Most impressive of the bunch was the Columbus Lady Devils, last year’s 4A state runners-up. The Devils scored seven goals in the first 11 minutes of the game and never looked back, as they hammered Hephzibah 15-0 in a game played at CSU’s Walden Soccer Complex.

Northside also chalked up a big opening round win, blanking Baldwin 10-0. LaGrange was also a winner in Class 4A play, beating White County 1-0.

Callaway was a winner in 2A, topping Rockmart 6-3.

Two other area teams saw their seasons end. Jordan was eliminated by Dade County 10-0 in 2A, while Brookstone was eliminated from the 1A tournament by Eagle’s Landing Christian, 1-0.
