Perfection is a difficult task to accomplish on any level of athletics but so far the Lady Chiefs of McIntosh High School remained perfect (6-0) at home with a 51-20 victory over the Lady Indians of East Coweta High School Saturday evening in McIntosh gymnasium.
Sandy Creek hosted East Coweta in their first home game of the season and, despite the score, most would agree it could have gone better.
"It was about as ugly as it could get," Sandy Creek head coach Chip Walker said. "We're happy with the win, but we have a lot of things to work on and many of them were pointed out tonight."

The level of soccer in the area is obviously very high. Fans would be hard pressed to remember a year that did not feature a team from Fayette County in the final or winning a championship. However, there is no such thing as a sure thing and the local coaches in region 3-AAAA were certain to remind their players of that when they opened the region playoffs Tuesday night.
