Greenbrier High School's boys and girls soccer teams moved closer to locking up a No. 1 seed in the Region 3-AAAA tournament last week with a sweep of Lakeside.
The Wolfpack girls opened Tuesday's games by beating the Panthers 6-0. The No. 3 Greenbrier boys followed with a 6-1 win.
"We started to put the ball away," Greenbrier girls coach Alex Heider said. "It was a good win for our program."
The Wolfpack girls and boys teams improved to 5-0 in region play. The boys will play at No. 15 Evans on Tuesday. The Knights' lone region loss came at Greenbrier on Feb. 21. Evans beat Richmond Academy on Tuesday to improve to 3-1 in the region.
The Greenbrier boys started fast in the first half against the Panthers and scored again less than a minute into the second half to quell any thought of a Lakeside comeback.
"We were fortunate to get those goals early," Greenbrier coach Chip Warren said. "Once we broke the ice, we got a couple of quick ones."
Lakeside was able to break through when a shot skipped off the head of backup Greenbrier keeper Brandon Sanders and into the back of the net.
"We made too many mistakes to be as young as we are," said Panthers coach Dave Morgan. "And Greenbrier's good enough to capitalize on them."
Heider's girls will play Evans on Tuesday. They have the No. 1 seed in the North locked up, barring a complete collapse.
Greenbrier traveled to Charleston on Friday to play Wando High School. The Wolfpack will play at North Gwinnett, the No. 6 team in Class AAAAA, on Saturday.
