March has been an oustanding month for the Callaway High girls’ soccer team.
Beginning with a win over Troup, the Lady Cavaliers have ripped off five consecutive wins in March.
The latest win came on Thursday, with Callaway getting past Chattahoochee County 2-0 to improve to 7-4.
Callaway will try to make it six in a row when it visits Douglass on Tuesday in a Region 4-AAA match.
“I think a win against Douglass seals a playoff spot,” Callaway coach Matt Leonard said. “That’d be great.”
For the second straight game, Brittany Mitchell had no problem finding the net.
On Tuesday, Mitchell netted five goals in a 10-0 victory over Coretta Scott King.
During Thursday’s match, Mitchell had both of Callaway’s goals, one in the first half, and the other in the second half.
Callaway’s defense was superb, and goal keeper Frankie Pruett came through with a save on a penalty kick in the first half to help preserve the shutout.
Leonard also said Christian Cox and Kassidy Eubanks played well on the defensive end.
It was a physical match, and Leonard said he was pleased with the way his players kept their poise.
“I am very proud of this win,” Leonard said. “Their record is not that good, but they went out there and banged our girls. We never gave up, we never talked any trash, we never got any cards. They played with class. The girls did exactly what I wanted them to do. I was real proud of them.”
