Off the strength of their 15th straight shutout, Harrison’s unbeaten girls soccer team moved into the Class AAAAAA state semifinals with a 4-0 win over Brookwood on Saturday.

The Lady Hoyas (20-0), who last allowed a goal March 4 — a span of more than 1,200 minutes — will host Parkview on Wednesday for the right to reach next Saturday’s championship at Kennesaw State. It will be a chance for Harrison to exact some revenge for last year’s championship game, which Parkview won on penalty kicks.

Harrison spread out its offensive wealth, with four different players — Treva Aycock, Carly Rich, Melissa Cameron and Lizzy Sieracki — scoring goals. Rich also had two assists, with Sieracki and Audrey Tanner each contributing one.

Kelsey Daugherty and Allison Leone combined for seven saves to record their latest shutout.

Grayson 6, Kennesaw Mountain 1: Kennesaw Mountain played well in the first half before falling on the road to the fifth-ranked team in the nation, according to the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll.

Melanie Monroe scored an unassisted goal off a corner kick for the Lady Mustangs (13-7-1) to tie the contest at 1-all with 25 minutes left in the first half.

But Grayson added another score before halftime and then reeled off four goals in the second half.

Meredith Bailey had eight saves for Kennesaw Mountain, which made its second quarterfinal appearance since 2011.

Alyssa Gattis added two goals and an assist, Lucy Mills contributed one goal and three assists and four other players — Jill Rankin, Isabella D’Alba, Alana Abbott and Mika Mapp — each had one score.
