THS soccer sweeps Cook


The Thomasville soccer boys and girls soccer squads both routed Cook, 6-0, at home on Tuesday.

The boys jumped to a 4-0 lead at the half then slowed pace in the final period to cruise to the win. 

Austin Mata and Alex Peralta each posted a pair of goals, and Lucas Haaren and Chase Clark knocked in one apiece.

Bulldogs coach Keith Gwaltney said he employed some practice techniques once the team had a comfortable lead to prepare for two more matches this week.

“We tried slowing things down a little to retain possession and work on some of those skills,” Gwaltney said. “It’s sometimes hard to slow down these teenagers because a lot of them only know one speed.”

Thomasville remains undefeated in 1-AA play with the win, and prepares for another region contest on Thursday at Brooks County. The Bulldogs then travel to Enterprise, Ala. against a AAAAAA foe on Saturday.

“One thing we talked about this offseason was scheduling stiff competition in our nonconference games,” Gwaltney said. “Hopefully that will prepare us for the region tournament.”

The Lady Bulldogs pounced early, and built a 3-0 lead with nearly ten minutes remaining in the first half before running away with the 6-0 win. Ciera McGriff notched three goals, Daniella Pistelli had a pair and Rebecca Jane White scored once.
