The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — Lowndes’ boys’ soccer team lost in dramatic fashion Wednesday night, being eliminated from the Class AAAAAA state playoffs with a 3-2 loss to Newnan at Martin Stadium.

With the game tied 2-2 in the second five-minute overtime session, Newnan converted the game-winning goal off a penalty kick, less than a few minutes after Lowndes made what looked like a game-winning goal.

Unfortunately for the Vikings, the Region 1 champions, they were called offside and the goal didn’t count. That is when Newnan took advantage, scoring the game-winning goal.

Newnan took a 2-0 lead in the first half, but Lowndes responded with a pair of goals to force overtime.
