-- Walton (15-5) @ Roswell (15-3) - The Walton Raiders will be looking to avenge their regular season loss to the Hornets... Roswell prevailed 12-9 when the teams met in late April. The Roswell Hornets beat E. Coweta 14-6 in the 1st Round and took down defending champs Centennial 12-10 in the Quarterfinals. They have won 6 in a row since falling to Milton 8-12 on April 1, including wins over Walton, Mill Creek and Lassiter.
Walton bested Hillgrove 12-7 in the 1st Round, and the Raiders tood down Peachtree Ridge 12-7 on the road in the Quarters. Walton has strung together 5 wins in a row after they had unraveled a bit with losses to Hooch and Roswell a few weeks ago.
-- Lambert (16-4) @ Milton (18-2) - This is another rematch... Lambert won 13-11 on the road on March 18. The Longhorns easily handled N. Gwinnett 11-3 in the opening round, and they outlasted Harrison 8-7 on Friday. Lambert has won 6 in a row in which they've given up an average of 5.4 goals per game. During that run they topped Centennial 10-8... which is impressive given the Knights' high-powered offense. They also topped Torrey Pines (CA) 7-6 in OT at Legacy Cup.
The Eagles cruised past Kennesaw Mtn. in the opening round, but they were pushed to OT against Johns Creek before prevailing 13-12. Milton is on an 8 game winning streak since they fell 13-19 to St. Thomas Aquinas, a FL semi-finalist. Four of those were impressive OOS wins against Gulf Coast (FL), Jupiter (FL), Charlotte Latin (NC), and Memphis University (TN).
