The No. 8 ranked Cross Keys Indians dispatched Jonesboro 3-1 with a bit less drama than their first round 5-4 shootout victory against Carrollton.

Felipe Lopez opened the scoring for the Indians by connecting on a penalty kick for an early 1-0 lead. Gilbert Ramos teamed up with Victor Owiredu to add the second and third goals as Cross Keys extended the lead to 3-0.

Jonesboro added a late goal to avoid the shutout and make the final 3-1.

The Indians (13-3-1) victory moves them into the Elite 8 for the second time in school history, the last coming in 2011 when the team went 14-6-1 under Coach Bryan Wallace.

Cross Keys advances to take on No. 4 ranked Johnson-Gainesville on Saturday, May 9 in a second consecutive road playoff game. Johnson (17-2-0) advanced to the Elite 8 with a 4-0 win against Thomas County Central.

Game time has been set for 1:00 pm at Johnson.

Class 6A Playoffs
The Lakeside Lady Vikings and Vikings were knocked out of the 2015 state playoffs with losses on Wednesday night at Hallford Stadium.

The Lady Vikings fell 3-1 in a shootout with Collins Hill. Lakeside (16-1-1) scored a goal with 1:07 to play in regulation to send the game into overtime.

Neither team could score in the 10 minutes of overtime play and went to the shootout.

Collins Hill was able to get in three kicks to come away with the victory.
