Cambridge 8, Dalton 0

Dalton (13-3-2) made its first appearance in the Sweet 16 since 2005, but couldn't advance further, falling to Cambridge (13-3-3) in the Class 6A playoffs at home on Wednesday.

Cambridge's athletic, attacking forwards repeatedly got behind the Dalton defense, and the Bears led 6-0 by halftime. Dalton goalkeeper America Quintero made several saves that prevented the final deficit from growing much further. Dalton held Cambridge to two goals after halftime.

Cambridge advanced to the Elite 8 next week.

North Oconee 10, Southeast Whitfield 0

Southeast Whitfield (10-7) couldn't muster enough offense to keep up with North Oconee (9-0-1), falling 10-0 in the Sweet 16 of the Class 4A playoffs on the road Wednesday.

The stingy North Oconee defense has only allowed four goals this season.

Southeast finished third in Region 7-4A this year and got a road victory over Druid Hills in the first round of the playoffs. North Oconee advanced to the Elite 8.
