Placeholder Image

An epic match between the Eastside Lady Eagles (9-5, 5-4 4AAAA) and the Social Circle Lady Redskins (9-3-1, 3-1 8AA) came down to three three-minute periods at Sharp Stadium Wednesday night.

In the first three minutes, Eastside's Sydni Greer notched the first goal of the match off a ball served by Morgan Green. Social Circle then tied it in the first three minutes following halftime when Adoris Gibbs volleyed in a corner kick delivery from Ashleigh Wright.

In the final three minutes of the match, Cheyanne Merritt bent the game-winning corner kick in for the Lady Redskins to finish off Eastside, 2-1.

Social Circle goalkeeper Jessie Adams had an outstanding game for the Lady Redskins, making several athletic saves and defensive plays throughout, including stopping a penalty kick by Eastside's Green a minute after the Lady Redskins had equalized.

Eastside travels to Jonesboro for a region matchup Friday with kickoff set for 5:30 pm.
