The LaGrange Lady Grangers are on the board.

After coming up short in their season opener against East Coweta on Friday, LaGrange used a strong second half to beat McEachern 4-2 on Tuesday.

The game was part of the LaGrange Invitational, which will continue on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Tuesday’s game was tied 1-1 at the half, and LaGrange scored three unanswered goals in the second half before McEachern notched a late goal.

“It was good to get our first win,” LaGrange coach Rusty Cook said.

The Lady Grangers are having to replace nine seniors from last year’s team, including Cassidy Kemp, the program’s all-time leading scorer who is now playing soccer at Kennesaw State.

One of the players tasked with filling that void is freshman Catherine Patton, who notched two goals against McEachern.

“We’ve got a lot of freshmen playing this year,” Cook said.

Sophomore Reagan Peters, who had a terrific freshman season, also had two goals on Tuesday.

LaGrange will try to make it two in a row when it visits cross-town rival Callaway today at 5:30 p.m.

LaGrange will play Oconee County at 9 a.m. on Saturday in its next LaGrange Invitational game at Callaway Stadium.

LaGrange High’s boys’ team, meanwhile, is 0-1 after falling to East Coweta 3-1 on Friday.

The Grangers got a goal from Jackson Fagundes, and goal keeper Michael Coffman had nine saves.

After today’s game against Callaway at 7:30 p.m., LaGrange will play Harris County at 7 p.m. on Friday in the LaGrange Invitational.

LaGrange will also play Jordan at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

CALLAWAY: The Cavaliers will put their 3-0 record on the line when they host the LaGrange Grangers today at 7:30 p.m.

Callaway opened its season with a win over Harris County on Friday, and it followed that up with two more wins on Saturday.

The Lady Cavaliers, meanwhile, are 1-1 after losing to Hardaway 3-1 on Friday before beating Manchester 2-0 on Saturday.
