Blairsville, Georgia- The Union County Panthers hosted the Pickens County Dragons in a non region matchup on Monday evening.
The game was gonna be played with mainly Varsity players in the first half and then JV players in the second half. To begin the first half, the Dragons came out and showed their speed. They showed exactly why they are 11-2. The Panthers had to adjust quickly as this was the quickest team they have played. The Dragons would quickly score in the first 7 minutes of the game. That goal was only the 6th goal Senior Aaron Helton has given up all year. This game moved very quick as both teams are quick and can get up and down the field as fast as anyone in the state. Both defenses are very good so goals were hard to come by. The Panthers had some opportunities to score but just couldn’t catch any luck. Th Dragons would score again with 10 minutes left to go in the half to make it 2-0. The Panthers had multiple chances to score in the last 10 minutes but give credit to the Dragons goalie for not letting the Panthers score. The Panthers fall to the Dragons 2-0 as the Panthers lose only their 2nd game of the year. The Panthers cap off their season on Thursday @ Gilmer County in another non region matchup.
