Cartersville soccer defeats Woodland

The Cartersville girls and boys soccer teams completed a two-game sweep of visiting Woodland Friday night with the Lady Canes winning 3-1 and the Hurricanes collecting a 6-0 shutout.



The Cartersville girls soccer team came from behind in the second half Friday night to defeat Woodland 3-1 in Region 7-AAAAA action.

Following a scoreless first half, Woodland broke on top with a goal by Reagan Weightman off a Tara Gardner corner kick. The goal came in the 55th minute.

Cartersville responded just 19 seconds later and ultimately finished with three unanswered goals down the stretch to earn the win.

Abbey Craig scored to tie the game off an assist from Hattie Williams. The two then reversed roles with Williams finding the net off a feed from Craig for a 2-1 lead. Kendyl Anderson added the Lady Canes’ third goal. “I give Woodland all the credit,” stated Cartersville coach Chad Murray. “They played hard, but when they scored their goal it was like we flipped a switch. Our goals came in a 10 to 15 minute span once the girls found that competitive fire. I’m proud of our girls for fighting back when facing adversity, but we simply must play better with Blessed Trinity coming here Monday night.”

Woodland goalkeeper Chloe Ravish made 19 saves in the loss, including some quality plays.

“We played well and played hard all the way to the end,” explained Woodland coach Nicole Heiser. “This one will help us as we prepare for the challenges ahead.”

Cartersville improved to 6-3-1 for the season and 3-0 in Region 7-AAAAA.

Woodland (4-7-1, 1-3) plays next Friday at Cass.

Alex Rios beat an outstretched keeper for the goal after Daniel Abeja sent a nice pass through the Woodland defense.

Joel Zazueta added a third, first half goal for the Hurricanes in the 32nd minute. He scored on a penalty kick after Jacobo was taken down in the box.

Antonio Garcia started the Cartersville scoring in the second half when he tapped in a bobbled ball by the keeper. Rios set up the play by sending in a cross in the 50th minute. Seniors Joel Robinson and Cole Nelson added the final two goals for the Canes.
