5A region soccer: Gaither 2, Venice 1

The Gaither girls soccer team won its first region tournament game since 2005 with a 2-1 upset road win at Venice in Thursday's Class 5A region quarterfinals.

The Cowboys scored a pair of first-half goals and held on late to end the season of the three-time district champion Indians.

Gaither (11-5-4) took an early lead when midfielder Lauren Moore scored off a left corner kick from Kaycee McGuire in the game's fifth minute.

The Cowboys scored again in the 31st minute as Jessica Lawless cleaned up a shot by McGuire.

Venice (11-6-4) answered early after the half when Dana Laroque sent a hard shot into the right goal post, and despite outshooting the Cowboys 17-13, the Indians couldn't get an equalizer.
