Gwinnett is assured of taking home another soccer championship in the highest classification as Mill Creek and Brookwood will meet in the final. Berkmar won the Class AAAAAA title last year while Collins Hill took home the AAAAA trophy in 2009, 2010 and 2012. Walton is the lone non-Gwinnett program since 2009 to win the state title in the highest classification.

-McIntosh drew one step closer to winning back-to-back state titles in Class AAAAA. The Chiefs shut out a competitive Greenbrier squad 3-0 in the semifinals last night. It was the second time this season McIntosh had beaten the Wolfpack. The Chiefs have now won 43 straight games and will face Houston County in the semifinals.

-Dalton is back in the Class AAAA finals after beating Spalding 5-0 Tuesday night in the semis. The Catamounts have beaten four playoff opponents by the combined score of 29-1.

-St. Pius X, also a defending state champ, made the finals once again in Class AAA after a 4-0 win over North Hall. The Golden Lions sent the Trojans home, who had been on a Cinderella run until last night.

-Westminster and GAC make it an all-Region 6 final in Class AA. The Wildcats have won three straight Class AA titles, but GAC has been ranked No. 1 all season and has beaten Westminster twice this season.

-In Class A, Area 5 has proven to be the best this season as defending champion Paideia has shaken off an early-season malaise to make the final where it will play AIS. The Eagles were ranked No. 1 for much of the season, but were knocked off their perch by the Pythons on April 23, a 4-2 Paideia win.
