The Bainbridge High School Lady Cats soccer team closed out their 2012 season with a 9-1 Tuesday Region 1-AAAA tournament loss to the Warner Robins High School Lady Demons.

The Lady Demons, who were the 2011 Region 1-AAAA champions, scored seven first half goals.

Bainbridge’s goal came in the 45th minute, just after a kickoff following a Lady Demons goal. Junior mdfielder Amber Braswell crossed a ball to the right side to senior midfielder Savannah Cook, who quickly got off a shot from six yards out to the center of the goal.

The Lady Demons’ last goal came in the last second. One of their forwards took a mishandled ball and scored from five yards out.

“We hustled and never gave up,” Bainbridge coach Chip Ariail said. “I would like to thank all of our seniors for all of their contributions this season and throughout their careers.

“Senior midfielders were Savannah Cook, Charleton Reynolds, Tanisha Gray, Anissa Jackson and Shemelia Bush.”

Also making strong contributions as seniors were defender Tiffany Hand, goalkeeper and forward Brianna Williams, forward Katriva Thomas and defenders Tiffany Pearson and Lyndi Denham.
