MOULTRIE — The Colquitt County soccer teams did not manage a goal and dropped a pair of Region 1-AAAAAA games to Lee County on Tuesday in Leesburg.
The Colquitt County girls took a 7-0 record into their region opener and were tied with the Lady Trojans 0-0 at the half.
But Lee County scored four unanswered goals in the second half for the 4-0 win.
The Lady Packers had surrendered just three goals in their first seven games and had defeated Lee County 3-2 in their scrimmage on Feb. 6 in Leesburg.
With the win, the Lee County girls raise their record to 4-1-0.
The 7-1 Lady Packers will play host to Tift County beginning at 6 p.m. Friday at Packer Park.
The Lady Devils took a 3-1-2 record into the home game against Westover on Tuesday.
The Colquitt County boys gave up a goal to Lee County with 15 minutes remaining and fell 1-0.
The Packers fall to 4-3-1 in a loss that frustrated coach Jimbo Jarvis.
“We are playing extremely well,” Jarvis said of his young team. “We are possessing the ball well, moving the ball well, doing all the things we need to do except finish the ball.
“We just can’t find the back of the net.”
Jarvis said his team had plenty of opportunities, but could not get a ball past the Trojan keeper.
He said there were shots that missed by one foot and two feet and several that were hit hard, but right at the keeper.
Jarvis said the team is concentrating in practice on finishing inside the 18 and inside the 6.
“We’re young and we’re putting a lot of pressure on ourselves,” Jarvis said. “We are possessing the ball better than the teams we are playing, but we’re just not finishing. It’s going to be frustrating until we figure it out.”
The Packers will try to convert some opportunities when they play host to Tift County on Friday.
The game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m.
The Blue Devils took a 2-2-2 record into its Tuesday home game with Westover.
“I’m interested in seeing how we match up with them,” Jarvis said of the Blue Devils.
