Placeholder Image

The Eastside girls' soccer team returned from spring break in dominating fashion.

The Lady Eagles picked up a 10-0 victory over Region 4-AAA rival Henry County Tuesday night.

The win secured Eastside at least a share of second place in the region.

It took less than three minutes for Eastside to net the game winner. Emily Carroll sent a ball to Savannah Hill on the left who touched it over to Amber Lafond who scored at the 37:21 mark.

With 33:33 left in the first half Sarah Gaddis added a goal off a ball from Emily House to put Eastside up 2-0.
Gaddis scored again with 27:54 left off a combination play from Lafond to Hill to Gaddis for the 3-0 lead.

Lafond scored her second goal and followed a blocked Gaddis shot with a tap-in goal to put Eastside up 5-0 with just over 20 minutes left in the half.

Lexie Langford sent a ball into the scoring area that Gaddis put in the net to complete her hat trick with 14:10 to go.

Hill and House got assists on two more goals by Lafond to complete the first half with the Lady Eagles up 7-0.

Hill scored when the Lady War Hawks keeper lept high to barely get a hand on a long shot from the deep right off the foot of Tara Harrison.

Hill's tap-in made it 8-0. Freshman Alli Coberth scored her first varsity goal with 6:40 left.

Co-captains Harrison and Lafond ended the match with 5:17 to go when they combined on a breakaway goal by Harrison.
Eastside will take on Class AAAA's No. 9 team Heritage at 5:30 p.m. Friday at Sharp Stadium.
