The Troup High soccer teams were hoping to build on their big wins over Shaw earlier in the week, but they were unable to get anything going against Carrollton.
The Carrollton soccer teams came to Callaway Stadium on Thursday and walked away with convincing victories in the Region 5-AAAA double-header.
In the girls’ game, Carrollton claimed a 6-0 victory, and it won the boys’ game 11-1.
The Lady Tigers, after winning their first two region games, are 2-1 in the region, while the Tigers are 1-2.
Both teams were coming off impressive performances against Shaw.
The Tigers were down 2-0 late in regulation, but they rallied for two goals in the final two minutes to tie it before winning on penalty kicks.
The Lady Tigers, meanwhile, beat Shaw 3-1.
Against Carrollton, it was a different story.
The Lady Trojans led 4-0 at the half, and they added two more goals in the second half to win by six.
In the boys’ game, the Trojans were up 6-1 at the half, and when they scored five goals in the second half the game ended because of the mercy rule.
Two different Carrollton players had three goals in the game.
Troup’s teams will return to the field on Tuesday for a region contest at Alexander.
