Tift soccer falters in region matches

Mar. 11—TIFTON — Tift County soccer fell to two Region 1-6A opponents in a tough week last week.

Thomas County Central and Lee County won boys and girls games from the Blue Devils and Lady Devils.

Undefeated TCC is currently on a streak of seven consecutive shutouts. They scored five goals in Thomasville against the Lady Devils. Lee won, 2-0, in Tifton. Head coach Sherri Constable said she felt her team outplayed the Lady Trojans, who hit two tough goals for the final score.

TCC defeated the Devils 6-2 and Lee won, 7-1. Head coach Bobby Earls said Jordan Lopez and Diego Olguin scored in the former. An own goal provided Tift's point Friday night. Earls said his crew continues to battle inexperience.
