Teagan Furbish had a hat-trick in leading the No. 8 ranked Chamblee Lady Bulldogs to a 6-0 Class 5A girls first round state playoff victory over the North Springs Spartans on Tuesday at North DeKalb Stadium.
Furbish scored in the first 10 minutes of the game to give Chamblee (13-3-2) the only goal it would need as the Lady Bulldogs defense allowed just one early shot on goal.
Savannah Lawrence would score about three minutes later to make it 2-0 and Chamblee would take that lead into the half.
Paris Williams had a big start to the second half with two goals and an assist. The first came as she got out in front of the defense on a run away with 32:11 and put the shot past the Spartans goalie to make it 3-0.
The second goal came less than a minute later as Williams again got out in front for a one-on-one with the tender to make it 4-0.
The Chamblee senior got her assist as she found Furbish crossing in front of the goal with 24:56 to play for the score and a 5-0 advantage.
Furbish came back with 18:26 to play to set up from 30 yards out and blasted one high over the goalie and under the crossbar to make the final margin of 6-0.
