Soc­cer teams wrap­ping up reg­u­lar sea­son

The Standard Journal - - SPORTS - Staff re­ports

There isn’t much time left for Polk County’s soc­cer teams to kick their way into state play­off berths as the sea­sons for the boys and girls pro­grams be­gin to wind down in the days to come.

Three out of four of the soc­cer pro­grams lo­cally are in fifth place spots and look­ing for a way into the top four, but opportunities to gain wins are run­ning out fast.

Among those are the Cedar­town boys, who at 6-8-2 and 2-4 in re­gion 5-4A play ate com­ing off a non-re­gion tie against Coosa dur­ing Spring Break last week. The 2-2 finish against the Ea­gles on April 2 didn’t con­trib­ute to their chances of im­prov­ing their stand­ing in the re­gion, with LaGrange still hold­ing onto a first place spot fol­lowed by Cartersville, Sandy Creek and Cen­tral Car­roll.

Based on sched­ules avail­able at press time, the team gets a break this week be­fore the boys and girls play against Call­away on April 18.

The Lady Bull­dogs sit at 1-13 on the sea­son with­out a sin­gle re­gion win af­ter an 8-1 loss to Coosa on April 2.

Rock­mart on the other hand has opportunities to gain a play­off spot in the days to come.

Both the Jack­ets and Lady Jack­ets got to take Spring Break off last week, with games ahead af­ter press time on Mon­day against Gor­don Cen­tral on the sched­ule.

The 7-8 (4-7 7-AA) Jacket boys last played on March 28 in a 2-1 loss to Dade County. Their loss in pre­vi­ous weeks put them on a fifth place bub­ble in the re­gion as they faced the War­riors to start the week, with two more chances to im­prove their record in the days to come.

The 4-6-1 Lady Jack­ets are also in fifth af­ter a break and a 4-0 win over the Dade County girls on March 28.

Rock­mart af­ter their Mon­day matches have an April 16 date with Dade again, and wrap up re­gion and the sea­son against Model on April 18.
