The Heard County Middle School soccer team continued to impress Tuesday afternoon as they dominated the Bowdon Red Devils 9-0 at home.

Austin Miller and Jaden Moreland each had two goals including a nice header late in the first half by Moreland. Michael Cadwell also scored his second goal of the season.
The Braves improved to 2-3 on the season with four regular season games remaining on the schedule. The playoffs will be in April and unlike most other middle school sports, all teams from the West Georgia Conference including big and small schools will compete for the same championship.
The team has become one of the bright spots during this spring sports season competing at a level most thought improbable for a first year program.
“Like I told the team today, anytime we get a win it is good and especially a two-game winning streak, but I also saw some things we need to improve on. We need to do a better job of spreading the ball around especially wide, but we are certainly glad to get the win,” said coach Ken Wiggins after the game.
The Braves will return to action at home Thursday afternoon at 4:30 when they will take on Mt. Zion. Next Tuesday they travel to Haralson County for the last game prior to spring break.
