MOULTRIE — The Colquitt County middle school soccer team won its fourth-straight match — and got its third straight 2-0 shutout — by defeating Lee County on Thursday in Leesburg.

The Colquitt County girls got a pair of goals from Madison Sumner in a 2-2 tie with the Lady Trojans.

The Packers played well in the first half, but could not manufacture a goal.

But in the second half, Francisco Gomez sent a cross to Tyler Lopez who trapped and then put it in for the Packers first score.

Gomez scored the second goal after taking a cross from midfielder Eric Gould.

“Our midfielders did a wonderful job,” Packers coach Ashley Hill said.

The Packers are now 6-1-1 overall and 3-1 in South Georgia Athletic Conference games.

After being hampered by an injury earlier in the season, Sumner got her first start of the season in Leesburg and made the most of it, getting her first two goals of the season.

Raley Wallace and Reagan Kelshaw had the assists.

“Our offense played realy, really well,” said middle school girls coach Kristen Harrison, whose team is now 3-4-1 overall and 3-1 in conference play.

Colquitt also got strong work from keeper Kennedy Sikes, who has been filling in for the injured Makenzy Willis. Stopper Amber Kling also played well.

The Lady Packers were coming off a 1-0 victory over Hahira on Saturday in which Aubrey Norris scored the only goal in the second half.

Colquitt plays host to Valdosta on Saturday beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the stadium.
