STOCKBRIDGE — Union Grove girl’s soccer team got another signature win Tuesday night, shutting out Columbus, 2-0, at home in a non-region game.

Columbus (12-4) is ranked No. 2 in Class AAA by Eurosport.com.

The Lady Wolverines (11-0-1, 5-0 in Region 3A-AAAA), ranked No. 5 in Class AAAA, got all the scoring they needed from senior forward Ashley Nagy, a Georgia State signee. Nagy scored both goals in the first half.

Locust Grove 10, Drew 0

RIVERDALE — The Lady Wildcats finished Region 4-AAA play with a dominant performance on the road.

Locust Grove (9-3-0, 5-3-0 in Region 4-AAA) was led by Janel Taggert, who scored three goals. Kennedy Herring had two goals, and Alex Travis, Michaela Osborne and Hayley Hall each scored one goal apiece.

Northgate 4, Lovejoy 3

HAMPTON — Lovejoy gave up three second-half goals in the final 20 minutes for a disappointing loss at home in a non-region game.

The Lady Wildcats (8-1, 6-0 in Region 4-AAAA) took a 3-1 lead early in the second half thanks to senior forward and Vanderbilt signee Cheyna Williams’ third goal.

Northgate answered with a goal in the 60th minute, another in the 75th minute and finished off the comeback with header off a cornerkick in the 78th minute.

Lovejoy can still clinch its second straight region championship with a win against Riverdale on Thursday.

Dutchtown ends the regular season 7-3-0 overall, 4-2-0 in Region 3A-AAAA. The Bulldogs will be the No. 2 seed when the region playoffs begin Tuesday, April 17.
