Frankie Henderson gets 150th victory as coach of Lady Cougars

The Newnan Times-Herald

It started 11 years ago with a victory over Lakeside, and Tuesday night, Newnan girls soccer coach Frankie Henderson achieved a major milestone with the 150th win of his career.

Newnan beat Harris County 4-1 in dominating fashion as the Lady Cougars jumped out early and never looked back.

Newnan built a 3-0 lead in the first eight minutes of the game.

It took Newnan less than 30 seconds to find the back of the Harris County net.

Maggie Flanagan gave the Lady Cougars the quick lead on the team’s first trip down the field.

Less than three minutes later, Alice Marsh Willems scored the first of her two goals to put Newnan up 2-0.

Emma Cramer added the final goal of the first half for Newnan.

Harris County added its only goal of the game with 14:46 left in the first half.

After a fast start by the Lady Cougars in the first half, both teams settled into a defensive battle the rest of the way.

Willems scored the only second-half goal for either side in the second half.
