Three first half goals proved to be more than enough as the Lakeside Lady Vikings cruised to a 7-0 win over the Northside-Warner Robins Lady Eagles in the first round of the Class 6A girls’ state soccer playoffs at Adams Stadium on Thursday night.

Northside goalie Macy Mayoralgo made a diving save with 32:55 left in the first half, but less than 10 minutes and a pair of shots later the Vikings took a 1-0 lead.
