Boys Varsity Soccer · Boys Soccer Finishes 2nd in Region


*An earlier version of this story was based on information from the Region Coordinator for Soccer that was incorrect and has since been fixed.

The Grady Boys Soccer team beat the Lithia Springs Lions 3-0 on Wednesday 3/24 to clinch the #2 spot in Region 6-AAAAA. The Knights finished region play 5-1, with their only loss coming on the road to North Springs back on March 2nd. However, the Spartans dropped a game to Villa Rica 3-2 on March 11th and each team finished region competition at 5-1. With both teams tied in record and total points, the tiebreaker came down to head-to-head, giving North Springs the #1 seed. As a result, Grady will represent Region 6 as the #2 seed in the GHSA Class AAAAA State Playoffs beginning next month. As the #2 seed from Region 6, they will face the #3 seed from Region 7 in the first round, but that opponent has not been determined yet. In the meantime, Grady has three non-region games remaining on its schedule before State begins.
