Lady Jackets fall to Northside; still seek region win


The defending 1-AAAAA soccer champs have yet to score their first region win of the year.

That losing skid continued on Friday when Thomas County Central fell to host Northside-Columbus, 5-1.

Central got on the board early with a goal from Kaylee Shaver – her 12th in the last five games – but couldn’t carry the aggression past halftime, coach Courtney Warner said.

“We just need to pull it all together and play hard for two halves,” she said. “We made mistakes and [Northside] capitalized on them.”

Central, which concludes spring break this weekend, finds itself on a two-game skid after churning out three wins a row two weeks ago – its longest streak of the season.

The Lady Jackets have just four games remaining, and will need quick region wins – and help through losing efforts by others – to secure a spot in the state tournament.

Central returns to the field at Cairo Tuesday, then resumes region play on Thursday against Bainbridge and Friday against Hardaway.

“We’ve got to move on and be ready,” Warner said.
