset of Veterans High’s girls Tuesday in the opening round of the GHSA Class AAAAA state soccer tournament Tuesday at Veterans.
The Lady Golden Eagles came in as the No. 4 seed out of Region 4. The Lady Warhawks were the Region 1-AAAAA champ thus the No. 1 seed out of Region 1.
Yet it was Eagle’s Landing with the hard-fought 1-0 win.
That ended Veterans’ year at 11-6-1, 7-1 in the division. The Golden Lady Eagles on the other hand, move on to play the winner between Forest Park and Northgate.
Warner Robins had a somewhat opposite scenario, but the same result. The Demonettes came in as the No. 3 seed out of Region 1 and faced off against Jones County, the No. 2 seed out of Region 4.
They, too, were shut out 2-0.
The Lady Greyhounds moved on at 10-4. Warner Robins’ year came to an end at 6-8-1.
