VALDOSTA — Vikettes win Region 1-AAAAA soccer title

TIFTON — The Lowndes Vikettes may have fell to the Tift County Blue Devils 1-0 on Friday night, but they were the ones walking away with the Region 1-AAAAA championship.

The Vikettes’ 1-0 loss wasn’t enough to give the Blue Devils the region champinship, as Tift County needed to beat Lowndes by two goals in order to win the region.

The Blue Devils scored the only goal in Friday night’s contest on a penalty kick in the 60th minute, which handed the Vikettes their only loss of the season. Lowndes was the only remaining unbeaten team in Class AAAAA.

The region championship victory marks back-to-back seasons Lowndes has won, edging Tift County both seasons.

The Vikettes close out their regular season schedule Wednesday night with a visit from Berrien, who is undefeated this season and leading Region 1-AA.

Friday night, the Hornets beat region foe Thomasville, 7-2, to secure second place in Region 1-AA. Cook will now host a series in the first round of the Class AA state playoffs, which begin May 4.

Tyler Quick pitched a complete game, striking out 10 batters and allowing just three hits; he also opened the scoring in the top of the fifth inning with a two-run single.

Tyler Norton was 2 for 3 with a two RBI, Gavin Merwin was 2 for 4 with two RBI and Zack Folsom was 2 for 3 with a RBI. Cook visits Brooks County Monday night for a 6 p.m. first pitch, and will hosts Lowndes and Valdosta next Wednesday and Friday.
