The Lassiter boys soccer program entered Wednesday night’s contest against South Gwinnett unbeaten with a 16-0 record. Austin Varney gave the Comets a 1-0 lead in the third minute, but Lassiter looked to be in control after halftime when Trey Luscre found the back of the net off an assist from Clay Dimick. Derek Denton would bury a shot with less than three minutes remaining to give South Gwinnett a 2-1 advantage that would stand as the Comets, who reached the postseason for the first time since 2004, would win the program’s first playoff game in over 20 years. … Despite losing six players to the US Development Academy, the Collins Hill Eagles opened up their quest for a fourth title in five years with a 4-1 win over West Forsyth.
