Friday roundup: Cartersville soccer sweeps Dawson County, Local swimmers advance at state meet

The Cartersville girls and boys soccer teams defeated Dawson County Friday night to open the 2020 season while both Cass soccer teams fell at Dalton. Woodland started its tennis season with losses to North Paulding and several local high school swimmers advanced to the GHSA State Swim Meet finals on Saturday.




The Cartersville boys opened the 2020 season Friday night with a 5-2 win at Dawson County. After falling behind 1-0, the Hurricanes stormed back with a pair of goals by Alex Rios and single goals by Joel Zazueta and Joan Vargas. Daniel Abeja had a pair of assists and Brady Craig added an assist. The Canes also added a goal in the waining minutes off a free kick. The Canes (1-0) play at Woodland next Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.

CARTERSVILLE GIRLS 3, DAWSON COUNTY 1 Kalyn Donegan scored a pair of second half goals and Abbey Craig picked up the Lady Canes first goal of the regular season in a 3-1 win at Dawson County Friday night. Micah Vance assisted on the Craig goal in the 47th minute. Donegan’s first goal came ten minutes later off a corner kick by Kendyl Anderson and her second goal was off a throw in by Devondria Johnson in the game’s 62nd minute. “We dominated possession in the game,” said Cartersville coach Chad Murray. “We had possession about 80 percent of the game in the attacking third. Their (Dawson County) goal was on a defensive mistake and it put us behind 1-0 at halftime. We challenged the girls at the break to score four goals and we almost got it. We played smart and showed patience in the second half and it led to goals. We have some things to work on, but I’m very proud of the girls.” DALTON 8, CASS GIRLS 0
