Milton girls LAX takes down No. 2 team in state

Lady Eagles beat Lassiter 12-3, advance to semis



MILTON, Ga. — After a low-scoring first half, Milton’s offense exploded for eight unanswered goals and held Lassiter, the No. 2-ranked team in the state, to three goals as the Lady Eagles advanced to the semifinals with a 12-3 win.

Milton head coach Tim Godby said, “This was by far our best all-around performance of the season and it came at the right time. We only had three turnovers in the game against a defense known for their high pressure and physical play. We had eight different players score in the game on eight assisted goals.”

Goalie Bridget Deehan had 10 saves in the win, and scoring was led by Kelly Hyman who scored three goals with an assist. Lexie Morton and Sophie Baez each scored two goals.

Milton will host North Gwinnett in the semifinals Wednesday. North Gwinnett comes into the game having lost just once this season.

The semifinal game will be the first meeting of Milton and North Gwinnett since 2011.
